Teaching and Assessment
How you will learn
Throughout the degree, you will learn business and human resource management disciplines from industry experienced lecturers and business guest speakers. The majority of the course is taught by applying business, management and HR theory to practical scenarios where you can develop your problem solving, people management and business strategy skills. You will also be able to work with real clients and business on current commercial and business opportunities, challenges and projects. Some of these projects will provide the basis for assessment and enable you to apply your learning to authentic commercial situations and increase your work resilience.
To ensure we provide a ‘professional’ environment, the course is taught in small, interactive workshops of up to 30 students where you will discuss a specific business topic and provide opportunities for you to work on tasks, have group discussions and feedback your views in a supportive and stretching environment.
As a result of our teaching approach, you will develop confidence and interest in the business environment as well as a wide range of soft skills such as teamwork, communication, planning, organising and leadership.
Our assessments aim to reflect work-based scenarios and as a result there are minimal exams with more focus on action and problem-based assessments, with most assessments based on presentations, portfolio work or reports. Where there are exams, the majority are ‘timed assessments’ and ‘open-book’.
What you will study
You will study a selection of core and optional modules in each year. Each module is worth a number of credits and is delivered differently depending on its content and focus of study.
Most of our business degrees share core modules during the first year, so you may choose to move from a joint honours degree to a single honours option at the end of year one if you find another subject of particular interest.
The first year focuses on understanding the fundamentals of business management, how decisions are made and affect other business areas. During this year, you will develop your employability, enterprise awareness and build a foundation of business knowledge for the rest of your degree through key subject areas such as HRM, employee development/relations, management, operations and leadership.
During year two, you will further develop knowledge in financial reporting and management in core modules and start to build your own specialism through optional modules. You will also start learning research skills that prepare you for your research dissertation in the final year. During this year, you will consider whether to go on a one-year placement or study exchange at the end of year two; or continue straight to year three.
In your final year, the research dissertation will be your main focus, where you research articles about a particular topic and issue, then carry out primary research to investigate further, analyse data and come up with some recommendations and conclusions. You will also have the opportunity to specialise further and select modules that most interest you and prepare for your career.
If you feel that you would like to gain more work experience specific to your career pathway, or, you went on the one-year placement and would like to gain further work experience, you could select the short work placement option in the final semester and carry out your research dissertation whilst on placement for the organisation.
This list is indicative and subject to change.
