SECTION C
Items for discussion.

7.      UNDERGRADUATE OFFICE
        Programme Specifications
        (Documents UGTC/2005-06/015-016)

        The Committee was asked to approve a revised programme specification for the
        BSc in Business Studies with effect from October 2005.

        The changes to the programme specification relate to a change in Programme
        Directorship, the incorporation of two modules approved at Teaching Committee in
        April 2005, a change to the required grades for progression to Part II of the degree
        following the introduction of the two modules and an amendment to the OWT and
        Economics modules students need to take in their first year and may take in the
        Michaelmas Term.

7.1     Programme Director
        A change in Programme Director from Gerry Steele (Economics) to Paul Taylor
        (Accounting and Finance) who takes over with effect from October 2005.

7.2     MNGT120: Management and Business: An Introduction to Theory and Practice
        and MNGT121: Business and British Society
        The addition of two new modules (approved at Teaching Committee in April 2005)

        MNGT120: Management and Business: An Introduction to Theory and Practice
        compulsory for all students
        MNGT121: Business and British Society compulsory for students who have not
        studied in the EU for the past 18 months

        Mr Taylor confirmed that feedback would be obtained from staff and students which
        would form the basis of a review following the first operation of the module
        MNGT121: Business and British Society. It is intended that this would occur out with
        the normal Annual Programme Review processes so as to gain early feedback on
        the module.

7.3     Scheme of study structures and features

7.3.1   A change to the scheme of study features so that it is no longer compulsory for
        students to take either OWT or ECON as one of their options in their first year.
7.3.2   A change to the scheme of study features so that students can take a part module in
        OWT in the Michaelmas Term combined with either the second part of OWT, or
        MSCI102 or MSCI103 in the Lent Term.
7.3.3   A change to the scheme of study features which due to the introduction of the two
        new modules at Part I in order to qualify to proceed to Part II of the degree the Part I
        required grades have altered slightly as follows:

        1. Students must achieve 45% or more in the core module including at least 45% in
        each of its components
        2. Students must achieve at least 45% in a second part I subject
        3. Students must achieve at least 40% in a third part I subject

                                                                  Document UGTC/2005-06/034




         If MNGT121: Business and British Society has been taken and passed the required
         grade is 40% in second and third part I subjects instead of 45% and 40%.

7.4      The Committee approved the changes to the programme specification for the BSc
         in Business Studies subject to the following amendments:

         The deletion of ECON120: The rise of modern business in a historical perspective
         from the list of modules at Part 1.
         To note that ACF262 will be renumbered ACF212 with effect from 2006/07.

         Action: Consideration by the Undergraduate Studies Committee.
         Action: Committee Secretary to update the central programme specification
         record.


8.       DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS
         (Document UGTC/2005-06/017-031)

8.1      BA (Hons) Economics/ BSc (Hons) International Business
8.1.1.   ECON101: Principles of Economics I and ECON102: Principles of Economics II
         (Document UGTC/2005-06/017)

         The Committee was asked to approve the following changes to the assessment for
         ECON101 and ECON102: Principles of Economics with effect from October 2005:

         For the purposes of assessment, the course is split into three parts: Microeconomics
         (Michaelmas Term), Macroeconomics (Lent Term) and Applied Topics (Summer
         Term). Coursework is to be submitted for each part.

         The proposal would be that should a student’s mark fall below 55% in each of the
         total Microeconomics and Macroeconomics components they would be entered for a
         two hour final examination which covers material from Microeconomics and
         Macroeconomics. If a student achieves 55% or more on either the Microeconomics
         coursework or the Macroeconomics coursework they would be entered for a one
         hour final examination which is based on that part of the course for which they are
         not exempt. If a student achieves 55% or more on both the Microeconomics and
         Macroeconomics coursework then they would not be entered for the final
         examination and their mark would be based solely on coursework.

         The rationale for the proposed change is that examination marks in the two
         Principles of Economics modules have been disappointing over the last three years
         and student effort and participation in tutorials has also caused concern. The
         proposed change would offer an incentive-based assessment scheme where hard
         work in tutorials and coursework would be rewarded by a smaller examination
         requirement. It is expected that students would respond to these incentives with
         improved coursework marks. The new examination structure fits previously agreed
         changes to module content.

         Dr Johnes confirmed that students would have the option to take the exam even if
         they achieved a coursework mark of above 55%. The Department of Economics
         had considered this in particular for those students requiring a mark of 60% or above
         for scholarship purposes.

         Dr Johnes confirmed that the department are aware of the need to ensure against
         cases of plagiarism, although it is felt that this would not be the case as two of the
         three pieces of coursework which comprise the assessment for microeconomics are
         tests taken under examination conditions. This is also the case for the
         macroeconomics assessment.

                                                                Document UGTC/2005-06/034



        Students would be given advance notification that they would be required to
        undertake the examination and therefore would not be disadvantaged.

8.1.1.1 The Committee approved the changes to assessment for ECON101 and ECON102:
        Principles of Economics with effect from October 2005.

        Action: Consideration by the Undergraduate Studies Committee.
        Action: Committee Secretary to update the central programme specification
        record.

8.1.2   ECON208: Business and the Macroeconomy
        (Document UGTC/2005-06/018-020)

        The Committee was asked to approve a change in title from ECON208: Business
        and the Macroeconomy to ECON208: Business and International Macroeconomics
        and amended lecture content to reflect the module title change for ECON208 with
        effect from Lent Term 2005/06.

