The following module is compulsory for MBA students only:
MBA students have the opportunity to participate in a range of talks and activities designed to help them develop their personal and career management skills. Some past examples are described below.
John Lees, an internationally recognised career coach and careers writer, shared a number of insights into the changing job market and the skills individuals need to manage their career. Students were provided with a number of practical tools to help them identify their skills, focus on their career drivers, as well as think about their ideal job and the strategies needed to secure employment in a world where many jobs are never advertised.
Vicky Reeves, entrepreneur and Managing Director of the London-based web solutions company ChameleonNet, gave an inspiring and candid talk on the highs and lows of developing a successful business. She talked about how she has grown the company from a micro business to one that now employs around 30 people. She spoke about the skills that she has developed along the journey, how to go about getting the right advice and support, as well as providing some humorous stories to demonstrate the creative skills needed when running your own business.
Students have worked on a number of group projects. One of these involved producing a design proposal for a dedicated postgraduate common room within the School. The objectives being to build a more cohesive postgraduate community; create a ‘third place’ to exchange ideas, share knowledge and maximise the resources of the University and thus improve the Roehampton learning experience among the postgraduate community. Students were given a budget to work within and had to present their proposals to a number of key decision makers across the University.
The Roehampton MBA is fully recognised by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Successful completion of the programme leads to eligibility for membership of the CMI and the potential to gain chartered manager status.

You can browse through the comprehensive careers library, which holds an extensive range of occupational information, literature from professional bodies, and self-help materials on CVs, applications and interviews. You can also arrange individual, confidential interviews to discuss career plans, applications, interviews and job offers. In addition to the drop-in services offered, you will be invited to attend regular workshops, fairs and presentations by employers and careers experts.
