The course’s major aim of putting management theory into practice will be developed through a variety of strategies to include lectures, and a variety of student-centred learning opportunities, including interactive tutorials, group discussion, problem-based learning, case studies and the business simulation.
Substantial use will be made of the University's Virtual Learning Environment and a wide range of academic journals and texts, in both paper and electronic format.
Lecture and tutorials serve as the principal teaching method. Tutorials serve as an opportunity to reflect on the lecture material and generally assist the learning process through discussion and group work.
The dissertation elements offer a further opportunity for you to apply your knowledge and skills in a less structured environment.
Taught modules which are delivered during semester 1 will adopt the conventional pattern of lecture and seminar to instil a learning framework and will use examinations, multiple choice tests and coursework for assessing your performance. Modules taught during semester 2 will tend to adopt a more problem-based learning approach to learning and assessment.
Assessment strategy consists of:
• Examinations involving discursive essay topics, problem case studies, or a combination
• Continuous assessment through assignments, small scale problem solving and multiple choice exercises
• Group and individual project work, including elements of the dissertation
• The Individual Research Project will develop and assess participants' capacity to undertake research according to sound methodological principles.
• The assessment strategy will aim to rigorously assess academic arguments as well as the application of theory. It will also expect participants to demonstrate a practical and integrative approach to a problem area or issue.
