    Teaching and Learning Resources

    Courses are taught in our excellent Graduate and CPD centre, which provides first rate classroom and social facilities particularly designed for the needs of both full-time students and part-time students who may be coming to study after work.

    Classes are taught by academics with a long track record of working with industry and who bring in leading industry experts wherever that is possible. The University Library is only a short walk from the Graduate and CPD centre and is therefore very easy to access either before or after class and at weekends.

    Course content

    This course has been designed with the needs of full-time students and industrial part-time delegates in mind, indeed we talked with our partners when we developed the material.  Each course consists of 8 taught modules, study skills, research methods and a project. The modules are studied in a block mode, one module at a time. This means that you focus on one subject and complete it before moving on to the next.

    Attendance is full time with 35 hours (MSc) contact time per module. The daytime modules are delivered to a mixture of full-time and part-time delgates, which gives great opportunity to share experiences and network across different cultures and industries.

    Full-time day attendance: 2 week delivery with a total of ten 1/2 day lecture sessions per module

    You will normally study for one year. However, depending on your date of entry to the course, this can be extended to up to one and a half years in order for you to complete the programme of 8 taught modules and the individual project.

    A study skills and research methods module is taught throughout the programme.

    The course has the following 8 taught modules:

    Taught Modules:

        * Financial Decision Making and Risk Analysis
