About

The Business Administration (Online) course offered by Durham University  is structured around six core modules, plus a compulsory research methods module, with a further five elective module choices. 

Overview

The Business Administration (Online) course is offered by Durham University.

Residential modules involve four days of intensive lecture-based study, led by the module leader and supported by a course textbook and access to lecture materials on the virtual learning environment. 

The programme

Distance learning modules are delivered using specially written and recorded resources produced under the supervision of the module leader; students also benefit from access to a tutor throughout each module. The role of the tutor is to provide support at a distance (generally by email, but also by telephone or group discussion boards if appropriate) by providing feedback on formative assignments and being available for consultation and advice. Tutor support and feedback to the students is monitored by the module leader(s) responsible for overseeing module content, structure and delivery.

Students choosing either taught or distance learning routes also benefit from a virtual classroom experience in the form of live webinar sessions led by either the module leader or tutor for the module. This provides an opportunity for smaller groups of students to discuss and debate issues based on knowledge gained through lectures and independent study outside the programme’s formal contact hours.

In either route, lectures and learning resources provide key information on a particular topic, and identify main areas for discussion and debate within current managerial thinking. Students are further supported in writing their dissertation through the study of research methods, and through contact with an allocated supervisor. The role of the supervisor is to provide guidance in the formulation of the research methods and advice in its analysis and presentation as well as helping to inform the academic research process.
