Successful completion of the MBA (Hospital and Health Services Management) highlights your potential to have a real impact on the transformation of the organisation you join.
The underpinning philosophy of all the assessments is to develop both your knowledge and skills to enter employment as a confident manager with a strong base from which to meet your own aspirations. The aim is for you to become an independent and self-directed lifelong learner. Tutors will provide feedback on formative assessments to develop your knowledge and understanding.
All assessments are rooted in authentic and practical workplace scenarios to enable learning to be transferred to the workplace. Later assessments allow for greater integration and synthesis. Exams are kept to a minimum as the focus is on practical skills such as report writing, presentation and projects. A range of assessment methods are used throughout the course for you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.
⛑Individual written reportsallow you to apply theory to case studies for in-depth analysis

You will therefore be active within an authentic learning scenario, the situation is dynamic and in real time, and most importantly you will be learning and monitoring a ‘real world’ work situation. The aim of the feedback from the tutor would be to help you to recognise your own input to the problem, and to self-assess efficacy in the achievement of the learning objectives.
