You can really focus on what you want, rather than having to go through a set schema that might not be right for you.”  Kyle Lovell What you'll study In your first year, you'll explore ethics, logic, and philosophical reading and writing. You'll discover the changing international business environment or contemporary management concepts, and develop your skills in data analysis, modelling and decision making. In your second and final years you'll explore operations management and strategy and might also focus on the management of people and projects, explore how we use language, or focus in depth on metaphysics, ethics, feminist philosophy or politics. See the modules you'll studyPhilosophy

Some modules have lectures, some have seminars, and all have class discussions. Some promote ‘student active’ learning techniques which encourage you to work on individual or group research, and present your findings to the rest of the class.

Assessment of philosophy modules is by essays, in-class assignments, seminar participation or tests, or a combination of these methods.


We use a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, case-study analysis, group projects and presentations, and problem-based learning scenarios and management simulations. Assessment is by a mixture of coursework and written examinations.
