Master's Degree Scholarship Opportunity

The Master of Business in Marketing & Management Strategy programme adopts the learner-centred instructional philosophy of Problem Based Learning (PBL). The aim is to prepare learners for the demands of real life marketing and management positions in a rapidly changing, knowledge-based economy. In a PBL environment, learners are encouraged to solve problems, which are set in a real world framework involving group work, encouraging discovering and the development of new knowledge.

Deliverables for PBL problems vary to include reports, presentations, web pages, news items, posters, manuals, research papers, models, etc. Problems and projects will mirror the types of situations learners are likely to encounter when they graduate and many will involve contact with outside companies.

The programme is aimed primarily at learners interested in acquiring a highly practical Masters-level qualification in Marketing and Management Strategy.
