One of the biggest growth areas in UK education since the early 1980s has been the growth of university-level management education. In addition to weekly part-time attendance at college/university, many students employ distance learning. The number of UK business schools grew from two in the early 1970s, to over one hundred providers.

Management Education

Coaching, is a teaching, training or development process in which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional result or goal. Coaching is an effective learning tool that has an impact on the bottom line and productivity, as well as intangible benefits. It aids in the improvement of individual performance, tackles underperformance, and aids in the identification of personal learning needs.


Many management qualifications now have an action learning element. Action learning asserts that individuals learn best from hands-on experience rather than traditional instruction, so the process is structured to be interactive. Action learning allows individuals to try out different approaches to solving issues and problems.[1]
