What will I study?

Our teaching and learning methods enable the development and sharing of skills and knowledge and are built on an expectation of active involvement in the programme.

A participative style is used throughout to enable students to learn from each other as well as from teaching staff. Experiential learning is central to our teaching philosophy.

There is a considerable emphasis on the utilisation of theory and knowledge to make sense of your own and fellow participants' experiences at work. Case study material is widely used alongside case histories developed by fellow participants.

To ensure you gain real world business insights, we combine group based learning with practical applications. The Collective Enterprise module and your Applied Individual Project enable you to work with industry leaders to help provide solutions to their current business challenges.
