GLENDONBROOK INSTITUTE FOR ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT

Entrepreneurship will be studied in the context of both academic theory and self-reflection to see if you personally have the qualities to take action and make an idea happen.
Failure in business is often seen as a negative outcome but there are vital lessons that can be learnt from failing and we will put this into context with the reasons why many organisations do fail, how to avoid it and how to wind up a company successfully if you do fail.

The world is in a global recession. Innovation has been placed at the heart of international policy to drive jobs, growth and recovery but what is the innovation process? How do we best support innovation to catalyse growth and bring renewed prosperity? How do we encourage people to display entrepreneurial behaviour and show them that, with the right resources and attitudes, ideas can be turned into profitable products and services?

This programme analyses the Entrepreneur and the innovation process giving you the opportunity to explore and reflect on the skills needed for success. As well as the ability to set up their own venture, graduates of this programme will also have the skills to progress into large blue chip companies and work in R&D management, developing new products, markets and customer segments.

The Glendonbrook Institute for Enterprise Development’s aim is to encourage you to develop enterprising and innovative skills through the programme’s dedicated modules. In a few cases, you show true entrepreneurial behaviour by running or aspiring to set up your own businesses and we’ll provide support for you to do so via a range of formal and informal services.

Our programme provides you with in-depth teaching of subjects that are often only briefly mentioned in traditional business programmes – intellectual property; sources of funding for small business and business failure will all be studied as complete modules. Intellectual property is of vital importance to the entrepreneur, we have also devoted a whole module to studying the details and practical application of this rarely studied topic.

In addition, the Collaborative Project module will provide you with the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills such as problem solving and strategic planning whilst working together on a real business problem.

See the website http://www.lborolondon.ac.uk/study/institutes-programmes/entrepreneurship-and-innovation-management/

Programme Aims

a) Develop an understanding of the importance of an entrepreneurial attitude in individuals and organisations
b) Develop your critical thinking skills, in order to evaluate the factors affecting the success of the innovation process
c) Use action based learning to develop insight into the complexity of the innovation process, analysing and evaluating problems and responding to challenges in real time
d) Develop your awareness of the help and information available to new organisations and the sources of funding they can attract
e) To provide you with the skills of advanced networking and team working in order to compete in a rapidly changing business environment

Programme Structure

To complete the MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, students must complete 8 x 15 credit modules. All students must complete a Dissertation worth 60 credits.

This course is for doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and pharmacists with an interest in diabetes care. It aims to develop the scientific basis for improvement in diabetes clinical practice and public health using robust epidemiological, evidence based and social science methodologies.

Diabetes is becoming an increasingly common condition among every population group, both in the developed and developing countries. It has a major impact on the physical, psychological and general wellbeing of individuals and their families. It can lead to disabilities, for example blindness, chronic morbidity, and mortality through heart disease, stroke and renal failure. Yet, there is evidence that effective treatment can increase life expectancy, reduce the risk of complications and even delay or prevent onset. This course will prepare you to take an evidence-based approach to diabetic care and will allow you to specialise in an area of your choice. It has been developed with clinical colleagues and blends the theoretical perspectives with practicalities of implementing an effective diabetic care programme. This course emphasises the effective use of multidisciplinary teams in problem solving and patient care.

Delivered through online learning, the course is ideal for international students who wish to study the international dimension of diabetes and apply the principles to care in developing countries.

Teaching, learning and assessment

A range of student-centred e-learning methods including online tutorials are utilised. Your performance will be assessed by systematic reviews, presentations and posters.

Teaching hours and attendance

Both the full-time and part-time routes are taught by distance e-learning. The fulltime route allows the student to complete the online programme over one year, and would probably be best suited for students in part-time employment. The part-time route allows you to space your studies out over a longer period of time to suit your needs and there is flexibility in which modules you undertake each year. On average you will be required to spend approximately 150 hours of study per module depending on credit rating.

Programme description

This programme is a comprehensive and intensive investigation into key areas in accounting and finance. Designed for those with a quantitative background, it is both academically rigorous and closely in line with professional practice.

The MSc in Accounting and Finance is especially useful for those graduates with work experience in accounting looking to gain essential practical skills in finance - and, of course, vice versa. Although the compulsory core courses ensure a good balance between both accounting and finance study, the option courses give students the opportunity to specialise - tailoring their studies towards their chosen career.

Studying accounting and finance in Edinburgh gives students the opportunity to base themselves at the heart of the UK's second largest financial centre.

Many of Europe's leading financial institutions have their headquarters here, a fact that we make full use of on the MSc programme. We regularly bring guest speakers to the School to talk directly to accounting and finance students on real, current practice. The School also maintains good relationships with a number of accounting and finance professionals who will be on hand to provide advice on research and career opportunities. It is essential connections like these that characterise the dynamic nature of this strongly vocational programme.

