    Course Description

    The MBA has been designed to support your career progression, preparing you to carry out managerial roles successfully or to build your own business. You will study with a cohort of experienced professionals drawn from a range of industries, building your network and giving you insights into best practice.

    You will explore issues that have significant impact within organisations by working with others and building on both personal individual experiences and comparing and contrasting with those of cohort members. You will carry out projects and assignments designed to help you critique and apply the theories, tools and techniques you learn.

    Much of the learning is developed through the establishment of collaborative learning communities of programme participants and tutors and you will become part of that community of learning. Your understanding is developed around the key skills, processes and practices of business, leadership and management.

    You can choose to study this course part-time and in the evenings to help you balance your studies with other commitments.

    Course detail & modules

    Our MBA is designed for graduates and business professionals. The course has been carefully mapped to ensure that you build business acumen and critical thinking to gain a competitive edge. 

    In a vibrant and supportive environment, you will develop professionally by combining your intellectual, analytical, strategic and critical thinking skills with your drive and ambition. This will help you to begin or progress in your chosen business career, or to change career direction.

    You will improve your effectiveness as a manager and leader, transforming your prospects for managerial careers as well as developing your entrepreneurial skill.

    On graduation, you will get a CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership as well as a Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership. 

    This industry-focused course has been designed with direct input from employers, large and small, from both public and private sectors. You will gain a broad overview of international management and business issues, with the choice of optional modules and a personal dissertation to suit your career aims.


    You can also choose to take this course with an internship at a relevant organisation. If you choose this option you can gain workplace experience, develop new skills and connect with potential employers.

    You will have an academic supervisor throughout the duration of your 40 week internship.

    Extended Masters option

    If you have an undergraduate degree, but do not quite meet the entry criteria for this course, you may qualify for our Extended Masters. You will take two extra modules to prepare you for the course, which will extend your total study time by 3-4 months. You must study for the Extended Masters full time. We also provide English-language support if you need it. Once you complete these two modules, you can progress directly onto the regular Masters course.
