Enhance your management knowledge, your leadership capabilities, your global perspective and your professional career with our Masters Business Administration (MBA).
We've developed a cycle of learning based on theory, practice, experience and observation, and reflection and improvement. So, you'll not only be taught the latest strategies, but also given every opportunity to put your learning into action in real business settings.
At Nottingham Business School, we structure our courses to encourage constructive learning, self-directed study, critical thinking and team work. You'll spend much of your time in small-group workshops and tutorials, discussing and analysing your experience of business practices and behaviours.
Semester One Semester One forms the core of your studies, and is designed to give you an understanding of the philosophical basis of our MBA. It's made up of a central Responsible and Sustainable Leadership module, plus four modules on fundamental management concepts.
Semester Two The second semester includes three modules.
MBA (Full-time) You'll be able to select one elective module and then complete the Strategic Renewal and Transformation module. Your knowledge and skills will then be put to the test with the Strategic Change and Consultancy module, which includes a team-based live project.
Specialist MBA (Full-time) You can take a specialist MBA route in finance, global supply chain management, or digital marketing. Your modules will be tailored towards the specialism. Your knowledge and skills will then be put to the test with the Strategic Change and Consultancy module, which includes a team-based live project.
Final semester In the final semester, you'll undertake an international study tour and take on a live overseas consultancy project. You will also be able to hone your research skills and complete an in-depth research project.
- Placement year opportunities If you're studying full-time, you can choose to add a year's work placement, making your MBA into a two-year course. It's a great way to put your learning into practice and gain career-enhancing real-world experience. We have extensive links with corporate partners who may be able to offer placements, and we'll work with you to help you find the right opportunity.