Our strong connection to industry is exemplified by our work in the Centre for Financial Markets Research, and the Institute of Public Sector Accounting Research. Bringing together leading academics and practitioners, the centres are a keen theatre of debate, creating new thoughts, new ideas for both the theoretical study and practical application of accounting, finance and investment.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Learning outcomes

This programme enables students to analyse financial statements and to show the links between accounting statements, valuation methods and investment analysis.

Knowledge and understanding

Students will gain knowledge of global financial markets and the finance and investment industry – how different organisations interact, their roles, and factors behind success or failure. Students will learn how to estimate the fair value for an investment, to test assumptions and sensitivities, and to compare different investments.

Students will gain an understanding of the role of different asset classes, their behaviour in isolation and in relation to other asset classes, and an understanding of how portfolios of investments can be constructed and analysed.

Intellectual skills

Students will develop:

Critical analysis skills – an ability to assimilate new knowledge in the field of accounting and finance as well as the capacity to provide critical analysis of the field.
Research skills – an ability to identify and define pertinent research questions, to review the relevant literature, to define a proper methodology and to conduct research in the context of data analysis or experiments.
Discipline - a major difficulty in investment is removing emotion from the decision-making process. Study into behavioural finance shows that the desire of investors to follow consensus, and the ease with which they can misinterpret data, are obstacles to sound decision making. The programme will seek to imbue students with the discipline required to make good investment decisions.
Analytical and numerical skills - an ability to analyse and solve valuation and investment problems, to handle large volumes of numerical data and extract and manipulate relevant data in a meaningful manner.

Professional/subject-specific/practical skills

Students will develop:

An understanding of accounting, investment and risk management tools and databases such as Datastream, Reuters 3000Xtra, ThomsonOne Banker, CRSP, COMPUSTAT, London Share Price Database and WRDS.
An ability to: analyse and interpret financial data (such as financial statements); and to evaluate earnings quality and firm performance through individual and collaborative projects.
An understanding of analytical and problem-solving methods through the use of techniques such as discounted cash flow analysis.

Transferable skills

These include enhanced numerical skills and fluency in spreadsheet use and the ability to communicate challenging material both orally and in writing.

Immediately after a natural disaster a critical need is for safe shelter. The aim of the programme is to develop reflective practitioners who combine understanding of practical and strategic issues of development and emergency practice with an appreciation of the wider political context in which they operate.

This is a programme that combines development, humanitarian practice and the role of the practitioner intervening in post disaster reconstruction.

Why choose this course?

This course will provide you with background knowledge to be able to understand and discuss the essential components of shelter response after a disaster. The decisions made very early on in a shelter programme have far reaching effects and can affect the subsequent success or failure of permanent housing; they can enhance or hinder the building of community resilience and its preparedness in the face of future disasters.

The course is equally valid for students with technical as well as non-technical backgrounds. There is no need to have any previous knowledge in building, construction, architecture or engineering. The course delivery is designed to be flexible to allow you to study if you are working, or between deployments, or want to study in Oxford full time. We have developed good relationships with agencies working in the shelter field, and we occasionally are able to offer students internship possibilities within these organisations.

As a student in Oxford you'll be at the heart of the UK's most successful economic region. In addition to our own excellent libraries and resource centres, you will have access to the world-renowned Bodleian Library, the Bodleian Law Library and the Radcliffe Science Library.

This course in detail

The course is organised on a modular credit system. Modules combine a ratio of taught to self-led study. For example a module of 20 credits approximates to 200 hours of student effort, up to 40 hours of which will be devoted to lectures, seminars or individual tutorials. The remainder of the time is devoted to student-led study. 60 credits are required to complete the PG Cert. Of these the core module accounts for 20 credits, while the extra 40 credits are achieved through a combination of 10 and 20 credit modules. An introduction on the first day of the programme will enable you to make a more informed choice of modules to take. The timetable is structured to minimise the likelihood that two related modules will run at the same time but clashes are not always avoidable.

The Modules on the course are:
-Shelter after Disaster (20 Credits) - core module
-Practice of Theory: Tools and Methods (20 Credits)
-Disasters, Risk, Vulnerability and Climate Change (20 Credits)
-Learning Practice Masterclass (10 Credits)
-Working with Conflict: Practical Skills and Strategies (10 Credits).

Please note: all our courses are reviewed regularly and are responsive to the needs and priorities of shelter practice. The list of modules may not be exactly as above but will be covering areas of study relevant to shelter.

