Overview

Please select a specialisation for more details:

Business, ethics and society

Business, ethics and society investigates and activates the role of business as ethical and social leaders. The specialisation equips students with an understanding of the theoretical foundations and practical issues of internal and external ethical and societal forces that businesses face, respond to and activate. Business, ethics and society especially develops students' critical engagement and leadership capabilities to manage diversity, inclusiveness, and work and life. These capacities are developed within a strong context of ethics and corporate responsibility, and the domestic and international environments in that organisations operate. The specialisation prepares students for active managerial roles within organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Commercialisation

Commercialisation is the process or cycle of introducing a new product or production method into the market. The commercialisation process or cycle can be applied in many different contexts, including: art, design, and architecture; arts and humanities; business and economics; education; engineering; information technology; law; medicine, nursing and health sciences; pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences; and science and technology. The specialisation provides a comprehensive business-focused setting to help students develop the necessary business and entrepreneurial acumen and commercialisation knowledge to succeed. Commercialisation especially develops students' new venture finance, patenting, innovation, and wealth pathways skills and knowledge. The specialisation prepares students, particularly facilitated by the commercialisation project, for commercialisation and entrepreneurial roles within organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Information technology

The information technology discipline allows students to build upon the core program with six units dealing with current practices and emerging strategies for the application of information technology in business management. Students are introduced to management of the creation, storage, recall and dissemination of business records within organisation-wide frameworks and they will gain a high-level of understanding of the processes of project management. Units are taught by the Faculty of Information Technology.

Law and responsible business

The fortunes of a business can quickly turn around if it does not pay proper attention to the laws that regulate its organisation and activities. The law provides the framework for all aspects of business from the internal management of business organisations to their relationships with clients, consumers and the public. The units in this specialisation provide students with an understanding of the legal framework within which business operates and the fundamental laws that regulate business activities and transactions, with particular emphasis on how legal and social responsibility considerations should impact business decision-making.

Managing human capital

Managing human capital is the recognition of people as valuable contributors, and the systems and operations for investing in people to enhance their contributions. The specialisation equips students with an understanding of the theoretical foundations and practical issues of managing and developing people within an international context. Managing human capital develops students' strategic and operational people management knowledge and skills, particularly for diverse, inclusive, and productive workplaces. This specialisation prepares students for careers in human resource management, industrial relations, consulting, public sector management, and general people management roles.

Marketing

Marketing is a fun, dynamic, complex activity (and discipline) that focuses on providing value to both organisations and consumers. Very simply, marketing is about matching what an organisation has (or can do) with someone who wants it. Marketing is about selling, it is about advertising, but it also so much more. The study and practice of the 'so much more' is what makes marketing so interesting!

In today's dynamic and global business environment, marketing permeates all areas of operations and forms an integral element of business growth and achievement. Highly qualified, innovative and international marketing practitioners, supported by well researched and pertinent marketing knowledge, are increasingly in demand.

Project management

A project is a collection of activities and resources undertaken to achieve planned objectives, which could be defined in terms of time, quality and cost or economic outcomes. Project management is the process of ensuring defined goals are achieved in relation to a project. This specialisation provides graduates with the knowledge, technology and processes employed in project management that allow them to pursue such professional roles in industry and government. This specialisation will provide graduates with an understanding and ability to apply the theories and concepts of project management, and will assist in a variety of roles in industry or government. Graduates will be able to analyse requirements for the management of given projects, identify the applicable methods and develop innovative project management strategies and processes.

Quantitative business analysis

Students will be provided with advanced quantitative skills required to carry out statistical analysis in business, economics and finance. They will also develop skills to report on the findings of their quantitative analysis.

Risk management

Risk is defined by AS/NZS ISO 31000: 2009 as 'the effect of uncertainty on objectives'. The management of risk is an evolving discipline that builds on current knowledge in a diverse range of activities. The risk management specialisation focuses on operational and financial risk in today's commercial world. It provides extended skills in the strategic and process applications of risk management and prepares for the increasingly complex risk management issues faced in many areas of business and government. It prepares graduates for roles that are required to address business, insurance and financial risk. The range of units undertaken will greatly assist those seeking employment in managerial positions where risk management is an expanding field of practice.

