Teaching & Learning Methods

Management Frameworks Case Studies Live Cases Group Projects
Case Simulations Company Visits Individual Projects Workshops
International Visits Seminars Strategy Projects Executive Coaching

Our programme utilises a mix of learning methods including the case study teaching method as a means of introducing new theoretical frameworks; it also develops your  application, situation analysis, and decision making skills.

By honing these skills through in-class work, you achieve a high degree of confidence in applying these new frameworks to your own professional and practical needs.

You will progress to analysing "live-case" situations through the Study Visits, working with senior management from companies and organisations on exciting change management and strategic planning scenarios.

By working with the Executive Coach and the Leadership Development Workshops you also have the opportunity to explore your own approaches to leadership and strategic thinking, through the "personal-case".

Guest lecturers and industry practitioners from the business world are utilised throughout the four semester cycle of the programme.
