MBA HomeLearn by DoingTeaching TeamAlumni NetworkEmployer PartnersCareers Coaching The Project Approach. The best way to test out what you’re learning is to apply it at the earliest opportunity. Your MBA projects will: Cover all the key areas of successful business practice; Cover many different business sectors; Be based on actual business issues and challenges (not case studies!); Allow you to draw on up-to-date, relevant resources. Teaching Team Mentors Your teaching team make up a network of reflective learning coaches. Our leading thinkers are also skilled in guiding you through best project, learning and reflective practice. They will curate sound and grounded academic knowledge when you need it and will stimulate the on-line debate about emerging and relevant business issues. Peer Network You’ll join a dynamic on-line community comprised of fellow students, from across the Globe. You’ll work in virtual teams and learn to contribute knowledge, ideas and feedback across the network. Assessment Test Measuring Your Learning A key component of the MBA is the record you keep of what you have done. You will discuss this regularly with your mentors to identify gaps and ways of filling them. We assess through reflective narrative, interviews, peer feedback, personal career planning reviews and employer feedback. There are two key areas that are assessed: 1.Output: reports, presentations, web pages, case studies you write & papers you author. 2.Process: how you and your team reach decisions, the choices you made and why, possible solutions explored and why. We also look for evidence of skills and attributes you have developed.
