This bespoke programme has been developed for Aggregate Industries to meet the needs of managers across the industry. This is a fully integrated postgraduate programme allowing delegates to progress from Diploma to MSc.
The postgraduate programme in Management and Leadership (Aggregate Industries) is specifically designed for experienced managers in Aggregate Industries seeking to develop practical skills whilst working towards a recognised university award.
The course covers a wide range of areas, including finance, marketing, leadership and managing people. At each stage of the programme you will be asked to draw on your work experience and to apply your learning within your own organisational context: - Learning objectives will reflect the needs of today’s business environment, developing skills and knowledge immediately relevant to you and your workplace. - Programme assessments require delegates to relate each topic to their experience, thereby developing skills in practically relevant ways.
Throughout the programme both student and organisation will benefit from a demonstrable return on investment back in the workplace.
In response to the needs of busy managers, the programme is offered on a part-time basis. The minimum period of study for the award of MSc is thirty calendar months. The minimum period of study for the award of Postgraduate Diploma is eighteen months.
Modules are taught as 2-day or 4-day workshops scheduled in consultation with our client.
Learning methods are tailored to meet participants’ needs, including a combination of: - short inputs - pair and group work - case studies - distance learning - work-based assignments and projects
The MSc element of the programme will be over a 12 month period and will require delegates to attend an initial taught session covering research methods and project design which is delivered at Loughborough University. Participants will then be expected to design, implement and write-up a research project exploring a topic of their own choice.
There are no exams for this programme.
Each module is assessed through coursework which may include in-class group presentations, in-class tests and individual coursework assignments. Our coursework assignments require the student to read and research the topic of the module to address a question that is based within a work environment. All modules require the student to draw on their own work experience and/or their current work situation.
Each programme starts with an induction event where participants will review and improve their learning, researching and writing skills. Following this, the modules address the fundamentals of management and business competitiveness.
The content of assessments addresses real work examples within past and current experience.
For the MSc project a topic to address a problem directly impacting on the participant’s work area is agreed with the University and the employer. An integral part of that project will be the requirement to demonstrate the benefits to the organisation and to the participant’s own learning.
