Mode of Study

Modular, evening classes


Learning, teaching and assessment methods.

The intended learning outcomes include, inter alia, that graduates should be able to:

  • Examine critically the nature of organisational change and evaluate the impact of change on management/leadership approaches and actions within a clear ethical context.
  • Analyse critically and evaluate entrepreneurial opportunities and activities, and apply entrepreneurship theory to management of innovation in order to achieve effective and sustainable outcomes.
  • Apply concepts, principles and models to deal with issues in simulated contexts.
  • Exhibit the management research skills necessary to aid effective management decision making.
  • Develop critical thinking and creativity in relation to contemporary business and management issues: manage creative processes in themselves and also support these in others; assist the organising of thought and analysis.
  • Conduct research into logistics and supply chain management issues based on an original perspective.
  • Communicate findings to specialist and generalist audiences and implement agreed solutions effectively and efficiently.
  • Reflect on, and learn from, prior professional experience and be capable of implementing and integrating new knowledge through personal development with past experience and applying it to the benefit of self, colleagues and staff, new markets and situations.

The programme adopts a broad range of learning and teaching approaches involving a mixture of formal and informal methods of teaching. Considerable input from students is planned through, for example, case study analysis, group discussions and presentations. Theoretical concepts might typically be delivered in a lecture followed by smaller group seminars based on, for example, group case study analysis, all based within a workshop setting. Discussion and interactive sessions will encourage students to examine critically key elements of business and management. In addition, students are expected to undertake considerable independent study to support class contact time.

Assessment on the programme 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 (which specialises in Logistics/Supply Chain Management). 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 management research skills.

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

  • Multiple-choice papers
  • Case studies
  • Project work
  • Team/group exercises
  • Essays

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- course assessments.
