The programme is designed to expose programme participants to the latest thinking and practice across a wide range of management disciplines. Teaching materials are derived from leading-edge academic research in order to develop critical powers of analysis and reflection, and practical and inter-personal skills in preparation for key positions in industry, commerce and the public sector. The Full-time and Part-time MBA programmes equip students with an understanding of organizations, their management, and the changing global environment in which they operate. Students build on their existing understanding of management and organization within a framework that enables them to relate their business experience to contemporary management ideas and practice. This is achieved through critical thinking, teamwork, creativity and personal development in a highly interactive and stimulating environment that encourages rigorous, relevant and innovative learning and research. It should be emphasised that the programme is an innovative three stage process in professional development with a strong international content. Coaching in personal effectiveness in the Developing Management Capabilities module supports the learning process and the development of new management and personal skills. 2

A.4 An ability to understand how global economic and technological influences shape the modern business world. A.5 An understanding of the importance of key personal skills in management and their application in areas such as leadership, communication, presentation, and decision making. A. Teaching/learning methods and strategies Each of the 13 modules provides students with an understanding of key theoretical and practical management issues, debates and literatures within the particular subject being taught. Teaching/learning methods are specific to each module as specified in the module descriptors, and will include, variously, lectures and discussions, exercises/case studies, group discussions, presentations from management practitioners, DVD materials, student presentations, field visits, and Roundtables on Managing. A.1, A.2 and A.3 are addressed in all modules. A.4 is addressed in each module but more specifically in Business Economics, Management Knowledge in the 21st Century. Examples and international comparisons are also addressed in other modules, e.g. Global Strategic Analysis and Management, The Marketing Imagination.

4 A. Assessment A.1 is assessed in all modules with the exception of Developing Management Capabilities. A.2 is assessed in all modules with the exception of Developing Management Capabilities.

There is one exception: Developing Management Capabilities, which will be assessed by how successful the students have been in identifying personal issues to be resolved and how well they understand and act on those issues. Summative assessment methods are published for each module in module handbooks. All summative written and non-written work attracts verbal or written structured feedback from tutors that is intended to enable the students to plan future improvements. This is undertaken at the end of each semester. For stage 1 modules assessed by written work, students may submit a draft for formative feedback before formal submission. Students may further discuss their progress with academic or personal tutors during scheduled office hours. B Core Academic Skills B.1.

The programme conforms to the QAA Benchmark Statement for general business and management at Master s level. The success of the Full-time and Part-time Exeter MBA relies on close and effective interaction between staff and students, and also between student and student. MBA modules are taught in a variety of ways with an emphasis on the development of personal and learning skills as well as subject knowledge. Tutorials and discussion sessions allow students to develop knowledge and skills through small group learning with the Exeter MBA team of lecturers. Academic support will be provided during the delivery of the modules to help students deal with any study difficulties. If required, the student will be referred to the Student Skills Learning Service. 5

6 14 Support for Students and Student Learning The University of Exeter Library maintains its principal collections in the main library buildings on the Streatham and St Luke s campuses, together with a number of specialist collections in certain Schools. The total Library collection comprises over a million volumes and 3000 current periodical subscriptions. Information Technology (IT) Services provide a wide range of services throughout the Exeter campuses including open access computer rooms, many of which are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. Additionally, some Schools have their own dedicated facilities. Helpdesks are maintained on the Streatham and St Luke s campuses, while most study bedrooms in halls and flats are linked to the University s campus network. It is University policy that all schools should have in place a system of academic and personal tutors for their students. A University-wide statement on such provision is included in the University s TQA Manual. Additionally, the following units at Exeter between them provide a wide range of student support services: - Student Counselling Service - Student Health Centre - Study Skills Service - Family Centre (Streatham campus) - Student Advice Centre (Guild of Students) - Chaplaincy - International Office - Foreign Language Centre - Disability Resource Centre - INTO - International Student Exchange and Support Office The University Careers Advisory service provides expert advice to all students to enable them to plan their futures, through guidance interviews, psychometric testing, employer presentations, skills events, practice job interviews and CV preparation. The School also provides this service through an Employability Officer. All Schools are required to establish Student/Staff Liaison Committees, which allow students to contribute directly to the enhancement of educational and other provision at discipline level. The School also supports the MBA Programme by subscribing to TopMBA which provides information weekly, on global positions available. Head-hunter agencies are invited to present to the cohort on CV and interview techniques. MBA students further benefit from the services of an external career advisor. Through the MBA Alumni website, current and past MBA students are able to establish networks and maintain contacts. Personal tutors provide academic monitoring and advice. The MBA Manager provides advice and pastoral care for non-academic problems such as accommodation, financial difficulties and sickness, and issues that impede a student s performance or learning experience. Each student is allocated a personal tutor drawn from the MBA teaching team. In addition, support for postgraduate MBA students University Exeter Business School includes: A dedicated programme director A dedicated programme manager A programme-dedicated student handbook (c.50 pages) includes inter alia registration and induction, general information on School and University facilities and services (e.g. library, IT, fax, photocopying), health and safety, communicating with School staff, illness and absence, special needs, details of the degree programme and its modules (module templates, examinations, assessment methods etc.), School Code of Good Practice in Teaching and Learning, University postgraduate assessment procedures (examination conventions), complaints and appeals procedures, and guidance on examination preparation, group work, essay writing, referencing, cheating and plagiarism.

Alternative entry through extensive work experience (6 years or more in a middle to senior management position) and/or professional qualifications. Overseas students: Overseas students must show proficiency in the English language and have an appropriate qualification: Certificate of Proficiency in English of the Cambridge Local Examinations Grade B or above IELTS 7.00 TOEFL 250 ibt TOEFL Widening participation The programme is committed to widening participation and welcomes applications from students with non-standard qualifications who have relevant job experience. 16 Regulation of Assessment and Academic Standards Each academic programme in the University is subject to an agreed School assessment marking strategy, underpinned by institution-wide assessment procedures. Condonement may be applied for modules to a maximum of 36 credits where the overall credit weighted mean is at least 50% (including the marks for any failed modules) and the failed modules to be condoned have not been listed in the programme specification as being excluded from the condonement process. The maintenance of assessment and academic standards is further supported through the external examiners appointed for each module. Their responsibilities are described in the University s code for external examiners and include approving draft examination papers, course work and examination scripts. Attendance at the Board of Examiners and the provision of an annual report are both required. Clear procedures are also in place for the monitoring of these annual reports at both School and University level. See the University s TQA Manual for details of these processes: (http://www.ex.ac.uk/admin/academic/tls/tqa/) 7

8 17 Indicators of Quality and Standards The University and its constituent Schools draw on a range of data in their regular review of the quality of provision. The annually published Performance Indicator Dataset details admission, progression, completion and first career destination data, including comparisons over a five-year time span. The programme is accredited by the Association of MBAs on a four year cycle. 18 Methods for Evaluating and Improving Quality and Standards The University has procedures in place for the regular review of its educational provision, including the annual review of both modules and programmes which draws on feedback from such sources as external examiners' reports, student evaluation, student achievement and progression data. In addition, subject areas are reviewed every three years through a subject and programme quality review scheme that includes external input. These procedures are recorded in codes of practice contained in the TQA Manual. Certain programmes are also subject to review and/or accreditation by professional and statutory bodies, while nearly all subject areas are reviewed from time to time by the national Quality Assurance Agency for HE; see the QAA web site for review reports on subjects at Exeter. In order to maintain our AMBA accreditation we need to submit a Self-audit document together with a panel visit consisting of Academics from other accredited MBA programmes throughout the UK on a four year cycle.
