Assessment method

Assessment varies from module to module but is generally a combination of individual assignments and group projects and presentations. Some modules may also be assessed by exam. Strategic consulting project or dissertation You will have the choice to undertake either a strategic consulting project or traditional dissertation. The strategic consulting project focuses on practice and is based in an employment setting. You will work as part of a group on the project with 10% of your assessment being based on group work and 90% based on an individual consulting report. This is your opportunity to consolidate everything you have learnt and apply it to a real business. Academically, it tests your ability to apply your learning to real management issues. Professionally, it may well open the door to your next career move. If you choose to undertake the dissertation option, although more academic with a focus on theory, it is still highly relevant in the world of business. It will demonstrate that you can assimilate your learning, take multiple perspectives on a business issue and explore your subject thoroughly.
