Today I'm in Glasow, as External Examiner on the Management Development Programme of the University of Strathclyde's Business School. This is an interesting programme with modules in the first 3 years for all undergraduate students in the business school. It covers key areas such as teamworking, problem solving, information handling, business ethics, leadership, and it is delivered in a problem solving approach. Students work in teams, there are few large plenary sessions and there is a variety of coursework: learning diaries, presentations, online statistics tests etc. There are over 500 students taking it in each year. The site for the programme is here. An article about it is:
