Course summary

The world is currently facing numerous challenges such as climate change, global pandemics, biodiversity-loss, hunger, poverty, and gender and racial inequalities. Although an increasing number of organisations are striving to take action to operate in more sustainable ways, our contemporary wealth creation processes continue to have an increasingly destructive impact on human and environmental wellbeing. This MBA programme will not simply offer a critique from the sidelines but will actively seek to imagine and create fairer and sustainable modes of organising. The programme aims to make the connection between global-level challenges and the day-to-day practice of organisations and managers.

Assessment method

The assessment strategy is designed around two key principles: 1 - the support and assessment of learning through formative and summative assessment through the programme. 2 - the production and co-creation of purposive knowledge that has a meaningful impact on social and environmental injustice. The approach will be to conceive of the student cohort as participant action researchers. This will be reflected in the learning assessment with numerous group activities throughout the programme, some of which will form part of the assessment. This also aligns with the University's 'student as producer' philosophy. The students will work on projects e.g. an intervention in an organisation, or a new initiative to sustainability or social justice. These projects will form the basis of the assessments. We will support the students to generate outputs using a range of media that will promote imagination, creativity and critical thinking. Range of assessment formats and approaches could include: • Written: Essay, articles, blogs • Verbal: Presentations, podcasts, viva • Visual: Video, artwork, graphic novel Each individual student will have the freedom to develop their own portfolio of assessment outputs throughout the programme. Guidelines around the development of the portfolio will ensure that all key skills are assessed and developed appropriately throughout the programme. Social transformation requires cooperative and collective action.
