Teaching And Assessment

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on course work and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the master’s dissertation or consultancy project.

Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. You’ll use software such as ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your master’s dissertation or consultancy project and then discuss its development through to completion in the final semester.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project, rather than a dissertation, you’ll still undertake primary and desk research. Through your reading, reflection and research, you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

To further enhance your employability, we offer the opportunity to undertake a master’s consultancy project as an alternative to the traditional dissertation. You’ll work in a small group, typically no more than five people, and tackle a live project from a host organisation under the mentorship of a member of our academic team. The project can be an excellent vehicle for you to relate theory to practice while developing key employability skills.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Thanks to the specialist modules – Analysing Buyer Behaviour and Brand Dynamics, Relationship Marketing in a Global Context, and the dissertation/consultancy project – you’ll have a particular edge in roles related to marketing.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.

MBA International, offered by Athens University of Economics and Business, is a world-class program particularly suited in the global, dynamically changing, and technology-driven business environment. The Program is accredited by AMBA, the Association of MBAs and was the recipient of AMBA MBA Innovation Award 2013.

The MBA International is offered exclusively in English, and attracts students from more than 20 countries. Participants of the program can select, besides the general Business Administration track, one of the 5 majors offered, thus gaining additional knowledge in an area of interest, or facilitating a career switch. The majors offered focus on Finance; International Business; Marketing & Strategy; Innovation & Entrepreneurship; Technology, Logistics & Operations. All courses stimulate intellectual excitement and active student participation. Individual and group assignments, animated discussions, case studies, presentations, business games and projects enable them to keep their minds sharp and develop a sound way of thinking.

Two of the outstanding features of the program are the Personal Skills Development Program (PSDP) and the Immersion Project. All students have to participate in these programs. The PSDP is a year-long program that runs in parallel with the other courses, and allows students to improve their "soft-skills" (e.g. stress management, time management, leadership, team-building, emotional intelligence) through a variety of pedagogical activities.

The Immersion Project, that can involve a Field Study Consulting Project, an International Internship, a Business Plan for a student's initiated venture or another relevant team or individual project, is a sought-after component of our program. It offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a business environment by working for 3 months on a real-company problem or an entrepreneurial idea. A significant number of our students get job offers while doing their Immersion Project.

Upon arrival at the MBA International program, participants find one of the most precious resources for their career development. Whether they want to switch or to improve their career options, successfully completing the Program will open doors of opportunities. All along the study program, students benefit from the assistance of cutting edge professionals providing the tools, services and techniques that utilize the competencies taught in the MBA International program. Two particular assets of the program are the Career Office and the MBA International Alumni Association.

Besides the very broad curriculum, students participate in a number of extracurricular activities, such as company days, career days, business games and competitions, athletic events etc, that aim to develop further their personal or professional interests, as well as their networking. During the first weekend in the program students participate in an experiential learning program, away from Athens. The objective of that weekend is for students to meet the other participants, and, through a series of athletic activities, to experience the concepts of leadership, team work, and planning.

A member of the United Nations Global Compact initiative since 2006, and the Global Compact Network Hellas since its foundation in 2008, MBA International takes pride in promoting Corporate Social Responsibility through curriculum, collaboration with business, academic research and various student activities.

The minimum eligibility criteria for our program are a University degree, excellent knowledge of the English language, a GMAT score of at least 550 (required only for the FT program) and at least 3 years of professional experience. We have a rolling admissions program, and two deadlines for submitting your application to be considered for the September intake: round 1 deadline is end January, while round 2 deadline is end May.
