Assessment

The assessment strategy covers a wide spectrum of approaches. Each module has its own aims, objectives, learning outcomes and methods of delivery and assessment. Assessments may therefore take the form of assessed written papers/essays/reports, oral presentations, group and individual research projects, posters, reflective papers which may involve compiling scrapbooks, case studies as well as open/closed book formal examinations.

Preparation and support is available for assessment through various activities designed by module leaders, personal tutors and library.​

The submission points for assessments are phased throughout the year to manage students' workload with specific dates made available to students at the beginning of each academic year.

Employability & Careers

Knowledge and understanding of business management, in conjunction with the development of graduate employability skills required from employers is paramount. From the moment of induction, to completion of your final year, employability is an important aspect of your degree programme.

​As well as a compulsory work experience module in year two, which we can arrange for you, we hold career fairs and social networking events with employers. Alternatively, if you intend to become a young Entrepreneur and start your own business, the Student Career Office will aid you in business practice and help develop your business idea while you are a university student. The work experience module in year 2 (level 5) seeks to offer you real world experience.

Most of our students enter the business world after graduation and will find employment in a wide range of organisations, in both the public and private sectors. For example, students have found employment as business sales executives, marketing associate professionals, financial account managers, managers and directors in retail and wholesale, estate agents, human resources and industrial relations officers, to name a few.

There are opportunities for students to continue their study at postgraduate level at courses such as the MBA generic, MBA in Project Management and other pathways, the MSc. in International Hospitality and Tourism Management and the MSc. in Sport Management and Leadership.
