As a distance learning student, you will probably be combining the challenge of study with the demands of work and family life. Our masters programmes are designed to provide you with the flexibility to balance these demands, whilst giving you clear milestones against which you can measure your progress through the programme. If you have to travel a lot, or if you relocate during the course of your studies, that’s not a problem – our programmes are designed to be studied any time, anywhere. With multiple start dates per year, you’ll benefit from flexibility that allows you to start the programme at a time that suits you.
Learning Support
Learning support at the Univeristy of LeicesterIndependent study is central to distance learning but support is always close at hand. Depending on your geographical location, you will be supported directly by the School of Management distance learning team or through a local resource centre run by our network of specialist, experienced Agency Partners. Wherever you are based and however you are supported, you’ll have access to a comprehensive set of study materials in paper-based and online formats. Group and individual support is provided online through the School of Management’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard, and comprehensive learning resources can be accessed from the Leicester Digital Library. All you need is internet access and you can study your programme from anywhere. We recognise, however, that nothing can beat face-to-face interaction and this is provided too, through our annual residential summer school and faculty visits and, depending on your geographical location, local tutorial support.
Career Progression
Studying by distance learning with us can provide you with the foundation to break into a management career, to gain promotion with your current employer, change career direction, or simply help you to be more effective in your current role. Combining studying with your work enables you to put into practice the concepts and techniques acquired on the programme immediately and to draw on your professional experience when completing your assessed work.
Our Unique Approach to Management Studies
Lady studying at University of LeicesterOur vibrant group of scholars in accounting, finance, marketing, management and organisation studies have developed a distinctive intellectual profile for the School which emphasises the centrality of ongoing, ethically informed, critical reflection in the delivery of meaningful managerial research and sustainable management practice. We share an intellectual conviction that organising is a highly complex historical phenomenon and that management is best understood in an inter-disciplinary context, drawing from the disciplines of sociology, politics, philosophy and economics as well as from developments in critical psychology, cultural geography, cultural studies and organisational theory.
