The course is primarily designed to be studied part-time by students currently in employment.
For each module, we will provide engaging video lectures and a variety of interactive content and activities. The online contact between lecturers and colleagues aims to help you stay motivated and committed to learning.
Each module runs with 15 credits across an academic semester of 13 weeks, requiring an estimated 15 hours per week of study time, with the flexibility for students to study from one to two modules per academic semester.
The underlying focus is on developing your ability to think critically and strategically and to enable you to develop solutions to complex problems within an ever changing and ambiguous business environment. You can benefit from the innovative and interactive content and activities provided on our online platform FutureLearn. This opens up opportunities to participate in projects with students from around the world.
One of the key aims of the programme is to provide you with experiences of real-life organisations so you will also be exposed to real-life case studies, simulations and engaging guest speakers from industry who will share their expertise and experiences of developing strategy, managing change and growth in their organisations, bringing both contemporary and theoretical concepts to life.
