How we teach
You'll experience a wide range of teaching methods to suit different learning styles, including:
- Small-group seminars
- Activity-based workshops
- Group projects
- Individual projects
Management is an ever-changing field - both in industry and academia - so what we teach and how we teach it is constantly reviewed to stay relevant and practical.
Investigating current events brings concepts and theories to life. It ensures that your knowledge is relevant when you're looking for your first graduate job.
But we don't just give you knowledge for today. You'll develop skills and approaches which will help you to keep learning throughout your career, ready for whatever changes tomorrow may bring.
Business projects will be a key part of your study. You will gain experience of business planning, presentations, negotiating and the everyday decision making and creative thinking that employers value most. Project working will develop your teamworking and entrepreneurship.
I had a fantastic experience here. You have people around to support you and guide you whenever you find something difficult. They make sure that you understand how the academic work can be applied, so you don't just understand the theory... I think that's really important.
