The Swansea Business School at University of Wales Trinity Saint David used to be known as Swansea Metropolitan University until a 2013 name change. Making a point to differentiate itself from other schools, the school bases its instruction on case studies of actual concerns as opposed to theoretical concepts.
The reason for this approach is so that the students will be able to move quickly into their chosen profession with more awareness of the potential pitfalls that might be lurking. Some of this is obtained through the internships that students undertake as part of the curriculum.
The school educates undergraduates, those pursuing a one-year integrated Masters degree, postgraduate candidates and professionals taking classes in conjunction with their job. A Master of Business is available in four different areas: Finance, Human Resource Management, Management and Marketing.
Among the postgraduate programs are MBA trajectories that can be achieved either in the classroom or online. In addition, Master of Science degrees in both Financial Management along with Trading and Financial Markets, while professionals earn a certificate or diploma upon completion of their program.
