“Professionals can upskill mid-career,

world.”

A global classroom of experienced professionals

The online programmes offer unique opportunities that campus programmes find hard to replicate:

The programmes’ flexibility makes them more suitable for professionals who are mid-career and unable to take a career break to study

The average age and level of experience of our students is higher than many equivalent campus programmes, leading to an enriched classroom experience

Students come from over 160 different countries, lending the classroom a distinctly global perspec- tive and exposing you to a wide range of interna- tional experiences.

Practical, applicable knowledge

The combination and range of the core and elective modules, means that students can personalise their degree to acquire knowledge that is immediately valuable to them, their organisation, and their ca- reer. While a theoretical foundation for learning is provided, the focus on practical application allows for the immediate implementation of knowledge and skill in the working environment. By discussing work issues with fellow professionals in the global classroom, students can learn new approaches that can solve today’s problems. The interactive learn- ing method means programme content is always evolving to meet ‘live’ industry issues.

Accreditation

The University of Liverpool meets or exceeds all academic quality standards for UK higher education as de- fined by The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
