Teaching techniques include problem based learning in the experiential based modules. You’ll address problems that occur in real-world business, and find ways of approaching them and finding solutions.

Academics will support you through the taught sessions, and in planning the types of activities you should be engaging in during your independent study time. During this completion year, you will either produce a dissertation, where you’ll be encouraged to follow your own interests in an area related to international business and management and answer a research question that is particularly pertinent to your interest or desired career, or you can be part of a group of students who will undertake a consultancy project on a “real-world” client based problem supported by academic staff within the Faculty’s Business Clinic.
