There is considerable variety in the teaching methods used on the programme. These include lectures and discussion sessions, groupwork, case studies, presentations and workshops on the use of statistical packages. You will have opportunities to make presentations and to work on a variety of group tasks, both assessed and non-assessed.
The style of teaching is often highly interactive, so you will be expected to contribute actively to class discussion and to engage in groupwork with students from many different backgrounds. For some of the modules you will be joining students from other Economics or Accounting and Finance programmes. This enables you to exchange ideas and benefit from the range of work experience and knowledge represented within the classroom.
The hub space in the School's new Leadership Centre offers ideal space for groupwork, and is fully wireless-enabled. The Centre also has state-of-the-art lecture theatres for use on postgraduate programmes.
The Economics Department has its own well-equipped computer room which you can use in addition to the other PC labs. The MSc teaching rooms have audio-visual facilities.
