The course will use a mixture of formal and informal methods of teaching and learning.  Considerable input from students is planned through interactive lectures, case study analysis, group discussions and presentations.  Theoretical concepts will be delivered in a lecture format followed by smaller group seminars based on real-life case studies drawn from different business areas.  Such discussions and interactive sessions will encourage students to examine their own assumptions critically, self-learning and thought processes. Students will be guided to key texts, references and on-line sources of information. The focus is on student-centered learning throughout the course.

Global College Malta recognises the need to support this shift to student-centered learning via their learning and teaching strategies. There are four key strategies followed to support the shift to directed self-study learning: enhancing student learning, reshaping the learning environment, implementation of academic enhancement courses and developing staff towards this direction.


By the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Develop understanding, knowledge and subject skills relating to the principles and practices of modern business management.
  • Develop subject interests by allowing access to a range of specialist modules in management.
  • Gain a firm foundation, through the course’s structure in Year One, to the crucial areas of accountancy and finance, economics and management.
  • Encourage intellectual curiosity that will contribute to the continuing professional development of an effective manager.
  • Produce graduates who are capable of operating in a multi-disciplined environment and in a variety of sectors and functions.
  • Communicate effectively (both orally and in writing) their ideas and recommendations.

  • Work in teams and groups effectively.

  • To have developed (by the end of the course) core management skills (marketing, HRM, strategy, statistics) which will be effective when the student enters the work environment.
  • To have developed effective research skills that can help the student when they enter the business world.

Mode of Study

Evening Classes


Assessment on the course is designed to be an integral part of the learning process for students and to enhance and confirm their knowledge and practice.

Formative feedback will be provided to students through a combination of self-reflection, peer group and tutor feedback. Summative assessments will provide a measure of the extent to which students have achieved the learning outcomes of the modules.

Assessment within the modules will take various forms including coursework assignments, reports, presentations, examinations and the dissertation. Full details of the assessment procedures for each module are shown in the individual module specification.

Throughout the course, students, as part of their personal development, will be offered ample opportunities to improve their transferable skills. In addition, students will also develop their research skills.

All modules, with the exception of the Dissertation, will be assessed by a combination of summative/end-of-module written papers and formative/continuous assessment (up to 50%). Continuous assessment will be undertaken via a combination of teaching and learning approaches including:

  •   Case studies
  •   Project work
  •   Team/group exercises

Students will be provided with oral and written feedback on continuous assessment and, where applicable, strategies implemented to ensure that they are fully prepared for the end of the course assessments.
