Programme Design

Our programmes are modular based. Each module is delivered by blended learning with a mixture of in-class delivery and web based resources and instruction. There are six modules in Year 1 with the classroom component of each module taught in a four-day block (Monday to Thursday). Year 2 is dedicated entirely to the dissertation where students complete a change management project in their workplace. This is three modules worth of work and is supported by dissertation seminars and action learning sets which are delivered in two-day blocks (Wednesday and Thursday).

Assessment is carried out through individual and group assignments, case studies, presentations, reports, reflection, posters, one examination and a change management project.
