This MSc played a key role in enabling me to secure my new job as a business analyst for Deloitte. The technology side of the course, particularly the data analytics, connected well with the job and made me stand out.
Learning and assessment
The programme is summatively assessed by a mixture of written examinations, assessed coursework, case studies, group projects and multimedia presentations.
Assessment is integrated with learning and teaching to support and demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes for individual modules and the programme as a whole. Emphasis is place on the feedback function of formative assessment as part of the learning, teaching and assessment strategy as a whole.
Students have an opportunity to broaden their international experience by taking part in study tours embedded alongside our programmes throughout the year. These tours are provided by the Faculty where all expenses are covered. Previous tours have included trips to Bahrain (Ahlia University) and Qatar (Qatar University).
These tours help our students to gain knowledge about international business and entrepreneurship, as well as providing opportunities to practice and develop communication and interpersonal skills. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in class, all whilst becoming more aware of diverse cultures and strengthening international relationships.
Students take part in a dynamic mix of both theory and practice-related activities including: interactive problem-solving workshops, company visits, talks by guest speakers (from the public and private sector), cultural visits, and social activities
The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (eg assignments and examinations), as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.
The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.
The strong research culture of the School of Management informs the teaching and learning of our students.
Our extensive industry networks provide the avenue for application of this knowledge.
