Teaching and assessment methods
A mixture of teaching methods is used, including lectures, group work, case study analysis and guided reading. Student performance is assessed through both assignments and examinations.
It is possible to specialise within the MBA in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Quality Management, Employee Relations and IT Management. To obtain the specialism, MBA students must complete all of the core modules, two option modules and a dissertation in the chosen specialism.
In-Company Project - The University of Leicester School of Management is developing links with large and small organisations from ‘blue chip’ companies to SME’s via its Employer Engagement Programme (EEP). This latest development is to arrange a number of employer ‘hosts’ for MBA students to visit and conduct part of their dissertation research. For students who opt to engage with one of the programme hosts this will provide useful contacts and experience for MBA students because the research is likely to be of practical benefit to the host employer.
We also arrange networking opportunities with employers, transport to careers fairs, and work closely with the University Careers Service. The latter organises a careers fair and receives vacancies - some of which are very useful for MBA students. The most relevant are always highlighted by the School to draw them to your attention.
Our “in-house” MBA Careers Advisor is available for regular careers interviews and consultations to support your career planning and job applications, plus visiting consultants and expert speakers invited to deliver sessions. There is also an emphasis on workshops focusing on different occupational areas at which a range of speakers, who have extensive experience in their field, visit the School to share their expertise and knowledge. These include business and management consultants and banking and finance professionals.
