NATIONAL FLUX 500

The FLUX winners being presented with their prize.

A group of students from the UoB-MBA took second place in the finals of national FLUX 500, the largest student business challenge in UK, sponsored by IBM, BAE Systems and Deloitte.

A group spokesman who happens to be the President of the UoB-MBA Global Networking Association said: "Nothing short of our MBA Toolkit has brought us thus far, our team cohesion, analytical and presentation skills, creative thinking process and application of theory into practice was rather our competitive advantage.

"Being featured on the newspaper and the University's website is very honourable to us and our thanks goes out to the University for this wonderful opportunity, having consistently won the internal competition twice using this MBA toolkit, we cannot wait to apply them in our careers with successful expectations".

The Careers and Employability Service runs the internal competition from which the winners to represent the University are chosen.

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)

MBA students were invited to participate in the PAL scheme at the University for the first time in 2015.

This was an exciting experience for postgraduate students with potential for enhancing and improving the learning experience for new students.

Run by students for students – student empowerment is an essential part of the PAL process. PAL sessions are integrated into students’ timetables and give students a chance to raise topics of concern and participate in a relaxed, safe learning environment.

Some of the objectives of PAL

  • Learning is interdependent. Active learning is encouraged and participatory, collaborative group learning is facilitated by a trained, but non-subject expert, student leader.
  • Study skills are integrated into PAL in the sense that the subject content of a course or programme, 'what-to-learn', is fully integrated into sharing advice on 'how-to-learn-it'.
  • Operates in a way that ensures it is supplemental to lectures and other teaching sessions the students should already have attended.
