This unique course focuses on developing leading edge knowledge and skill sets, improving your ability to successfully lead and manage organisations in an ever changing and increasingly competitive environment.
Integrated MBA study with specialist facilities management modules
To be a successful leader, you need to understand, implement and integrate the current fundamental concepts of management, and have insights from differing professional perspectives. You gain this knowledge on our course by studying core MBA subjects within four integrated modules.
Completing an integrated module means that instead of studying a topic such as finance in isolation, you study finance together with marketing and decision making. Our approach replicates the real world where strategic decisions span multiple business areas, providing you with a richer and more realistic learning experience.
The core MBA modules are complemented by a range of specialist facilities management modules such as • delivering strategic facilities management • strategic property asset management • strategic project management.
This supports the development of your leadership and management skills. By transferring what you learn from the course, you can raise the profile of facilities management and the contribution it makes to the effectiveness of your organisation.
Projects tailored to your organisation's needs
We tailor assignments and projects to the needs of your organisation or your own areas of interest, which maximises the value of your studies. Your organisation also has the opportunity to provide input into your learning and contribute to your development.
You also complete a dissertation/consultancy project that involves investigating a current major issue from within your organisation.
Applied learning through case studies
As you progress through the course you apply your learning by problem-solving real or simulated case studies. This helps you to identify and deal with links and tensions between different areas of an organisation.
You enhance your leadership skills by encountering and managing varying, often competing, perspectives on management issues. Case studies enable you to practice and assess the impact of real-time decision making, embedding and demonstrating the skills you need during your career.
