As industries become increasingly globalised, managers need to perform and think in an international context like never before. The MBA Global and MBA Global Finance offer a transformational learning experience which equips you to excel in business, anywhere in the world.
This dynamic new MBA provides a smooth progression route for graduates with their sights set on international business careers. It opens the doors to rewarding and lucrative roles in leadership, management and strategy, financial and performance management, operations, markets, resources, risk and logistics.
Throughout, we will strengthen your employability alongside your subject knowledge. You’ll build an impressive and versatile portfolio of transferable skills, supported by a strong focus on career planning.
Our MBA Global is challenging both academically and practically. Featuring leading-edge theory and practical application, it will give you a critical understanding of global business and management, finance, risk and logistics.
The MBA is cleverly structured so that you can move beyond a domestic business mindset to consider issues and seek solutions in a truly global context. Each module will give you advanced and applied knowledge of key aspects of international business.
The MBA Global and MBA Global Finance are accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the UK’s professional body for managers and leaders, which means you will also achieve the CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership, and can apply for Chartered Manager status, when you have successfully completed our programme.
Our MBA Global has practical experience and work-based learning at its heart. You will go beyond the classroom to apply everything you learn to real-world business scenarios. All your assignments are based on genuine challenges faced by organisations today.
We draw on fascinating case studies to show you international business from fresh angles. Exciting projects will take you directly into companies to galvanise your thinking and gain experience in different business situations.
You even have the option of concluding your course with a company placement project, specialising in an area which reflects your professional interests and career aspirations.
We offer two MBA pathways so that you can select the study programme which best matches your existing experience, current role and future plans. Both give you a thorough grounding in strategic leadership, financial performance management, global operations, markets and resources, business research methods and data analysis.
The general MBA Global pathway focuses on key themes such as risk management and global supply chain management. Meanwhile, the MBA Global Finance pathway enables you to explore international finance, and mergers and acquisitions in greater detail.
We keep your learning relevant, up to date and meaningful. Our MBA Global tutors have extensive business and management experience in a wide range of organisations. They continue to undertake research and consultancy to refresh their knowledge and share it with you.
You’ll be inspired and motivated by our thriving network of contacts from professional bodies and regional, national and international businesses. We’ll introduce you to guest speakers from a variety of sectors and professions: they will keep you abreast of latest developments and debates. You can also raise your professional profile through networking at the many conferences and business events held at the University.
Ours is an engaging learning environment, where you’ll receive plenty of individual support from approachable and highly qualified tutors.
Our MBA Global participants come from all over the world and from all professions, so you’ll learn with - and from - a diverse group of aspiring business leaders. Everyone brings their own distinctive talents and experiences, so your discussions will be lively, illuminating and often surprising.
If you’re a full member of ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) or CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), or already hold the CMI L7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership you may be eligible for exemptions from up to three modules on the MBA Global and MBA Global Finance, equivalent to 60 credits. Please contact us to discuss further.
Our MBA Global tutors encourage you to contribute your own experience and opinions at every stage of the course. We use a range of teaching and learning methods to bring topics to life and help you apply the theory to real business situations. Throughout the course you are encouraged to apply your learning to the workplace so that you can deliver practical business benefits to your organisation.
You’ll learn through a variety of course materials, case studies, discussions, presentations, enquiry-based learning and problem-solving activities. We provide you with key reading and research activities, and you will make the most of the University’s own online teaching portal.
If you are studying part-time, you will attend sessions on Thursdays, 1-4pm and 5-8pm. These take place at our Kedleston Road site.
