This MBA (top up) qualification is designed for holders of ATHE’s Postgraduate Diploma in Management graduates. This top-up MBA programme has been developed to enhance your management skills and competences and develop your decision making abilities. This MBA course will provide you a critical understand of complex business issues and challenges – and enhance the skills acquired at the ATHE Postgraduate level.
You will bring into the programme some experience of work. This might be from a functional role, for example marketing or HRM, or a profession such as law or accounting. In such a case you will have considerable depth of experience in one specific area. The MBA/MA will help you to gain a broader understanding of business by exposing you to different aspects of it but also by showing you how it all fits together. Conversely you might have had a broader role, perhaps in a small, family business, where you have some understanding about a range of activities but need some help in developing your knowledge and understanding.
In both cases our MBA/MA will help you develop your career. Critically, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions organisations make about their future.
The MBA/MA is not though simply an academic course. Organisations will bring into the classroom real-life problems for you to work on and try to solve and there is a requirement that you have a short placement with a company towards the end of the programme.
At LS Business School you will not simply learn about management - you will practice it.
This course will enable you to:
· Develop your existing skills and experience to management level;
· Apply your learning in a company and in real life business situations;
