Learn From The Best

Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. We are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide with double accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting.

Our staff are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading. The quality of our research, teaching and engagement with business were among the factors that led to Newcastle Business School being named ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Teaching And Assessment

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on course work and our methods will include essays, reports, group work and presentations. The master’s dissertation or consultancy project will form a major part of the assessment.

Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. You’ll use software such as ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new, higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your 15,000-word dissertation or your master’s consultancy project. We’ll support you in the development and completion of the dissertation/project.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief. It’ll be essential to undertake primary and desk research combined with reading and reflection.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

The master’s consultancy project offers an (optional) opportunity to develop practical experience. You’ll work in a small group, typically no more than five people, and tackle a live project from a host organisation under the mentorship of a member of our academic team. The project will require you to link theory to practice while simultaneously honing your employability skills.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Thanks to the specialist modules – Business Intelligence, Marketing Metrics and Analysis, and the dissertation/consultancy project – you’ll have a particular edge in areas related to business analytics, including market research, digital marketing and consulting.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. The University’s library was ranked #2 in the UK in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015.

The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities. You’ll use software such as ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, various SAS applications, Microsoft Project, specialist decision-making software, and Google Analytics.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

At Northumbria it’s easy to put your learning into practice. In addition to the Advanced Practice element of the course, further opportunities for experiential learning are available through our Student Engagement Centre which promotes volunteering and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Research-Rich Learning

As a master’s student you’ll develop your research skills to a new, higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your 15,000-word dissertation or your master’s consultancy project. We’ll support you in the development and completion of the dissertation/project.

If you decide on a master’s consultancy project you’ll be expected to show a deep understanding of the issues that are involved in the client brief. It’ll be essential to undertake primary and desk research combined with reading and reflection.

Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

In the second year of the course you’ll be gaining workplace experience and putting your new learning into practice. You’ll develop a track record of achievement that will help you stand out from other job applicants. We’ll help you find an internship / project that matches your interests and career aspirations, building on Newcastle Business School’s very successful background in placing students.

A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more hands-on practical experience.

Your Future

Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Some employers require completion of a two-year master’s degree and this course will meet their requirement.

Thanks to the specialist modules – Business Intelligence, Marketing Metrics and Analysis, and the dissertation/consultancy project – you’ll have a particular edge in areas related to business analytics, including market research, digital marketing and consulting.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.

Study Abroad

One of the key challenges facing any student planning to undertake a business-related degree is how to compete in the job market with business graduates around the world who are also trying to ignite their business career. We know from experience and talking to employers that international awareness is a key differentiator. Many of our students have already taken the first step by travelling hundreds or thousands of miles to study in an unfamiliar environment. However the international exchange option takes that to the next level. We are developing exchange opportunities in Asia, Europe and South America that will give students the opportunity to create a truly unique selling proposition to future employers. Students spend one semester studying business (taught and assessed in English) in another international domain. In some cases there will be an opening for basic level study of the language and culture of the host region.

You will learn through a combination of the University’s e-learning platform (eLP) and electronic resources, and class contact through lectures, workshops and seminars. This blended approach recognises that significant learning takes place outside of the formally scheduled sessions through independent learning, and is intended to develop you as a critical, enquiring learner.

Our assessment philosophy was developed around Assessment for Learning (AfL). The key purpose is to foster your development as a student, enabling you to take responsibility in evaluating, judging and improving your own performance by actively using a range of feedback. These capabilities are at the heart of autonomous learning and are graduate qualities valued by employers and in professional practice.

Learning Environment

All modules make extensive use of the university electronic Learning Platform (eLP) and the learning experience it offers. Module tutors use lecture capture software to record lectures for later streaming. This software also allows academics to make lectures available in a variety of downloadable formats for you to watch on your mobile devices when it is most convenient.

You will also be encouraged to access recorded lectures and TED talks that provide a solid grounding for complex business and management concepts, while authentic written texts such as journal article papers help you to develop strategies for reading and understanding arguments from complex language and ideas.

Research-Rich Learning

The course combines a research-led and research-tutored learning approach offered by the English Language and Business modules respectively. This allows you to develop your academic skills gained in previous studies and enhance your intellectual and professional competences required for postgraduate study in Business and Management.

The modules have been developed to meet your specific needs, and are research-informed and highly contemporary. Lectures and seminars are interactive to ensure that you fully understand how to apply the theories that you have learned, and to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your learning and appreciation of business issues.

Give Your Career An Edge

Through this course we will provide you with a detailed understanding and knowledge of how business works, enhancing your attractiveness to potential employers through a specific approach to your personal development.

A key purpose of the course is to develop skills in areas such as academic writing, learning styles, working in teams, developing critical thinking skills, understanding research and how to make effective use out of journal articles in the specific context of business and management. The modules are research-informed and highly contemporary, with appropriate links to enhancing employability signposted throughout.

Your Future

Modules on the course are specifically designed to enhance your reflection and evaluation skills, to prepare you for entry to postgraduate study in Business and Management. Classroom-based sessions will provide an opportunity to develop discussion and reflection, teamwork, presentation, and leadership skills. You will be able to capitalise on past academic and employment experience, and become exposed to a variety of business sectors and management scenarios.

Although the course is explicitly designed as a pathway to the MSc Business suite of courses, the skills practised are transferrable and will provide a strong grounding in business, management and leadership roles. As one of our graduates you will benefit from the Business and Law Schools’ Alumni Networking Platform, and from our close ties with the regional and national business communities.

