Essential Study and Employment Skills for Business and Management Students

Third Edition

Kevin Gallagher

  • Accessible, hands-on, and user-friendly, with the theoretical rigour required to help students make the transition from school to university quickly and effectively.
  • Tailored to business and management students at all levels, this is the essential companion for students throughout their university careers, with insights and practical activities that will prepare them for entering the job market.
  • Links study skills with the development and enhancement of emotional intelligence: the book's reflective approach nurtures confidence and promotes independent learning.

New to this Edition:

  • Extended coverage of skills such as critical thinking, reflective skills, and time management.
  • Group activity feature added to each chapter, to develop team-working skills and provide a useful teaching resource for larger classes.
  • Activities throughout have been further developed to help students put their skills into practice.
  • Chapter 10 extensively revised to emphasise how different types of quantitative data can be used with impact and clarity to both logically and emotionally develop arguments. This chapter is linked closely to skills in action, rather than simply presenting and manipulating data.
  • Chapter 13 also revised to emphasise the importance of developing professional skills and enhancing employability, with help such as building a CV.
