Assessment

All modules have an assessment system led by the head of each module and verified externally by an assessor, in order to ensure a fair and objective evaluation. All assessments are criterion referenced and based on the "Learning Outcomes" of each module.

In order to be approved in a Diploma (and therefore progress to the next one), students must successfully complete all modules.

Assessment methods may vary between individual and group presentations, reports and written essays, posters, discussions and debates.

Field Trips

Throughout the course field trips will take place depending on the module in question. These will allow students a closer contact with the reality of business and the various sectors of the industry. A T&H Management School Coordinator will always lead these field trips.

Every year, a one-week tour to one country in the European Union will take place and will focus on a specific area of the industry. This optional tour, on the one hand, will foster a closer contact amongst students and between students and teachers and, on the other, enable the possibility of a further analysis of a particular activity sector.

Research

The T&H Management School has an internal research department, where students and teachers can join existing teams and collaborate on the development of knowledge for certain areas of management.

The T & H Management School supports the development of new projects and the sought-after links with national and international business. Therefore, the T & H Management School will grant every year a number of scholarships to students who, in the previous year, are considered to have reached an exceptional achievement and who wish to join the research team, alongside the continuation of their studies.

International Option - London

All of T & H Management School's three-year courses may be attended in the international system option. In this system, students may attend the second semester of their respective courses on our campus in London. Modules and content as well as assessment will be exactly the same as for students who opt for the national version. The major advantage of this international option is to allow students the experience of a multicultural city, where they can benefit from the study visits and exclusive contacts unique to this campus. The costs associated with this option are limited to the cost of air travel and accommodation.

Internships

The T & H Management School has developed protocols with organisations within the industry and can annually promote the provision of short-term placements at companies, in order to improve students' knowledge and promote the link to corporate reality. The internships are unpaid and are always coordinated by a T & H Management School’s Academic Head along with the granter company, aiming at enriching the students’ knowledge.

Top Up – Coventry University

By successfully completing the Advanced Diploma in Business Management, The T & H Management School's students attain the Diploma in Business Management from OTHM Qualifications. This diploma allows students to top up their studies and complete a Bachelor's (Hons) degree in Global Business at Coventry University, UK.
