Middle to Senior organisational managers in commercial for profit organisations, the public sector and the voluntary sector who are keen to progress in their chosen career and want to broaden their knowledge, improve their skills and increase their competence in a broad range of Business and Management disciplines and functions by means of a Top-Up qualification.
The modules are delivered over the course of two semesters with the Dissertation/Major Project being completed shortly after the end of the second semester.

The Global College Malta Top-Up degree in Business and Management programme is designed to attract motivated individuals with a minimum of 120 ECTS credits or equivalent at MQF Levels 5 and 6 (with at least 60 ECTS at MQF Level 6 or equivalent).

The modules will be delivered through a flexible combination of modern face-to-face lectures, webinars, seminars and discussion forums, tutorials, group work, case studies, guest speakers, organisational visits and independent study. Delivery of the module has close regard to the needs of learners. Accordingly, much of the learning is either delivered at times to suit those learners who may have day time employment or child care commitments or made available in a supported teaching format.

Theoretical concepts might typically be delivered to students in modern face-to-face lecture formats which may then be further developed through subsequent interactions based around small group seminars, group case study analysis and digital discussions. Modern face-to-face and interactive learning sessions encourage students to critically examine key elements of business and management.

In addition to attendance at formal learning sessions, students are expected to undertake independent self-study in order to support their individual learning journeys.

During the course of the module all students will be given at least one formative feedback or feedforward event. This will be provided during the semester in which the module is taken and in time to be useful in the completion of summative work on the module.

Students following the module will normally have the following assessment regime:

  • Written examination: this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a written examination under controlled conditions.
  • Individual Essay(s): this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a specialised essay. Students will be required to explore an emerging trend or topic within the theory and practice of the module discipline. This will require an extensive search of the relevant academic and practitioner-based literature and students will need to make reference to both academic and industrial/practitioner sources in their written work.
  • Group work: this will typically account for some 20% of the final grade and takes the form of a report. A selection of the groups will be invited to present or pitch at the end of the module to a panel.

The Bachelor of Arts Top-Up degree in Business and Management programme of study utilises a variety of modern assessment techniques including coursework and examinations. Coursework is typically in the form of essays, reports or case studies, while group or individual presentations may be required to assess other competencies. Examinations typically take the form of written elements or multiple-choice questions and maybe unseen or part-seen, where assessment material is released in advance.

The major project on the Bachelor of Arts Top-Up degree in Business and Management programme of study is a written piece of work and may involve a supporting presentation. It is assessed via the production of a dissertation which is normally some 12,000 to 15,000 words in length. Details of the assessment procedures are given in the individual module specifications.
