Applied learning

To be a successful leader, you need to understand, implement and integrate the current fundamental concepts of facilities management and business, and have insights from differing professional perspectives. You gain this knowledge by studying four modules on facilities management and also core MBA subjects. These modules are integrated meaning that instead of studying finance or globalisation in isolation, you study finance together with globalisation, marketing and decision-making. Our approach replicates the real world where strategic decisions will span multiple business areas, providing you with a richer and more realistic learning experience.

At the diploma stage of the course, you have the opportunity to complete psychometric tests, which can help you increase your critical self-awareness, better understand your leadership skills and identify areas for development. Additionally, you have the opportunity to work on a consultancy project that involves investigating a real issue within your own organisation, or one with which you are familiar.

Over the course, we tailor assignments and projects to the needs of your organisation or your own areas of interest, which maximises the value of your studies. Your organisation also has the opportunity to provide input into your learning and contribute to your development.
