Flexible learning programmes for all your team

A vast range of learning opportunities are available by taking individual modules from our collaboration with Ulster University Business School. Focus on specific skills or knowledge gaps and establish a platform of study skills that can be built upon at a later date.

Strategic stretch and challenge – opportunities from the BSc Honours year

  • Assessing and Planning the Future – understand corporate strategy, what it is and why it is important

  • Managing in Practice – a bespoke independent learning pathway or research project

Learning opportunities that blend the best of academic and business worlds

  • Students complete assignments to University standard and receive support from  tutors. They can receive a script of achievement and may continue studies later to complete a qualification, which requires the completion of several modules, not just one
  • Individual modules require time commitment over a shorter period than a full 6 or 12 month university development programme. They relate to a specific set of learning outcomes and introduce these learning opportunities at a lower cost per individual
  • Most modules can be undertaken in your own time or at work, using digital content and skype-style tutorials. A few are workshop-based, requiring travel
  • Many students find it beneficial to use regular member events for networking & engagement, if places can be allocated to them to support this. They can join online discussion groups, buddy individually or access group mentoring support
  • The range of opportunity covers topics for almost every role and the lower cost makes it possible for you to offer development to all your team, a small cost in comparison to salary budgets
