Course summary

Overview

In Year 1 students on all International Business Management degrees follow a common course which provides a strong grounding in the principles of modern business management. Year 2 introduces the more functional areas of business and management, including Marketing, HRM, and Operations Management. Year 3 is spent studying abroad. In Year 4 students choose from a range of specialist courses in the key functional areas of Business Management, including Marketing, HRM, and Business Law, which allows them to tailor their degree to meet their career needs and aspirations.

Teaching and Learning

In the early stages of study, considerable emphasis is given to assisting students in the transition into Higher Education through induction events in the first semester of study. These introduce students to the different teaching methods that they will encounter: mostly lectures, tutorials, workshops, as well as familiarising students with support services such as the library, computing services and the virtual learning environment. In addition, the School is committed to providing a thorough grounding in scholarship skills covering matters such as critical approaches to secondary texts and data, academic writing techniques, professional practice in Management and reflective learning.

Throughout the degree course, teaching is research-informed. The acquisition of study skills, sometimes in the form of dedicated courses, is the first stage of this process, and the course is designed so that students develop expertise in these skills as they progress through their studies, culminating in the completion of a dissertation/project. Professional development planning also forms an integral part of the course of studies throughout the degree, so that students graduate with a wide range of skills appropriate for embarking on professional level employment in a wide range of careers. These policies ensure that graduates have high levels of employability and professional career readiness.

Assessment

The programme uses a range of assessment types at all stages of study. Formative assessment is used in many course to provide students and staff with feedback on performance and the achievement of learning outcomes. This feedback is used both to inform course development, but also to enable the adaptation of learning opportunities to meet the needs of individual students and the cohort of learners. Summative assessment for most courses will involve a combination of coursework and examinations, with greater weight typically given to unseen examination rather than coursework. The format of all assessment is determined by its appropriateness for measuring the learning outcomes of courses.

Among the forms of assessment used in the programme are essays, multiple-choice question tests, written exams, presentations, group and individual projects and the dissertation.
