Students are put into teams of four to six people prior to their arrival for Induction Week. For the first year of the programme, all team project work for core modules is completed in syndicate teams, on projects ranging from Marketing to Economics. The groups collaborate to produce reports and presentations.

Students are primarily grouped together based on time zones. In addition to that, we aim to achieve a good mix of employment background, experience, gender and nationality.

You’ll meet for the first time during Induction Week, where you’ll work together on a number of activities designed to help you get to know each other and how you work together. Sessions from professional coaches at the Careers and Professional Development Service give syndicate teams the tools to handle group dynamics and the skills to make online networking a success.

An essential part of Global Online MBA life is syndicate groups; as you would expect, diversity rules in this case as well. My colleagues come from the services, healthcare, NGO and oil & gas industries. We all take a different view on problems and business cases we are faced with as part of our curriculum; and there is always something to learn, something to give and something to take.
