    A new framework We have recently introduced a new framework for our full-time Masters programme, covering some significant and exciting developments that have come about through consultation with our students, staff and alumni.*

    Our portfolio of programmes offer a wide range of relevant courses in business and management, allowing you to specialise in your specific field of interest, whether this is in management, marketing, finance or a distinct field within each of these disciplines. Each programme has been developed in response to industry needs and focuses on work-based projects, ensuring that when you graduate you will have a masters degree which is relevant and attractive to prospective employers.

    All of our taught postgraduate courses will now share a common delivery platform. The new framework includes some shared modules where the content overlaps, giving you even more opportunities to work collaboratively with students from different backgrounds and disciplines, the new framework will also facilitate greater engagement with external businesses and organisations, leading to an enhanced student learning experience, designed to build on the core strengths, knowledge and experience of Nottingham Business School’s staff.
    * this framework is not currently applicable to our MBA or professional suite

    Real-world experienceAll of our courses are vocationally-oriented, providing the skills and experience that are relevant to and valued by employers.

    The real-world consultancy project, carried out in collaboration with local organisations, continues to be a key factor in the success of our courses and one on which we are keen to build. The new framework, in which the consultancy experience forms the basis of a 40-credit project, has preserved and extended this opportunity to provide you with work-based experience that is of genuine value to your future career.

    Teaching and Learning StrategyEach course is structured to encourage constructive learning within a student-centred learning environment, placing an emphasis on self-directed study, critical thinking and team work. With this in mind, our courses include a range of teaching methods, such as interactive workshops and tutorials, rather than a reliance on large group lectures.

    As our students come from across the globe and have different learning experiences, an integral element of each course is ensuring that support and guidance is in place, especially during the early stages of the course and assessment periods, to help you become comfortable with operating in a student-centred learning environment.

    As part of the new framework, we are committed to providing programmes that adopt teaching methods that are appropriate to the student cohort and the specific modules; interactivity is a key feature of every module.
