How will I be assessed?

The course uses a range of assessment methods. You are required to undertake a variety of individually based assessments. These assessments include individual essays, reports, portfolios, presentations, examinations, and a Dissertation. We designed the assessments to test your knowledge and understanding of the appropriate subject matter, but also to allow you to demonstrate a range of international management skills.

The assessment strategy underlines the programmes emphasis on research and independent thinking, critical knowledge of theory and practice, the ability to make informed decisions and communicate these under time pressure and, finally, the all-important skills of teamwork and oral communication of ideas.

The written assignments and reports contribute to the learning outcomes focusing on your ability to research and critically evaluate elements of the curriculum in depth. All assessments are rigorous and academic in nature, and as such require you to use a blend of formal academic sources

The end-of-unit examinations focus primarily on critical discussion of theory and current practice and provide the reassurance of guaranteed student authorship, and a true measure of your own ability and understanding.