Supply chain management

Supply chain management involves the coordination of people, organisations, technologies and processes to ensure optimal supply of products and services. This specialisation develops students' capacity to design and optimise supply chains, and to manage them to achieve strategic business outcomes. Supply chain management enhances students' skills and knowledge in innovation and improvement, business optimisation, services and operations management, and sustainable operations management. The specialisation prepares students for careers in supply chain management roles in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Sustainability

The sustainability specialisation focuses on current practices and emerging strategies for improving corporate sustainability, particularly in social, economic and environmental domains. The units within this specialisation will provide insights into sustainability from the perspectives of governance, ethics and management. This specialisation is suited to those who want to enhance their knowledge and skills in both business and sustainability issues and who seek employment in environmental governance or corporate sustainability management. It will also suit those who want to enable organisational and individual change in support of sustainability.

Benefits of the MBA with a specialism in Leadership Studies

- For you
You’ll gain a better understanding of yourself and how others perceive you in your leadership role.
Exposed to key business management and leadership theories and practices, you'll have an unparalleled opportunity to develop your strategic and behavioural leadership skills.
You’ll gain a greater understanding of business management and will be able to lead your people more effectively, and will have the opportunity for networking through an outstanding international alumni network.
We have thousands of members worldwide, many of whom have reached the highest positions in their fields.

- For your organisation
By supporting your directors or managers on the MBA in Leadership programme, you'll be helping determine the long-term success of your organisation.
A survey conducted by an independent consultancy on behalf of The Leadership Trust Foundation found that strong leadership qualities are the most important factor for achieving optimum performance at board and senior management levels.

Flexible study routes

The MBA with a specialism in Leadership Studies can be taken as part of the Flexible Learning route. It’s designed to fit with your demanding work responsibilities.

Usually, you'll take the course part-time on a modular basis over three years but it can also be taken from between two years and six years.

Based on the core curriculum of the Strathclyde MBA, the programme uses a combination of formal courses, self-study through supported distance learning, practical training and project work.

Accreditation

Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The three international accrediting bodies are:
- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
- The European Quality Improvement System
- The Association of MBAs

To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one we're proud of.

- Association of Masters of Business Administration (AMBA)
You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.

Entry requirements

Our selection process is designed to identify talented professionals from a wide range of academic, business and cultural backgrounds.

While there are formal requirements for entry listed below, we take into consideration:
- your potential
- your interpersonal and team working qualities
- the range and nature of your managerial experience

In order to assess these skills we ask you to complete a number of essays outlining your experience and aspirations alongside references supporting your work experience and academic record.

We may ask you to undertake a formal interview to discuss your achievements and aspirations. We would encourage you to visit the school or centre you’re applying to and to ask as many questions as you need to clarify your decision.

Qualifications & experience

For entry to the MBA with a specialism in leadership studies programme you must:
- hold a degree from a UK university, or equivalent academic qualification from a comparable non-UK institution. If you studied for your undergraduate degree at a non-UK institution we will need a copy of your degree transcript. Professional qualifications will also be considered.
- be at least 28 years of age.
- have a minimum of three years' full-time postgraduate experience where the management of people and resources has played a significant role.

Admissions testing

Although the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a standard requirement of our admissions process, strong verbal reasoning and numerical abilities are critical for the MBA and we may ask you to undertake such a test.

Competence in English

The MBA programme is highly interactive and requires a high level of competence in English speaking, writing, reading and understanding.
A minimum score of 6.5 in IELTS is required for applicants whose first language is not English. We may consider applicants who fall slightly below these standards if they're willing to undertake pre-sessional study.

Computer competence

In order to undertake the Diploma/MBA you need to be competent in word processing, the use of spreadsheets and in report writing.

Learning & teaching

A mix of teaching and learning methods are used. There is distance learning via texts, case studies, exercises and tutor support. There's also residential days at the Leadership Trust Foundation and intensive seminars at Strathclyde Business School.
The whole programme requires about 1,800 hours of course and workshop attendance, private study and project work over three years. You should allow five to ten hours a week for private study.

Careers

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.

That's why we also offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. You'll get career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.

We work with you to complement your own proactive job search efforts too. We help you use your own career background and strengths to progress to your next career move.

You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.

You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.

How we teach you

A holistic approach

Effective leadership requires more than first-class business acumen. It also requires a degree of self-awareness and sensitivity. Henley is renowned for its well-researched, professional approach to this aspect of business education and all our postgraduate programmes examine this aspect of leadership - helping to create emotionally intelligent graduates who can be fully effective in their chosen careers.

How you will learn

Henley Business School enjoys a strong reputation for the practical application of business ideas and concepts, underpinned by academic excellence and the strength of our research.

Our postgraduate masters programmes feature a mix of core and optional modules, allowing you to tailor your degree towards your individual personal development needs and career ambitions. You will complete up to 10 taught modules during your programme, totalling 180 credits. One module usually equates to 20 credits or 10 hours of work per week.

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

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.
