If you work in the business sector, this course aims to help you to gain a promotion and become confident with the decisions you make in the work place.

The combination of learning in both the classroom and the work place is designed to ensure that the acquisition and application of management skills is at the centre of this course. Our lecturers are committed to supporting you through a varied programme of learning activities. You will also be helped in the development of skills identified as essential for success in the modern business environment.

This course integrates classroom and work-based learning. Assessments rely heavily on the application of understanding and skills in a work context. Part-time students are likely to be employed in an appropriate business sector. Full-time students are expected to find a suitable work placement, and assistance is available for this.

Core knowledge and understanding is mainly acquired via lectures and seminars and directed independent study. The latter will normally make specific use of individually accessed key texts for that module as well as lecturer-designed course materials (booklet and/or web). Use will also be made of a range of accessible supplementary texts, articles, reports and other designated sources.

Hands-on experience in computer-based workshops plays an important part in developing knowledge and understanding for a range of business and managerial functions. Similar active learning opportunities are also provided within a broad range of non-computer based seminars and workshops. Team teaching in core modules will be used to support the multi-disciplinary delivery of the programme, wherever appropriate.

You will also benefit from outside speakers who are invited in from the business environment to provide active case studies and to discuss their experience with you.
