Learning & teaching
You will experience a range of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, group-working, case studies and both individual and group presentations. Traditional teaching is supported by a virtual learning environment that is used to host a range of electronic supporting materials.
You will be assessed through a mixture of examinations and coursework. The taught element of the course is then complemented by a substantial piece of research leading to the completion of a dissertation.
Modules taught on this MSc will enable you to develop a wide range of technical and transferable skills demanded by graduate employers in addition to knowledge and understanding of service delivery and innovation.
You will have the opportunity to learn through case studies, industry guest speakers, projects with industry partners. There is also a strong link with the Aston Centre for Servitization research and Practice as most of the teaching staff is actively engaged with the centre activities.
