Learning and assessment
Teaching for all modules in Dubai takes place in blocks over a weekend - Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 9:00-18:00.
The teaching weekends are usually spaced four weeks apart, going up to nine weeks in some instances.
This is to accommodate Ramadan and holiday periods.
At Bradford core modules are taught from Friday to Sunday 9:00-18:00.
A limited number of electives are available over a weekend. Most are available as blocks during May–June over Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Some electives are only available online, for example Circular Economy, Core Principles and Concepts.
An example timetable can be provided on request, during the application process.
The majority of modules are available online. This means that if you are unable to make a weekend, you can study the module online instead, thus providing you with greater flexibility.
Assessment is mainly by a 2,000 word assignment. The Management Project is 9,000 words.
Our teaching staff can offer face-to-face guidance during the 'long weekend' teaching sessions. You'll also receive support from a dedicated programme administration team. All course material is available online. This includes a study book, lecture slides and audio, alongside discussion boards that students can use for support during their studies In addition to the face-to-face teaching four online tutorials are available after the weekend module. These will be led by the lecturer who conducted the module.
The programme is research-led, and applies the latest thinking and concepts to managerial and business issues (for example Business Ethics and Sustainability, and the Circular Economy).