Courses run by some of our partners which Brookes credit rates, can be used as credit towards this programme. RedR and IFRC courses are currently credit rated and we are working on similar partnerships. You can be exempted for up to 40 out of the 60 modules if you have taken these courses. Please get in touch with us if you would like further details

In addition to modules the programme organises many optional events, including PhD research seminars within the School of Architecture, student-led seminar series and occasional lectures. As well as the formal teaching content, the high quality of the student experience is an essential aspect of the programme. Students usually keep in touch after the course has ended via alumni links, where job opportunities are often shared. The PG Cert in Shelter after Disaster is offered as a standalone award wherein you take joint modules also available to students attending the Master's degree in Development and Emergency Practice (DEP). The programme has an average of 35-40 students, usually from over 20 countries, with a wide diversity of backgrounds. You will also benefit from interacting with a wider cohort of development and emergency practitioners.

Teaching and learning

Teaching methods on the taught part of the programme are largely class-based. Learning is driven by a mixture of lecturing, one to one and group tutorials, whole group discussion, workshop format, small group work, personal reading, individual written assignments and project design. Wherever possible the programme invites visiting practitioners from humanitarian agencies to contribute to the programme by leading sessions and commenting on student work.

The programme entails hands-on workshops with live problems, sometimes field-based, working with communities, practitioners and development agencies. The emphasis is on action methods and reflection on one’s own role as an activist and practitioner. The objective is to enable students to build both knowledge and skills more suited to the urgency and complexity of people’s changing demands and environmental conditions.

The assessment pattern reflects the programme’s learning outcomes and is intended to demonstrate that graduates possess the skills and knowledge required in practice. Coursework involves a variety of different methods of assessment, including:
-Essay and report writing
-Individual and group presentations in class
-Personal attendance and participation in class
-Case study reports

Careers and professional development

A good number of our former students have found work in the shelter sector and we are building an alumni network to help current students get in contact with organisations who work in the shelter sector.

Innovative and creative organisations lie at the heart of delivering the recovery and growth required in times of recession. Learning to manage the resources needed for successful innovation of creative services and products will be key to the success of these organisations.

The problem faced by designers is not necessarily producing novel products but how to bring them to market. Providing a robust understanding of the innovation process will help entrepreneurial designers to turn their ideas into reality.

This degree programme builds upon the internationally recognised profiles of the Loughborough Design School and the School of Business and Economics; the combined expertise of academic staff from these two schools offers a unique experience in London to develop your skills and knowledge.

You will study entrepreneurship in the context of both academic theory and self-reflection to see if you personally have the qualities to take action and make an idea happen. Intellectual property is of vital importance to the entrepreneur in creative industries and we have devoted a whole module to studying the details and practical application of this rarely studied topic.

Foresight and strategy looks to the future and considers the influence of technology on society and the impact it will have on creative organisations.

The interdisciplinary live project module will provide you with the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills such as problem solving and strategic planning whilst working together on a real business problem.

Overview

Our MSc Adult Nursing course has been designed for graduates with care experience who wish to develop a career as a registered nurse and join one of the most rewarding professions in health care. Our course will provide you with a wide range of experiences and prepare you to deliver high quality care with confidence. All of our pre-registration nursing courses are developed by nurses for nurses and will support you to work with health care teams to meet the needs of vulnerable adults requiring health care across a variety of settings. Learning and working at Masters level will support you to shape and improve your future profession and the health care experiences of patients in your care.

Adult nurses have a unique role within the healthcare setting. Making a positive change or improving the quality of people’s lives is a central tenet of this role. This may involve enabling people to improve, maintain, or recover their health, and to achieve the best possible quality of life, whatever the circumstances.

We are committed to the principles and values of the NHS Constitution (DH, 2013) and our Adult Nursing course promotes the behaviours and values that patients and staff believe to be at the heart of our NHS. These include respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives, working together for patients and the understanding that everyone counts.

The course places equal value on clinical practice and theory. It will take you from university lectures to clinical placement settings, from young to mature adults. You may well find yourself at a GP surgery, working with mulita-skilled teams in patients’ own homes or in the middle of a variety of hospital settings, from accident & emergency through to medical or surgical areas or providing compassionate care for patients with life limiting illnesses.

We’ll support you all the way. You’ll soon discover that our faculty is a stimulating place to learn, with modern facilities and registered, practising tutors who’ll make sure you’re being taught the latest techniques. We’re passionate about healthcare and dedicated to delivering the values set out by the NHS Constitution.

You’ll have the chance to share experiences and knowledge with other health care disciplines and to see how the professions work together.

Teaching on campus takes place between 9am and 7pm, Monday to Friday. On placement, you’ll be allocated to a mentor who will support your development and you’ll be expected to work the same shifts as the health care team and your mentor. Each week you will work 37.5 hours. This will include early, late and night shifts, as well as working weekends and bank holidays. Each year, five weeks’ of annual leave is built into the course at set points to support you in balancing your course and relaxation time.

