    Modules on Corporate Project Management I & II requires industry engagement

    The Mobility Semester-

    It is an option for students which enables students to have an in-depth industrial application of knowledge gained in the study. Alternatively, students can gain qualifications and extended language competences at a foreign university of a students’ choice. Out of 30 credit modules for the mobility semester ,15 credits correspond to the course of study as agreed between the academic advisor and student.

    The lowest period eligible for recognition of mobility semester is six weeks. At least 12 consecutive weeks must be completed within one or several enterprises is possible. A total of 30 credits will be awarded. The semester is run in line with the learning agreement concluded between the students and the supervisor

    Seminars –

    A session led by an academic member of staff where students, individually or in groups, will be engaged in discussions of the implication and application of lecture material through the use of case studies, directed reading, journal articles and presentations.

    Example workshops –

    A session led by an academic member of staff or outside speaker, where students, individually or in groups will be working through examples, many of which will be numerical and practically oriented, to see the application of lecture material, and to extend and practise demonstrated techniques. Mandatory visits to local Logistics companies will enhance experiential learning.

    Guest speakers from the Logistics industry-

    Practitioners, stakeholders, and interest groups with specialist skills and experience will be invited to participate in the teaching of the programme, to illustrate the practical nature of subjects being studies, application of theories, and to provide case study material, practitioner insights, or alternative perspectives. The inclusion of outside speakers within the main programme will be prioritised given the practitioner orientation of the course.

    Student-centred learning –

    For all modules, students will be required to engage in active learning through the use of guided reading, practical examples, case studies, additional materials, and online learning.

    Directed Reading –

    Students will be required to engage in critical debate through directed reading outside lectures and seminars. Students will be directed to reading by academic members of staff and will be encouraged to engage in additional self-directed reading to provide a depth and breadth of understanding of key concepts and principles, theories, and contemporary debates.

    Case studies–

    The programme will draw extensively from existing and previous case studies, to learn from good and bad practice, to illuminate the competing demands and challenges that practitioners face, and to develop problem-solving skills of students.

    Group work –

    Students will participate in group work, both formatively in class and also as part of summative assessment. Many of the students are expected to be working in the logistics and air management industry at senior management and junior technical roles, and role play will be a key feature of group work.

    Reflection –

    Students will be required to reflect in- and on- action, as a means of reviewing individual skill development and to plan for continued learning.

    Students will provide reflective accounts of learning and development as part of the assessment for the programme, and encouraged in modules to consider the application of new skills and experiences, as a means of developing critical appraisal, reflection, and problem-solving skills needed in practice. Students working in the field (or with prior professional experience) will be encouraged to reflect on the experiences of work.

    Fieldwork –

    The programme will incorporate fieldwork and industrial visits to illuminate the real-life nature of the discipline, to provide case study material, and for students to consider the application of conceptual material to real-life situations.
