WMG Post Graduate Certificate Program at YTU

The program offered is designed to develop skills in management and leadership for those with a technical background and wishing to work within technology-led industries.

The program is both challenging and rewarding. Innovative teaching methods are employed to ensure students engage practically with their studies and are well equipped on graduation to apply this to real work scenarios.

Dynamic Learning Culture
On top of theoretical learning from the academia, the program emphasises interactive learning approach.

The teaching and learning focus on group discussion and presentation, industry case study sharing, corporate project analysis and other activities to assist students in consolidating their knowledge in the fast-changing world.

WMG has strong links with industry to draw real-world insights into the teaching. Business or industry visits and lectures conducted by distinguished speakers from the industry allow students to immense themselves in the business environment and establish constructive relationship with the industrial experts and business professionals.

Assessment: Post Module Assignment (or mini project)
There are no written examinations for our Postgraduate Certificate programme, instead assessment is achieved through work based Post Module Assignments (PMA), usually in the range of 4000-5000 words, which typically requires a further 40 to 60 hours of work. Some modules can also include an in-module assessment component usually through a group work exercise.

The PMA is carefully set as an educational extension to a particular module that you attended. We believe that applying the ideas, tools and techniques learned on the programme directly into your work environment through PMAs is the best way of embedding learning in a manner that is meaningful to both you and your employer.

Learning Style
The taught component of the program is a blend of formal lectures, seminars, practical exercises, simulation games and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material.

Modules are taught in an intensive 5 days block allowing participants to be fully immersed in each subject area. Tutors are highly qualified and are supported by external speakers working at the forefront of their specialisation.