        The rationale for the changes would ensure a greater differentiation between the
        BSc (Hons) International Business scheme and the Economics single major
        programme, making it more attractive to overseas students.

8.1.2.1 The Committee agreed to approve a change to the title and lecture content for
        ECON208: Business and the Macroeconomy with effect from Lent Term 2005/06.

        Action: Consideration by the Undergraduate Studies Committee
        Action: Committee Secretary to update the central programme specification
        record.

8.2     BSc (Hons) International Business
        (Document UGTC/2005-06/021-031)

        The Committee was asked to approve a reduction in the number of core final year
        modules on the BSc (Hons) International Business from three to two with effect from
        2006/07. The Department has undergone a review of its 300 level module provision
        and agreed a proposal to reduce the number of module from 16 to 11 by merging
        modules of similar content.

        Dr Johnes confirmed that the 300 level module provision with the Department of
        Economics have traditionally had 20 contact hours except in the case of quantitative
        modules where lab sessions bring this to 30 contact hours. There is an expectation
        on modules with 20 contact hours that students need time to follow up and read
        references.

        Dr Johnes was advised to consider the renumbering of the proposed new modules
        in respect of LUSI.

        Action: Dr Johnes to consider the renumbering of the proposed new modules
        in respect of LUSI.

        Chair’s Note: Following discussions the Department of Economics wish to
        renumber their 300 level module provision from ECON325 onwards.

        The Committee was asked to approve the following new modules with effect from
        2006/07:

8.2.1   ECON325: Advanced Microeconomics (Document UGTC/2005-06/022)
        A new 15 credit module which would replace ECON314 Monetary Economics and
        ECON320: Economics of Competitive Strategy.

8.2.6   ECON332: Economic Growth and Development (Document UGTC/2005-06/027)
        A new 15 credit module which would replace ECON312 Economics of Developing
        Countries and ECON313 Emerging Economies.

        Policy.

8.2.7.1 The Committee agreed to approve the new 15 credit module ECON333:

        Business majors and replaces ECON315 International Money and Finance and
        ECON318 International Business

        The Committee raised concerns about potential overlap between the proposed
        content for ECON334 and that of AcF305: International Financial Management. Dr
        Johnes was advised to consult with the module convenor for ECON334 concerning
        the proposed module content and whether students opting for ECON334 should be
        excluded from undertaking AcF305.

        Action: Dr Johnes to consult with the module convenor for ECON334 concerning the
        proposed module content and potential overlap with AcF305: International Financial
        Management.

8.2.9   ECON335: Dissertation Unit (Document UGTC/2005-06/030)
        A new 15 credit module. The module would allow students to combine their
        knowledge of macro and/or microeconomic theory with statistics/econometrics to the
        analysis of an applied topic. These topics range from issues of public policy to
        questions that arise in the conduct of international business. By combining their
        knowledge of theory and statistical techniques, together with data collection and
        manipulation, it is hoped that students will better understand how applied research is
        conducted.

8.2.9.1 The Committee agreed to approve the new 15 credit module ECON335:
        Dissertation Unit with effect from 2006/07.

9.      INTERNATIONAL OFFICE

9.1     International Foundation Course in Business at Manchester College of Arts
        and Technology (MANCAT)
        (Document UGTC/2005-031-32)

        The Committee noted an initial proposal from Lancaster University Management
        School to introduce a new International Foundation Course in Business, leading to
        the awarding of Certificate of Completion from Lancaster University along with a
        draft Memorandum of Understanding.



                                             10
                                                                  Document UGTC/2005-06/034




       MANCAT is a major Further and Higher Education College with four significant sites
       (and a number of smaller locations) in Manchester city centre and surrounding area.
       It serves the needs of the local population but also has an international presence
       and recruits overseas students to a range of its pre-degree and HND level courses.
       Foundation courses for overseas students are already offered in a number of areas.

       The course structure would be based on MANCAT’s existing programme which
       combines courses delivered specifically for international students (in study skills,
       English Language and IT), with NQF level 3 units in Business Studies. The structure
       would be based on their existing programme which combines courses delivered
       specifically for international students (in study skills, English Language and IT), with
       NQF level 3 units in Business Studies.

       Successful completion of the Foundation Course in Business and the meeting of
       LUMS’ entry requirements would provide entry to LUMS’ undergraduate degree
       programmes.

       The Committee noted that a full syllabus for the programme would be presented to
       the next meeting.


10.    ANY OTHER BUSINESS

10.1   Annual Programme Review
       Dr Wright presented a request from Professor Chetwynd concerning final marks
       straying outside the 55-65% norm.       Dr Wright asked Teaching Committee
       representatives to provide a commentary on the modules which strayed outside the
       norm and action being taken as an attachment to their Undergraduate Annual
       Programme Reviews.

       Action: Teaching Committee representatives to provide a commentary on
       modules which strayed outside the 55-65% norm and action being taken as an
       attachment to their Undergraduate Annual Programme Reviews.

10.2   Sunway College, Malaysia
       Dr Wright informed Committee members that he had visited Sunway College in
       Malaysia with other colleagues across the University to discuss possible
       collaboration at institutional level. The intention would be for the development of a
       relationship based, in part, on Lancaster University’s Associate College model. It is
       envisaged that LUMS will be required to nominate course consultants to take part in
       a formal institutional validation in Malaysia. Dr Wright indicated that a full report of
       the visit would be available shortly.
