This book provides practical guidance and strategies to help students make a successful transition to university and unlock their academic potential. Chapters are organised around five essential skills for success: time management, academic reading, academic writing and group-work, all of which are underpinned by independent learning. Students will learn how to demonstrate critical analysis in their writing, overcome challenges in group projects and deliver presentations with confidence and focus. In bringing together academic and employability skills, readers are encouraged to make connections between the skills they have developed inside and outside the classroom and to start the process of personal development planning sooner rather than later. 
Packed with activities, 'pause for thought' reflective tasks, student insights and model assignments, Skills for Business and Management is an essential resource for undergraduates and postgraduates on any Business and Management course. It is also ideal for those studying relating fields, such as Accounting, Finance, Human Resource Management, Hospitality, Marketing and Tourism Management.
