Assessment methods

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study.

Assessment is through a varied range of innovative coursework methods (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test. Examples of coursework include:

Fox’s Lair!®, a Dragon’s Den-style activity in which you are tasked to work in business teams, generate a creative business idea and produce a supporting business plan. With coaching and support, teams then pitch their idea to prominent local entrepreneurs and business executives, thus developing a wide range of transferrable skills such as confidence building, team work, creative thinking and the art of presentation
A work-based live case study in which you visit and work with a real company as a strategy consultant
Studying different types of leadership and working in groups on different projects where you take it in turns to be the leader of a small team
Assessment is typically weighted as follows in your first year:

Exam: 28%
Coursework: 72%
These assessment weightings are indicative only. The exact weighting may vary depending on option modules chosen by students and teaching methods deployed by the academic member of staff each year. Indicative assessment weighting and assessment type per module are shown as part of the module information. Again these are based on the current academic session.