Each of the two years is divided in three 30-credit modules. Each module will start with theory, followed by a hospital or community placement. A series of short Medicines Calculations modules are also embedded through the course.

Placements last around 5 weeks and will include both acute and community settings. Placement opportunities include: Older Person’s Care, Dementia Care, District Nursing, Surgical Setting, Acute Care Nursing and many more. Your final placement will be 12 weeks in length and you will also undertake additional placements each year which will enable you to explore other areas.

You’ll be linked to one of our NHS healthcare trust partners for your placements in hospitals or community settings.

If you study in Cambridge or Peterborough, you’ll do your placement in or around Cambridge, Huntingdon or Peterborough. You’ll get plenty of support from experienced mentors.

Our state of the art skills laboratories provide an ideal environment in which to learn a suite of practical skills in the safety of the university. This ensures that you gain understanding about the underpinning evidence that supports these skills, preparing you for the delivery of these skills in the practice setting.

In year 2 of the course you may choose the option to undertake an overseas placement and gain insight into another health care system.

Careers

All pre-registration nursing courses delivered by Anglia Ruskin University are approved by the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). On successful completion of the MSc Nursing course, you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the NMC and join a profession with a wide range of opportunity. You may choose to become a community professional, such as a practice nurse, or to work as a staff nurse within a hospital. With experience you could become a nursing specialist or nurse consultant. You may enjoy managing a health care team or leading a specialist team in, for example, the community setting. Nurses also undertake roles in research and education.

Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules -

- Evidence Based Knowledge and Skills for Nursing:
This first module aims to prepare students for the knowledge and skills required to deliver fundamental and safe care. A series of key strands which underpin nursing practice will be commenced in this module including: patient safety; human anatomy and physiology; health promotion and the recognition of the nurse’s role in public health; mental health and common mental health problems; leadership skills and the use of research evidence that underpins care provision. Communication and interpersonal skills will also be considered including principles of de-escalation and the importance of sound interpersonal and professional skills in practice.

- Promoting Professional Practice in Nursing:
In this module students will be supported to understand the significance of prioritising patients as central to the role of the nurse and a key component of the NMC Code (2015). Person-centred care will be addressed through the exploration of patient autonomy and patients' rights. The concepts of advocacy, raising concerns and candour will provide students with an understanding of the legal and ethical parameters that support the delivery of safe care. The module builds on knowledge of bioscience and clinical skills to further enhance delivery of safe fundamental care. Introductions to leadership, management and team working will be provided.

- Nursing Adults with Challenging Health Needs:
This module addresses the complexities of long term conditions and palliative care for adult patients. Preventing the development of long term conditions and life-threatening disease, promoting health and wellbeing and supporting adults with long term conditions to live well independently are key aspects of the nurse’s role. Effective integrated care is critical to the patient experience and students will explore the impact of national drivers from a theoretical and practice based perspective, with a focus on the use and effectiveness of care pathways. This module provides the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of the pathophysiology, pharmacology, clinical skills and ethical and legal issues to meet the challenges faced by those affected by long term and life limiting conditions.
- Medicine Calculations for Safe Practice 1

Year two, core modules -

- Ensuring the Safety of Patients Experiencing Acute Illness:
Patients become acutely unwell in clinical or home settings. This module will provide students with the knowledge, skills and experience to recognise, communicate and respond competently when a patient’s clinical condition indicates that they are becoming acutely unwell. Students will explore how psychological well-being can impact on recovery and the importance of patient focused care and empowerment. Alongside theory input students will participate in clinical scenarios around deteriorating patients (e.g. acute respiratory failure, acute coronary syndrome, and sepsis). Computer-controlled mannequins and simulation skills environments will be utilised to develop students’ skills in recognising and responding to patient deterioration.

- Decision Making, Leadership and Management in Nursing:
This theory/practice module enables students to enhance their leadership, peer coaching and decision making skills. The module aims to develop a varied and flexible repertoire of skills to be able to work effectively within multi-disciplinary teams, in the often challenging environments encountered in modern clinical practice. The module promotes students’ growth and expertise in professional knowledge and judgment, focusing on self-awareness and personal development. Development of key management skills of leadership, assertiveness, delegation and coaching will be provided as well as tools for resilience to withstand the stresses and pressures of practice.

- Major Project - MSc Nursing Adult:
This theory/practice module comprises a major project that is situated in and developed from the care setting. During the final practice placement, students will be expected to negotiate an area for service improvement to enhance the patient experience. This module will consolidate the knowledge, skills and attitudes gained in clinical management and leadership and seeks to complement these with insight to mechanisms for improving the quality of healthcare. Understanding and applying concepts of quality assurance, clinical governance, standard setting and the role of audit in maintaining standards will be key drivers.
- Medicine Calculations for Safe Practice 2
- Medicine Calculations for Safe Practice 3
