The Business School offers courses on behalf of the Chartered
Management Institute and the Institute of Leadership and Management as
well as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. The
nationally recognised professional organisations all provide career
management information and networks.

It is important that we stress that we plan to integrate personal,
academic and career development within the course and you as a
professional learner will feel better equipped to make relevant
decisions and moves in line with your personal and career goals.



We anticipate that when you complete your degree you will possess the
ability to become a positive change agent in any organisation and an
obvious champion for the added value of a dynamic and innovative
organisational culture. You will also have had extensive and
continuous opportunity for reflective and critical evaluation of your
capability as a team worker and leader. The course may also equip you
to start your own business or expand the business you are in.

The course includes a professional and personal development strand
that will be assessed. This will enable you to enhance your
employability skills, reflect on the skills and knowledge you may need
to accelerate your career and bring value to your current and future
employment. This relates to a key theme in the Education Strategy that
offers you the opportunity to participate in a curriculum that is
focused on employability and that enables all students to maximize
their opportunities.

During the course you will have extensive networking opportunities
within the wider course team as well as the University. You can talk
through career and further development opportunities with your tutor
as well as your peers and wider circle. Whatever you decide to do you
will have a toolkit of knowledge and capabilities developed from the
course that will support and enable you.

Decisions relating to further study can be made during or after the

attendance at Creativity Clubs and the opportunities provided by the
Knowledge Network. We will be running a series of Alumni events and

further study and contact with the University.

The tutors will always be there as a source of advice and help should
you want to progress your development further. The course is aimed at
self-directed and motivated individuals and it is unlikely you will
sit still. Alumni will be particularly welcome to input into
subsequent deliveries of the MBA. Students may wish to continue to the
