How You Study
From the outset of the course, students are expected to tackle subjects which underpin business practice, such as finance, organisational behaviour, and economics. This moves on to more complex aspects of management in the second year including sustainability, leadership, innovation, operations, human resource management, and budgeting.
In the final year, you will study core modules in strategic management, leadership, digital marketing, and philosophy, and can choose to specialise in ethics, crisis management, financial management, global marketing strategy, or independent research
Core modules on this programme have integrated opportunities for you to innovate and develop your leadership skills. There are opportunities for you to undertake problem-based learning, develop reflective practice, and design, develop, and present portfolios.
Most modules include lectures. These are designed to inspire and motivate students, introduce you to particular topics, and give an overview of current issues and debates within the discipline. Some are given by visiting practitioners who provide 'live' case material and offer students industry contacts and careers advice.
In seminars, which typically involve numbers of fewer than 20, you are able to articulate your own thoughts and clarify ideas through discussion with others.
A variety of learning methods will be used, including in-class group exercises, discussions, presentations, evaluation of sample material, and case study analysis. Students are expected to prepare prescribed material for seminars as well as generally keep abreast of current developments in their discipline.
