    Teaching and Assessment
    The delivery of the modules will draw upon two main different
    learning approaches: face to face and online teaching methods.
    The face to face teaching will take the form of lectures and
    seminars. The lectures provide you with key opportunities to
    develop your ‘critical thinking’ of the subject, to provide the
    framework for your independent study and to reinforce what
    you have already learnt. Seminars are designed to enable you
    to seek clarification of material covered in the lectures and
    practice the management tools employed within the financial
    services industry using case studies, open discussions and
    other forms of learning. The Blackboard system will be used
    to support delivery of this programme. The system allows
    you to practice online exercises, to have access to various
    case studies and to test your knowledge of the subject using
    online assessments.

    The purpose of the assessment strategy is to provide both
    formative guidance and summative assessment at Masters level.
    The assessment criteria of the modules embody this learning
    approach, as they test personal evaluation skills as well as
    the ability to work collaboratively in applying knowledge and
    techniques. The research methods and final project module
    integrates the learning cycle, giving you responsibility on
    a specific project, where the aim and the correspondent
    assessment criteria are to reach a professional level in
    researching, self developing and reporting.

    Associated Careers
    You are expected to develop career management skills
    in parallel to the educational skills. The aim is to prepare
    graduates with positive and critical way of thinking towards
    leadership. There is high emphasis on self-awareness, planning,
    leadership, negotiation, decision-making, communication and
    dealing with uncertainty. Graduates are expected to be able to
    transfer these skills to the employing organisation.
