15 and 24 month programmes will also include the Professional Field Experience module - which required students to participate in a self-organised internship, social innovation project or global professional experience that entails a minimum of 30 hours of work.

Note: All modules are subject to change in order to keep content current.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching is delivered through a mix of formal lectures, more informal seminars, tutorials, workshops, discussions and e-learning packages. A number of modules use in-course situations to encourage deeper learning and develop on-the-job skills of future managers and entrepreneurs. Assessment is usually through a combination of individual and group work, presentations, elevator pitches, essays, reports and exams.

Teaching contact hours

This is a full-time course so you should be prepared to devote approximately 38 hours a week to your studies. You will typically have up to 14 hours contact hours of teaching most weeks for semester 1 and 2. Teaching is through a mix of lecturers, tutorials, seminars and lab sessions and the breakdown of these activities is shown in each module description.

In addition each module provides a 2 hour surgery each week available for individual consultation with the lecturer. You may also have some scheduled meetings with your programme leader, personal tutor, and/or careers throughout the year to discuss your academic progress and personal development.

Self-directed study: In order to prepare for, and assimilate, the work in lectures and seminars you will be expected to make regular use of our on-line resources, participate in classroom discussions including on our virtual learning environment (VLE) and engage in personal study, revision and reflection for approximately 24 hours per work during semester 1 and 2

In semester 3, you will undertake independent research for your Entrepreneurship Project or Executive Company Project. You will be allocated a dedicated academic supervisor to support you, who you will be able to contact on a regular basis.

Facilities and features

Leicester Castle

The programme is based in the Great Hall of what was once Leicester Castle. Originally built in approximately 1150, and then extensively rebuilt in approximately 1523, the Great Hall is currently undergoing an extensive restoration project. Based in Leicester’s historical Castle Quarter adjacent to the university, the Great Hall will provide a prestigious and inspirational setting for students who have the passion and talent to change the business world.

Students will also be taught in the Hugh Aston Building, which was purpose-built at a cost of £35 million. Facilities include break-out spaces for group work; quiet study zones for individual work, high-spec IT labs, a bookshop and a café. Learning will be supported by access to DMU’s excellent facilities.

Library services

We have 1,500 study places and 650 computer workstations across four sites on campus. These give access to more than half a million publications, an extensive range of DVDs, e-resources and thousands of electronic journals. 

The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).

Award-winning staff are on hand to help and there is a café for study breaks. We offer a range of workshops, drop-in and one-to-one sessions, and our Just Ask service provides email and telephone support.

Learning zones

Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.

Originally set up in our main Kimberlin Library, the learning zones proved so popular that more were created in the Eric Wood Building and Greenhouse. These flexible spaces are ideal whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.

They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with interactive whiteboards and DVD players. Eduroam wi-fi is available across all campus locations.
