Programme updated for September 2018 entryThis programme has recently been through our regular programme review; this ensures it addresses the current and future needs of students and employers. Applications are now open for our September course.
This course provides graduates in law or any other relevant discipline with the opportunity for advanced learning in certain key areas of international business law, in academic conjunction with the advanced study of strategic management and marketing modules, which complement and contextualise the legal areas.
The course is delivered with a strongly contextual business bias and students benefit from the networking and employment prospects offered by a large and dynamic Business School.
At the final stage of study (Industry Collaboration Project) students will be able to choose whether to pursue a purely law-based focus or an interdisciplinary law and management focus.
The course also offers a distance learning option through our official partner Robert Kennedy College, Zurich, Switzerland.
The programme is block delivered and there are several entry points throughout the year. Students will take the modules below in a sequence dependent on their start date.
The course is delivered in four blocks of intensive study periods. For each block, you study a single module for a 6-week period. Face-to-face teaching is delivered on campus for 6 hours each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Industry Collaboration Project each Wednesday afternoon during the 6-week blocks.
Part time students study alternate modules (one module on, one module off) to complete their degree in two years.
During this period, you will also undertake independent study in your own time with online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard.
For the final third of your studies, you will work on your Industry Collaboration Project, working with your own or another organisation on a live brief.
SEMESTER 3Industry Collaboration Project (ICP)
This module accounts for the final 60 credits of your degree and gives you the opportunity to examine an issue that is important to an organisation. The Industry Collaboration Project offers four different options: a Work Placement, a three month Internship, the applied Dissertation and, from September 2019, the Entrepreneurship path. You will be allocated a supervisor to mentor you through your chosen project and receive support wherever necessary from the Salford Business School Employability Team. For all options students are encouraged to address a real organisational issue, and to disseminate their work to a wider audience, meaning that you can create real impact through your Industry Collaboration Project.
Through this option, along with applying your theoretical knowledge from the taught elements of the programme, you will develop the transferable skills and qualities required for entrepreneurial behaviour and work on your own innovative business idea. You will reflect on business opportunities, challenges and strategies with the aim of establishing a new businesses, or incorporating entrepreneurial thinking into the management of an existing organisation. The three month Entrepreneurship path will be assessed through the development of an Initial Business Proposal and an 8,500 word Comprehensive Business Proposal accompanied by a 30 minute presentation.
