What you’ll learn

Overview

At an advanced level, you’ll study of a range of organisations and the rapidly changing environments in which they operate both nationally and internationally.

Expect to enhance your academic research skills and practical management skills. You’ll need these in order to manage human resources, use complex organisational systems and face the challenging issues affecting business in a rigorous, pragmatic and effective manner.

How will I be assessed?

We use a range of assessment tasks, including essays, reports, exams and presentations. You’ll work independently and as part of a team, including for assessments.

How will I be taught?

While independent study is key at Master’s level, Bath Spa University is a leading, teaching-focussed University, so we support you throughout your degree. You’ll learn through lectures, seminars, practical workshops, assessments, guided study and individual and group tutorials with your lecturers.

We make significant use of real-life case studies and examples, enlivening, enriching and contextualising your learning, and bring in external industry speakers wherever possible.

Opportunities

Field trips

Where appropriate, we’ll organise field trips to enrich your learning.

Work placements, industry links and internships

We use simulated work experience strategies that require you to operate as if in a real-world work environment. The curriculum is enriched by links with industry. For instance, assessments may be formed around live briefs provided by local, national or international organisations, who will work collaboratively with you to develop solutions to existing business problems or needs.
