The teaching Learning and assessment strategy for this course is based on developing a wide range of transferrable skills derived from a syllabus which is appropriate to L6. In particular it recognises that students will not only come from a range of academic backgrounds but will also have particular subject interests.
Thus the course contains a core of Strategic Management combined with a research skills/ dissertation element which are designed to enable and develop the higher level skills of analysis synthesis and critical evaluation necessary for success at L6. Central to these skills is the ability to be an independent learner which is why assessments are all individual and open ended giving students the opportunity to shine.
The options provided represent a balance between giving students a range of popular and useful alternatives and an efficient teaching structure. In particular the rationale for providing Management of Operations and Management of Projects as semesterised courses is to enable a commonality between the Pre-Masters course. Offering students a choice of any two options from three allows them to specialise in the most popular subjects of Marketing or Corporate Finance or alternatively to acquire up to date skills in Project Management and Operations. Whichever options are chosen the combination of units develop a combination of subject knowledge and transferrable skills which are designed to maximise the employability of graduates and also to develop their skills as independent learners.
The range of assessments cover both practical practice based assignments in Project Management as well as classic evaluation of students ability to acquire analyse and synthesise academic material in a dissertation. The Strategic Management unit has a focus of dynamic enquiry which requires student to possess core knowledge of strategic techniques which are assessed by the student ability to apply these appropriately with judgement in a wide range of scenarios making the learning relevant, challenging and leading directly to the development of transferrable employable skills.
Additional: This is a level 6 top-up programme designed for students coming directly in to the final year of a degree programme. Students will be expected to have completed some business-related course at Level 5.
The course title reflects the fact that Business Administration is more widely known and accepted outside the UK but the award is also designed to have more flexibility so that a combination of units can be tailored to your previous experience.
This award is also being used for students coming from some Level 5 degrees, where the likely onward career is to be involved in setting up a small business or working in management alongside practice. An example of this is the successful students from the FD in Beauty Therapy & Spa Management.
