Due to Covid-19, we have made some changes to teaching and learning for the 2020-21 academic year: we have blended high-quality virtual engagement with in-person teaching on campus when possible. Blended learning will continue to some extent in the 2021-22 academic year and we will continue to keep the situation under review in light of ongoing Government guidance. If you’re planning on joining us in September 2021 we will communicate with you about specific details of how your course is taught nearer the time.
The MBA Leadership is designed to further develop your understanding of theoretical and practical knowledge and expertise in business, management and leadership.
The course enables you to take an international perspective about business, management and leadership to deepen your understanding of the impact of globalisation on business, societies and the environment.
