Northumbria University, Newcastle Business School

Introduction

Newcastle Business School -- Who We Are

Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle Business School is one of the largest Schools within Northumbria University. Our roots go back over 50 years, and we adopted our current name in 1989. Since then, as one of the longest established UK business schools, we have been inspiring excellence in organisations and individuals across the globe.

With a student population of 3,800 and a further 2,200 students studying at our partner institutions overseas, we are a truly international business school. This wide ranging international presence opens up exciting career opportunities for our students, as our graduates emerge as business-ready and highly employable, wherever in the world they wish to live and work.

Our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes are delivered by highly qualified and experienced academic staff who are actively engaged in research, consultancy and development activities with leading organisations. Newcastle Business School is run by a team of dedicated staff including teaching staff, administrators and researchers plus part-time and adjunct lecturers.

Newcastle Business School delivers first class teaching in a world class environment, as 2007 saw the opening of our brand new £70 million iconic state-of-the-art development in the heart of Newcastle City Centre. Known as 'City Campus East', this futuristic development comprises 24,000 square metres of purpose designed academic accommodation at the cutting edge of design and technology.

The new world class centre for learning will further develop the reputation and quality of our programmes and services, and offer students, staff and businesses alike the chance to access state-of-the-art facilities.

Labelled as, "one of the most exciting new estate developments in the sector" by the Times Higher Education Supplement, the stunning new City Campus East has received high acclaim, having been named as the North East Landmark of The Year 2007. The awards highlight regional building excellence and reward developments that highlight the best in concept design and construction.

As well as the innovative interior, the exterior of the buildings also plays a major part in the new landmark status as they are illuminated each night, providing a stunning addition to the city's skyline.

Professor Paul Croney is the current Dean of Newcastle Business School, a position he was appointed to in 2003. He is responsible for the leadership and general management of a £21 million business school with 200 staff and 6000 students.

Newcastle Business School -- What We Do

Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK.

Our size, infrastructure and resources enable us to offer an unprecedented range of programmes which are designed to deliver the relevant, cutting edge skills that are essential for the business leaders of today and to prepare tomorrow's leaders for a successful future. We offer programmes at every level of business education - undergraduate, postgraduate, post experience and doctoral.

At Newcastle Business School, we don't just teach business: We work in partnership with regional, national and international institutions to deliver a broad range of business services from bespoke management education through to research and consultancy.

Through working with businesses as well as teaching the subject, we understand the complexities and dynamics of the business world and the challenges that arise. This knowledge is then delivered in our programmes to show participants how to apply theory to real and exciting challenges.

Our practical and innovative approach to teaching has earned national and international respect. Newcastle Business School produces 'work-ready' graduates, and employers know that Newcastle Business School graduates can make a positive and lasting contribution to their business.

Everything we do at Newcastle Business School has a strong international focus. With 20 years experience of delivering international programmes, our students are given unparalleled opportunities to experience business within an international context. We enjoy established links with leading business schools and organisations all over the world.

Our programmes are delivered in countries as diverse as France, Russia and Singapore, Germany and Hong Kong, Holland, India and Malaysia. But we don't just teach international business, we recognise that international exposure, international culture and international experience are all part and parcel of the multiplicity of the provision at Newcastle Business School.

Applied Business with Hospitality and Tourism Management - MSc

 

This is a new suite of programmes from Newcastle Business School and is presently only offered with a September start. The duration of the course is approximately 20 months. Students follow the first two taught semesters of the corresponding MSc Business with Management programme.Students then transfer to a full-time and salaried work placement instead of the dissertation stage. The placement will last for around 8 months (students are available for employment from early June in the year after they begin the course to January in the following year). This is followed by a work based project equivalent to the postgraduate dissertation and involving academic research but based around the work undertaken during the placement.Newcastle Business School cannot guarantee that every student will be able to be placed as the decision ultimately rest with the employers - however we have a very well established Placements Unit within the school with an extensive network of business partners and we are confident that this, combined with a rigorous selection policy means that the chances of successful placement are very high. Students who are unable to find an appropriate placement can transfer to the traditional version of the course and complete a dissertation.This innovative programme allows students to gain valuable work experience incorporated in their postgraduate degree and have a real business experience in which they can apply, expand, and reflect on the learning from the course.Applicants will, in addition to the normal entry criteria for general postgraduate programmes, be required to demonstrate high levels of English language competence (minimum IELTS 7.0 or equivalent unless all of their undergraduate degree is taught and assessed in English) and in addition must have a face-to-face interview with a member of staff from Newcastle Business School or the University's International Office. Places are extremely limited as this programme is rolled out.Although the tuition fee for this programme is higher than for the standard course (to cover the operational costs of the Placement Unit and to cover the cost of a member of academic staff making at least one visit during the placement period) it is envisaged that the salary paid by the company should more than cover the additional fee and living costs....

Next Generation Management Thinking & PracticeThis exciting and groundbreaking postgraduate course combines the strengths of design, business and technology to create management thinking, innovation and practice for the next generation.Working in multi-disciplinary teams on projects sponsored by leading international companies, you will gain invaluable experience in defining and resolving complex issues in new, exciting and innovative ways.Why study Multidisciplinary Design Innovation?Business Week’s Bruce Nussbaum says that ' Innovation, design and technology are all flowing into one another to form a single river of roaring change radically altering our culture, and especially our business culture.'A revolution is taking place within design as it emerges from it’s traditional role of serving commerce to leading, shaping and directing the way we live, work and behave. This shift is leading organisations to recognise the importance of 'Design-Thinking' in business strategy; the need to apply creative capability and advanced innovation in new product, service and business development to achieve competitive advantage.Commisioned by Gordon Brown PM, Sir George Cox, author of The Cox Review of Creativity in Business, notes: “One of the challenges is to get business people, engineers, technologists and designers to understand one another better and to speak the same language.” This programme is all about developing Masters graduates who have a deep knowledge of their core discipline and a broad outlook and confidence in complementary ones so that they become expert interfacers, influencers and innovators.What will this course include?You will work with a multi-disciplinary cohort of students with backgrounds in design, engineering and business. You will be given the freedom and tools to explore and experiment with ideas using your core knowledge and experience together with that of your peers as a starting point for understanding the role that you can play in innovation. You will leave behind ‘safe solutions’ and actively seek out innovative and creative new concepts and ideas to solve industry identified problems.In this programme, designers will design, engineers will engineer and business people will do business. They will build upon their core knowledge and experience working together defining and solving problems posed to them by industry. Through working together they will learn about the values and practices of the complimentary disciplines and how to engage with them in a common pursuit.Using the full spectrum of methods and practices of the multidisciplinary group, your projects may involve activities as diverse as role-play and finite element analysis, cash-flow forecasting and building prototypes using cardboard and string, brand strategy and story-telling, film-making and writing computer code; whatever it takes to uncover, develop and explain new ideas!The programme structure and assessment strategy are designed to encourage experimentation, trial and error and creative risk-taking in pursuit of a deeper knowledge of how to use creativity in a business innovation context.Who will you learn from?You will learn from each other sharing your expertise with each other whilst building exciting foundations of research and exploration. You'll have at your fingertips some of the most creative, strategic and inquisitive minds and talent of your generation; you being one of them. You'll take knowledge and guidence from the academic staff of the three schools who have the perfect blend of industry experience and education know-how.Alongside this you'll absorb the knowledge and expertise of both national and international organisations that not only recognise the importance of bringing a creativity led approach to their specialist area but also understand the importance of the multidisciplinary approach to achieve this. These organisations will value your input so much that they are prepared to fund your exploration and assign staff to engage in the process and share their knowledge with you.... [-]
