How will I be assessed?
The underpinning philosophy of all assessments is to develop both your knowledge and skills to enter employment as a confident manager with a strong base from which to meet your own aspirations. This requires consideration of your own personal capabilities as well as looking outward at the business world. The aim is for you to become an independent and self-directed lifelong learner. Apart from the formal assessments there will be an emphasis on self, peer and group assessment. Tutors will provide feedback on formative assessments to support your development of good academic practice. All assessments are rooted in authentic and practical workplace scenarios to enable the integration of theory and practice in dynamic `real world work contexts. Exams are kept to a minimum. To facilitate learning for all students a range of assessment methods are used throughout the course, including: - Business Reports to demonstrate contextual insight and professional practice; - Project Plans to demonstrate project planning skills; - Seminar Papers to develop critical analysis skills; - In-class tests of your knowledge of core concepts in context; - Project Report integrates learning throughout the course independently applied in practice; Business simulation where you demonstrate the impact of your strategic decision making. The focus is on the impact of management education to management practice and later assessments require greater complexity and integration through independent study to support your successful transition into work. This is exemplified by two units at the dissertation stage: Management Practice and the Theory into Practice Project. These help you to consider your personal and professional development and the complexity of applying management education in practice once in employment.
