The programme is delivered through a series of six or eight taught subject specific modules over two trimesters. Whilst there is a theoretical element within each module, the focus is on contemporary business issues and problems to provide case studies, and the opportunity for critical debate to enhance knowledge and practical application.
Students also study research methods and submit a research proposal at the end of trimester two (or semester one). They are encouraged to select a research topic of a contemporary nature, related to business and management, which has potential value and relevance to future career aspirations. During the third semester, students complete a dissertation which involves a research element and attendance at a series of individually arranged supervision meetings.
