Classroom sessions are highly interactive and build on the diversity of students’ backgrounds and experiences for the benefit of the whole cohort. Small groups provide opportunities for a person-centred approach to teaching, frequent small group discussions and the application of knowledge to students’ own working environments. On this dynamic programme, you will develop a broad and relevant understanding of key issues facing modern businesses. Forward-looking in nature, the course has been designed to build your transferable business skills and abilities, as will be required for flexible, perhaps portfolio-based, careers in the ever-changing business world.
