Classroom
Experience

Diverse study groups

You will initially join a study group of five to six students, selected to maximise diversity in terms of age, gender, nationality, experience, previous education and professional background.

During most of the core courses and the PLDP, your group will become the focal point for your work as you complete assignments and solve problems together.

Lively classroom exchange

In the classroom, Union’s professors aim to bring out the best in each of you, so that you learn from each other’s experiences as well as from their own cutting-edge research.

Their objective is to examine different perspectives in order to orchestrate a multi-faceted debate and challenge everyone’s assumptions.

Multiple teaching methods

There is no single preferred teaching method at the Union. Our faculty is free to choose the method they believe fits best with the content of the session.

You will, therefore, experience a wide variety of teaching styles and techniques, including case studies, computer simulations, role-plays, project work and study tours.

What matters to Union is not the method chosen but the result: the effectiveness of your learning experience.

An Inside Look at How Life Unfolds at Masters' Union

Frequently Asked
Questions

No two days are the same at Masters' Union given the dynamic nature of the program. However, typically there are two to three 2-hour long classes scheduled from Monday to Thursday. Students are required to complete their assignments and group projects, attend career counselling sessions and other extra-curricular activities from Friday to Sunday.

Masters' Union gives you a chance to construct a tailor-made PGP TBM programme that fits your personal and career goals. You are free to pursue a generalist path towards management or specialise in a particular industry concentration. However, regardless of the path you decide to take during your elective period, everybody graduates with the same general PGP diploma.

Final course grades for most classes will be determined by a mix of class participation, projects and exams. For exams, Masters' Union grades on a Standard Normal Curve, also called a Z-Curve, with a mean of 3.0. There are no forced-to-fails. To graduate, participants must maintain a mean grade of 2.1 in core courses and electives.

No. Masters' Union adheres to a strict non-disclosure policy. Your grades will never be shared with recruiters, classmates or anyone outside of the Union's community. During on-campus interviews, recruiters are not permitted to ask about your grades, and you need not volunteer them. This policy allows you the freedom to challenge yourself and enhance the breadth of your knowledge by taking electives in unfamiliar subject areas without worrying that your grades will influence your job prospects.

The extra time taken at Masters’ Union helps you learn about setting priorities and make better choices about learning, socialising and personal time from the very beginning of the programme. This will make you an expert at decision making, which is one of the most valued qualities in a business leader.
