The University of Greenwich has a long history of management education, and the MBA draws on decades of professional experience.
Our London based MBA is an internationally recognised Master's degree in business administration and management. We focus on developing your knowledge in business strategy and change management.
If you do not have a first degree in business then our MBA will give you solid grounding in business management, which will be followed by specialised international business courses, specialist projects and a guided internship.
We have structured our degree to allow you to follow your own professional interests, through a research project and professional practice. You can start your studies in September or January.
You will develop critical analytical skills in assessing the global environment for business; identifying new international business opportunities and analysing international markets and industries; dealing with complex issues both systematically and creatively; and communicating clearly to many audiences.
You will also reflect the increased emphasis on multidisciplinary and international perspective arising from today's market developments and explores the complexity and diversity of business in an increasingly interconnected world.
The 11-month internship (which you will need to secure) enables you to apply your knowledge and gain practical experience with a company of your choice, in the UK or overseas.
The internship will help you to put into practice skills developed in communication, numeracy and problem-solving within a professional context, and to build your sense of business values and integrity.
Our students worked for local and international employers within financial, retail, hospitality and tourism sectors. Companies include:
We also offer placement opportunities within our University's departments.
Our Client Based Dissertations (CBDs) will help you develop a clearer sense of how to link theory with practice and enrich your profile in the job market. Previous students have developed their projects for organisations, including:
Greenwich is one of the top two most globally diverse universities in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand, according to the Hotcourses Diversity Index.
We have also been named as one of the "most international" universities on the planet by Times Higher Education magazine.
Students are assessed via a range of innovative methods including:
Graduates pursue their management career in a wide range of multinational companies, non-government and public sector organisations. Some might find employment in small and medium enterprises in international trade, and local or central government.
Industry experts provide guest lectures, career development advice and curriculum input. Sector professionals are involved in developing content and teaching on various courses.
As part of our continuing Big Picture guest seminar series, senior executives from Northern Trust and Barclays are invited to pass on their insights and experience.
We have developed strong relations with companies in the financial centres in the City and Canary Wharf. This offers you networking, mentoring and internship opportunities, making it a perfect location to develop your career.
As part of our code of practice, it is the student's responsibility to find and secure their own internship.
However, our dedicated Business School Employability Office (BSEO) will support and guide you through workshops, meetings, briefings, one-to-one appointments and group sessions.
This includes guidance on CVs, resumes, covering letters, application forms, interviews and on-line tests.
The BSEO team was shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards, which shows its dedication to actively support career development.
We will encourage you to join societies such as the Economics and Business Society to take part in networking events, industry workshops and lectures from guest speakers.