What is the 'Master of Business Administration' all about?

Three majors

The majors not only deepen the knowledge but also broaden it and offer insight into the selected management domain. In your Master's thesis you will carry out scientific research into a business-relevant or economic subject. The Master's thesis is the conclusion of your degree course. It gives you the opportunity to display your analytical attitude as well as your ability to synthesise and your oral and written communication skills.

1. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

The programme provides you with an overview of the many different aspects of management of organisations and companies. Are you planning on launching an international business career? Are you eager to work for a company or an organisation that operates on an international scale? Do you like international (strategic) management, international strategic decision making, international marketing, entrepreneurship, business processes and operations? The IBM major is tailored to students seeking a business-oriented, hands-on, critical, and problem-oriented approach to education. Students are challenged to study and work in a multicultural team.

2. BUSINESS INFORMATION MANAGEMENT

For students with a strong interest in the general operation of industrial processes and the related information technology they require. Business information managers lead IT projects and supervise new IT systems. In the world of ICT, three things matter most: the right information shared in the right place with the right people. Students in the BIM major have an eye for both the overall picture and specific details. They have strong social skills, and excel at building bridges between users, managers and technical ICT experts. These are precisely the skills developed in this major. Students in the BIM are interested and, ideally, well-versed in technology, computers and networks. However, the focus is not on hardware or technical aspects, but on developing and evaluating information systems. There is a high demand in the industry for competent people who are willing and able to think creatively and logically about information systems. You will be trained to find solutions quickly and to explain them clearly to users.

3. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

The International Relations (IR) major is embedded in the context of global economics and business life. It takes a practical-analytical approach to the study of multinationals

and is embedded in a sound theoretical framework. It covers international management and marketing techniques as well as international socio-economic analysis and monetary economics. Students in the IR major particularly develop insight into the role of governments in international relations and business. The IR major is built on three international pillars: an economic pillar (what is the economic environment in which an international firm operates?); a business pillar (how does an international firm operate in this environment?); and a political/legal pillar (which political and legal aspects does an international firm have to take into account?).

Truly international 

Our MBA will challenge you to meet and work closely with students from other cultures and nationalities. The diversity of our programme is impressive.

Business oriented 

We invite international managers and government officials to share their experiences with students at guest lectures and business seminars held throughout the year.

In the heart of Europe

Learn business where business is done! Brussels is the economic heart of Europe. As a business hub, Brussels has a central position in Europe and it hosts the EU and the NATO, as well as diverse range of international trade and finance organisations.

Brussels is where hundreds of multinational corporations have their head offices and where many important political and economic decisions are made. Your campus is in the middle of this decision-making centre: a head start for launching your career.

Centrally located

The campus is located in the heart of Brussels, only a five-minute walk from Brussels Central train station, with several metro (underground) connections in the immediate vicinity.

Interdisciplinary

Our MBA's interdisciplinary approach prepares you to address and solve business problems by drawing on insights and experiences from multiple disciplines and perspectives - often as a member of a team. In this way, the MBA emulates the real business world and leverages input from a multitude of cultural backgrounds and worldviews.

International experience

The Master of Business Administration is international not only in focus and content, but also in terms of student population. As the language of instruction is English, students from all over the world attend, which allows for intercultural interaction on a daily basis.

If you haven't had the chance to study abroad before, or if you want to have another international experience under your belt, you can add an extra semester abroad to your programme. In that case, apply for a place at one of our many European partners or more limited set of non-European partners. Eligibility and selection depend on your study progress, academic results, your language proficiency and motivation.

Career perspectives

Thanks to your general business background combined with your specialism you as a business administrator can work in a wide range of positions at companies or organisations. The international character of your degree programme is an asset.

The International Business Management major prepares graduates for management positions in finance, administration and commerce. Employment opportunities are numerous and diverse. Many graduates choose to pursue a career in the financial sector or in management consultancy firms.

The Business Information Management major prepares graduates for management positions in ICT. The demand for driven managers with ICT expertise continues to grow. Our graduates go on to positions as business consultants, business process engineers, project leaders, system analysts, functional analysts, information analysts, system designers/administrators, network and data administrators.

The International Relations major prepares graduates for management positions in international organisations, NGOs, government, multinational enterprises and local organisations with a global perspective. Graduates have keen insight into international economic and political realities and are thus also well-positioned for careers in banking and international business.

Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Introductory Certificate

Work Experience Opportunities

Full time on campus students can elect to participate in a Work Placement – completing the module Organisational Culture and Work Environments, instead of Business research (consultancy project). These placements can enable you to develop your skills and knowledge in a work environment, with the aim to give you an advantage over the competition for jobs and scholarships after you graduate.

Your placement would last between 6 and 12 months, and be appropriate to the level of study and you should also be paid. We will support you in finding and securing a placement, however it must be noted that placements are highly competitive and there is no guarantee of a placement offer being made by an employer.

If you think a work placement is not for you, or are unable to secure a placement within the first nine months of the programme, then you will be automatically transferred to our Business Research (Consultancy) Project module to gain the required credits to complete the MBA. The module will be taught in three full day intensive workshops and supported with one-to-one supervision. You will have approximately three months to work on your project and will complete your MBA programme within 12 months.
