Students at SSE Library

Our education aims to foster students’ managerial and leadership skills. Key to achieving this is a mixture of theory, practice, skills and reflection. The education is built on a strong foundation of a diverse set of management and organization theories. We put these theories in practical use, through a focus on Live Learning, where students spend time in organizations dealing with real problems. Skills training is integrated into many of our courses, such as presentation skills, teamworking skills and project management skills. Finally, we aim to foster leadership skills through students’ critical reflection on their own learning.
