    Course Description

    This programme is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Students of this programme will graduate with the dual award of a Bangor University Masters and a Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership.

    An MBA is now the globally recognised qualification for senior personnel and executives within both the private and public sectors. As the impact of change, the importance of strategy and intensification of competition increases, organisations are demanding managers who can contribute a depth of understanding in the business community as a whole. The growing economic importance of entrepreneurship has also re-emphasised the need for a clearer understanding of the theory and practice relating to business and management in both new and existing organisations.

    The MBA in Management aims to build on our long-established expertise in the area of postgraduate training by offering a one-year modular MBA programme which focuses on developing participants’ academic and managerial skills in areas such as organisational behaviour, marketing strategy, e-business and new venture creation. An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training to familiarise participants with the latest strategic, managerial and industrial developments in both the public and private sectors.

    The course provides a coherent analytical framework for the study of business and enterprise from a management perspective. The emphasis throughout the programme is on the application of contemporary, financial, managerial and strategic developments that affect real-world decision-making in the global market place.

    We recognise that a thorough understanding of recent developments in management, entrepreneurship, strategy, marketing and finance are essential requirements for all those involved in a management role (or those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of these important business and management areas).

    The programme is accredited by the CIMA (the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) which means students could be entitled to claim exemptions for some of their professional examinations, please see CIMA website.

    (Student Profile)

    Ahmed Dhaif

    I personally love finance very much, but I also love being involved in managerial roles, being up ahead and lead. Bangor University is one of the very few having a master’s degree with combination of management and finance, and upon graduation we receive a level 7 CMI (Chartered Management institute) degree in Strategic Management and Leadership as well, I mean what more can we ask for, considering its a 1 year program.

    My lecturers are on a whole different level, each one of them is a powerhouse of knowledge mixed with pure humble and respect to us students, something that caused me a culture shock, when a professor asks her or his student to just call him or her by their first name and not professor. Hats off for every single one of them for their pure class communication with us students and the knowledge they have in hand.

    My personal tutor happens to be one my amazing lecturers this semester and she has been great. The Welsh and the people living in Bangor are just very accommodative and down to earth, making it very easy to blend in with society. I appreciate the small things in life, so I believe Bangor offers everything a student need.
