    Course Description

    A good MBA can really make you stand out for the top jobs in any type of business, in fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area. You develop insights across the top discipline functions of business such as finance, strategy, economics, project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines from which you rapidly acquire the skills and knowledge to manage successfully. These disciplines come together in managing known high street brands, service industries, online businesses, new innovations and product streams, new services and high growth innovation start ups.

    The learning and skills you acquire from study can be applied to many situations to ensure that if you start a business you can utilise existing knowledge or people or you can set up a new team. You gain the thinking required to provide high growth enterprise very quickly and solve significant challenges in global business or organisations. Alternatively, you may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real threat to business existence in which you make changes very quickly at operational level to troubleshoot challenges and get the business back on track quickly.

    In this situation you can overcome the threats by applying your knowledge to ensure long term viability whilst managing short term risks to business. You can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction.

    The Global MBA is ideal if you are a working professional, you want to change direction or you seek more of a challenge and progression. You may be interested in setting up a new high growth business enterprise or you may want to get involved in troubleshooting different industries. The course is delivered online to fit around your work commitments. It is delivered by one of the ancient universities in the UK in partnership with IDI.
