Is distance learning right for me?

Distance learning can be highly beneficial to a large variety of people.


With courses being delivered at different levels, distance learning can meet the needs of a diverse student
body. High competition for jobs means having additional training and education can be a real advantage,
whether someone is in the market for a new career or simply wants to progress in their existing position.

Like any kind of educational programme, distance learning comes with advantages and disadvantages, and
it is always important that a student carefully considers these in order to be sure they will be getting the
education that meets personal needs, strengths, career goals and maybe corporate objectives.

BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION PROJECT


This module provides students with a means of further developing
the skills and knowledge gained on the original Diploma and during
the MBA, by application to a specific organisational issue or problem. It
enables students to demonstrate proficiency in the design of a business
enhancement project, application of appropriate methods of investigation,
management of the change process, and maintenance of leadership and
vision in the face of the vicissitudes of business realities.
Whilst there is no set syllabus, the MBA business transformation project
provides students with the opportunity to study and research a specific
organisation area/topic in depth. The main focus of this, however, is not
as a pure piece of research, but as a piece of action research where an
organisation or industry directly benefits from the planned intervention
of the student using appropriate methods of research and change
management.
