    Module Description The first part of this module focuses mainly on the internal environment of the individual business and the ways in which this can influence its operations. The business and economic principles which underpin the determination of price and output, of size and location of business activity and other business decisions are outlined in this module. Wherever possible business examples and up-to-date case study materials will be used to illustrate the application of these principles to real-world business decision making. The second part of the module focuses mainly on the external environment and its impacts on business behaviour. The main macroeconomic variables are reviewed and analysed and their impacts assessed at local, national and global levels of business activity. Wherever possible practical business examples and up-to-date case study materials will be used to illustrate the impacts of the external environment on real-world business decision-making and strategic direction.
