Develop your ability to thrive and adapt in dynamic business environments. Your course will help you build on your existing industry knowledge to prepare you for a rewarding career within the exciting world of business. You will evaluate strategic and operational issues facing international and multinational companies, and you will explore and apply new and established management theories and techniques in order to develop solutions to these problems. Through your consultancy project, you will work on real-life business challenges facing employers. You will also learn to work as part of a team, working with students who may be studying on the other side of the world through our Virtual Learning Environment.
Delivered through distance learning, meaning that study takes place online. You will not attend our University but will benefit from accessing our virtual campus from anywhere in the world. As part of our global learning community, you will have the advantage of combining study with your professional career development. We use web conferencing and discussion forums, as online tutorials and for delivering lectures. You will receive full support during your course and interact regularly with your fellow students and our academic team.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+. Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader will need to be enabled and you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

Overall workload

Each module on our distance learning courses is individually designed to maximise your learning so study requirements will vary. As a guideline you will need to allocate around 10 hours per week to complete each module plus a further five hours for additional reading and assignments. These 10 hours of teaching and learning will be delivered using a range of interactive resources, this typically includes audio and video content, group discussions, reflective exercises, quizzes, online reading and much more. All these resources are delivered through our Virtual Learning Environment and can be accessed at a time and place that suits you.
