If your career plan includes securing a high-level management position or becoming a successful entrepreneur, our Master of Business Administration (MBA) will open the doors for you to work anywhere in the world and ultimately prove that you are an expert within your industry.
Our intensive course, designed to integrate your own work-based learning, will teach you the academic rigor, skills and ethics to be a leader in the business community who can think logically and independently to make high-end decisions.
The MBA is internationally considered the gold standard of business degrees and on our course, you will explore contemporary business and management principles and learn how to apply them to genuine situations, using real-world case studies – from local to international business level.
Our MBA programme is designed to integrate your own learning and development in a work-based situation into six core modules of academic theory and practice. You will complete individual and group-based assignments that will develop your knowledge and understanding of the materials covered and how these apply in an organisational context.
There will also be a case-study/presentation project enabling you to apply a range of theories and knowledge to a real problem in your organisation, allowing you to reflect on your own management style and organisational performance.
You will be taught by tutors with a wealth of international business experience, who have worked for organisations such as the UN and as professional consultants.
We ensure that your learning in business management, operations, planning and finance is relevant to the current global economic climate and that you are kept up-to-speed with the latest thinking in management research.
Our aim is for you to graduate with a globally-recognised MBA, which proves you understanding of contemporary business and management principles and the current issues affecting organisations.
It will stand you in excellent stead to secure business sustainability and give you the confidence to make high-end business decisions and the potential to become a leader in your field.
An MBA is the primary management qualification for aspiring business leaders, giving you the skills and knowledge to progress your career to more senior levels or give you a stepping-stone to a new career.
