Case studies are a teaching and learning strategy, which are employed in a range of modules: they are useful assessment tools. Students are presented with real or simulated complex business situations which they are required to analyse in details and then present their own solutions in writing and orally.

Students are expected to take greater responsibilities for their own learning as they progress through their programmes. The student-centred approach will be encouraged through the use of specific teaching strategies; case studies; projects and practical exercises (if applicable), supplemented by the use of appropriate support materials; etc. Having successfully completed the programme at year 4, students will be awarded with the BA (Hons) Degree by the University of Sunderland, UK.
