How to understand the Key Information Set
Year 1 is mainly tutor led and focuses on providing you with the necessary underpinning in terms of broad business knowledge and skills. It introduces key business and management concepts.Year 2 takes a more student-led approach with an emphasis on exploring your own interests and deepening your insights as well as having more responsibility for your own learning. During this Year you develop a broader international perspective to the study of business. As well as studying four core business modules, including a module on enhancing employability, you are able to choose two other modules from a range of business areas. However, part-time students have prescribed options.The final year explores more advanced topics within business and management and you develop your awareness of change within organisations. Finally, you have the opportunity to put your knowledge into action by undertaking a self-managed independent project.
Modules are taught via lectures, seminars, practical workshops and group work. Teaching staff adopt a range of web-based technologies to deliver module content, assess, provide feedback and communicate with students. Part-time study is in an evening, blocked over a ten-week period.
The programme is assessed via a variety of methods including assignments, examinations, group work, presentations and live practical projects.
Between Year 2 and your final year, you have the opportunity to spend a year in industry on placement, or study abroad at one of our partner institutions. Alternatively you could proceed on to the final year.
Upon successful completion of this programme, graduates are guaranteed the offer of Associate Member status, or with three years' managerial experience, full Member status, from the Chartered Management Institute.
