Modules have been chosen to reflect the current business environment. The delivery of our modules is over two semesters (September-January & February-May) followed by the Summer semester pathways (see below). Our programmes are normally delivered through lectures, presentations, and intensive workshops. Students are encouraged to learn independently, through significant reading and assignments, both on their own and working in groups, prior to a class and afterwards. For an overview on the below listed modules, expected learning outcomes, teaching & learning methods and assessments used, please use course finder for your programme.
