Robin Roslender - Applicants

Across the school, I think it's fair to say that we teach accounting, finance, management, economics, business, and some quantitative techniques, and they're variously configured to create the degree programs. All of the programs are interdisciplinary, and moving forward, I think reflecting the need for inter-disciplinary training for managerial and employees in business settings. I think they're going to become more inter-disciplinary.

I think in a sense we're talking about combining different knowledges, as opposed to producing graduates who have a specific knowledge. Although there is provision particularly for those who are using a master's degree as a stepping stone towards doctoral work to develop their knowledge of, say, finance or, say, management accounting or, say, macro economics.

As a school, I think we're looking for students who want to build upon their existing stocks of knowledge. And for those who maybe have graduated in different non-financial, if you want to call it that, in non-business disciplines, they have an ambition, in the broadest sense, to move into the realms of the space of business management. We would want to be enthusiastic about embracing a new set of knowledge and beyond that, I think any postgraduate course requires new generic knowledge of a more learning nature and research and writing dissertations and writing long essays, which although in the social sciences and in humanities are maybe not unknown. For those students who come from more scientific backgrounds it's new. It's a new experience for them. But I think it's enthusiasm to embrace both new knowledge and new ways of learning.
