Supported Study

On the EMBA programme, you learn and apply your knowledge many different ways, through a blend of face-to-face teaching and online learning.

During the workshops there will be a mix of formal lecture input, case studies and exercises, all involving much debate and discussion between group members.

The EMBA virtual learning environment (VLE) and internet-enabled conferencing facilities are used extensively to allow the debate and exchange of ideas to continue beyond the formal modules. Via the VLE you will also receive materials to read before each module to give you a head-start in absorbing the concepts you will encounter.

Online subject clinics

After each taught module an online and face-to-face subject clinic hosted by the module tutor provides opportunities to ask further questions, follow up areas of interest, and discuss emerging ideas with your fellow students. The clinics are also an important way to get guidance on scoping and shaping the work for your related coursework assignments.

Learning resources

The University library, with its extensive resources of print-based and online materials, will be a crucial part of your study and research process - and not only while you are at Lancaster. You will be able to access the library catalogue and the key management databases remotely, and there are specialist management librarians to help you make the best possible use of these resources.

Presentation skills

Assessment in some modules involves presentations, and for those who would like to work on their presentation skills, we also provide opportunities to do so both within the programme itself and via optional workshops in the MBA Career Advancement programme, which is open to both full-time and EMBA students.
