Course Content

Teaching, learning and assessment: You will attend lectures and seminars, work in groups and carry out independent learning. You will be expected to participate in discussions, develop ideas and engage with experiential learning. Assessment methods will include management reports, essays, exams, reflection on practice, and group work with presentations. A unique aspect of the course is the challenge to design, lead and reflect upon a project that focuses on an external business partner. A central part of the course experience is the regular involvement of industry through specific visits, guest lectures, scenario planning and project opportunities.

Teaching hours and attendance: Modules studied on-campus require you to attend classes and carry out independent work. Attendance requirements at QMU will depend on which module you are studying and whether you are full or part-time. In most instances the taught elements of the full-time course occur on Tuesday, Wednesday (AM) and Thursday. Part-time students have the option to select different routes each year.

Links with industry/professional bodies: QMU is an Approved Centre of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the only professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. As an approved centre, we are working towards facilitating CMI professional qualifications within our postgraduate awards. The MBA involves a number of guest lecturers and visits to industry, for example Diagio, New Lanark Heritage Centre, Nairns, Glenkinchie Distillery, and Mrs Unis Spicy Foods.
