What are lectures like at Pearson Business School?

At Pearson Business School, we do things differently. Studying in the heart of a FTSE 100 company means our students are immersed in business from day one. We know that learning is important outside of the classroom as it is inside and that’s why our lectures are delivered by industry professionals and leading academics.

We want the content our students learn to be relevant and applicable to the real world of business. Our students get the opportunity to apply the knowledge they learn during their lectures in interactive seminars, workshops and industry events. This ensures that our students are equipped with transferable skills for when they graduate.

This week I had the chance to give a lecture on digital marketing and social media. At the beginning of the lecture I asked the students what they already knew about digital marketing and social media. They're in their second year and it turns out that they know quite a bit. In fact, I had worked with this particular group of students in their first year and it was refreshing to hear how much they've learned/grown

At Pearson College London we recognise that students learn in a variety of ways.  Because of this it's crucial to us that we offer many different opportunities to gain knowledge. This comes in the traditional format of lectures and seminars but we also teach through a blended approach. For instance, you can attend lectures virtually, online or even watch them back at a later date. This means that you'll always be able to rewind and re-watch any aspects that you might not have understood the first time around. As well as the traditional, didactic approach we also teach experientially. This is crucial to us as we believe that many people learn through doing and by taking part. You'll play an active part in workshops, be part of group activities and presentations and even design your own learning activities in some instances. There really is no 'one size fits all' approach to teaching and learning and at Pearson College London we recognise that

We understand that it can be difficult to absorb an hour's worth of information during a lecture. That's why we record all of our lectures so that you can revisit content as many times as you need. Our lectures help to introduce each topic and provide the base on which our students can build their learning
