Teaching primarily takes place via our excellent online learning environment my.wbs, which houses our teaching materials, interactive spaces and our online classroom: wbsLive. Easy to use, my.wbs enables interaction in lectures, discussions and syndicate groups. It also allows you to test yourself, to access lessons and lecture recordings, submit assignments and to connect with other students and academics.

Face-to-face interaction is an essential element of our programme so you will join us for two residential Weeks during the course at either our Warwick campus or our base in The Shard, London. These intensive face-to-face periods of study will embed your learning, enrich your studies and allow you to grow your network. In addition to the Warwick Week attendance, included in your tuition fee is one optional face-to-face module.

Module assessment is a mix of individual assignments, exams, group work and class tests.

Your Research Portfolio and Dissertation will allow you to apply what you have learned to a real management issue, usually from your own organisation. It will enable you to demonstrate that you can explore a business issue thoroughly from multiple perspectives and make practical recommendations based on the theories, concepts, frameworks and tools that you have learnt during the course.
