Learning and teaching

You will learn through a series of teaching and learning activities and assessment methods designed to advance your theoretical grounding in the discipline as well as your ability to function more effectively in a work environment. For example, during the programme, you will present some of your work in class, work together in teams to produce a business proposal, etc.
