In a business environment that is constantly changing, employers told us that they want staff that can apply their knowledge effectively within the workplace, and critically within the dynamics of high-performing groups and teams. Our courses take a clear and consistent focus on leadership, teams and dynamics which challenge you to take on different roles in delivering objectives. The teaching team who deliver the masters courses have experience of leading highprofile teams in industry and academia as well as the public and third sectors. They are enthusiastic about their areas of expertise and just as enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with you. Your fellow students will come from a wide range of geographical, educational and business backgrounds, enhancing the overall experience. What our students have in common is an enthusiasm for learning and an ambition to succeed. If you are considering applying and can add your mix of enthusiasm and ambition to the course we would be delighted to discuss entry.
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.
No work experience is required.
