Learning and Teaching Methods The program incorporates a variety of learning and teaching methods including formal lectures, group discussions, group projects, online learning, practical experience and individual workplace-based projects.

Students are exposed to frameworks related to the fundamentals of management and strategy. These will form the basis for discussion and collaboration within the interactive environment of the classroom. Material will be applied directly to business situations through case studies and assessment.

As students progress through the program, they are given the opportunity to put their learning into practice with both live business-cases within classes and a compulsory internship program.
Assessment Assessment of student learning and feedback on progress are facilitated through unit assessments. Assessment tasks are aligned with learning outcomes for each unit and graduate capabilities.

All standard, 4 credit point units taught at MGSM are structured to have a standard student workload of 150 hours, including 40 hours of class interaction time allocated to a combination of group and individual assessment items, based on the learning outcomes of each unit.

The MGSM applies an annual Assurance of Learning Programme (AOL) in which students are assessed on rubrics based on the mission-driven attributes of leadership, global mindset, sustainable value and citizenship. Results are collected, disseminated and analysed, and used to inform unit and curriculum development as part of a continuous improvement process.

Students are assessed on both group and individual work in all core units. Syndicate group assessments are considered an important aspect of the collaborative learning approach taken, reflecting the typical environment encountered within a management career.

Assessment methods include:
o individual essay or report
o group project and report
o critical reflection paper
o presentation (group or individual)
o case study
o in-class test
o research project
o literature review
o client presentation
o final examination.
