This MBA is designed to help you meet the challenges of the complex environment in which organisations today must increasingly operate, with global markets no longer the sole remit of multinational corporations.

The programme includes a module on the International Marketing and Business Environment, while in the residency you will join with fellow students from a multinational environment to develop the skills needed to tackle global-local challenges in ethics, responsibility and sustainability.

The MBA programmes benefit greatly from the internationality derived from recruiting students from across the globe, and drawing on tutors well qualified in their field.

Learn at Switzerland’s premier private college and graduate with students from over 130 different countries and from the University of Cumbria.

The Residency

The University of Cumbria eight MBAs that we offer provide you with the best of both online and conventional studies. For the majority of your studies you enjoy the flexibility of online learning at your own pace from anywhere in the world, through Robert Kennedy College’s OnlineCampus state-of-the-art course delivery system. For a one-week residential you will attend the University of Cumbria in the idyllic setting of the British Lake District. Intimately associated with English Literature in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Lake District is considered one of the most beautiful areas of the United Kingdom.

The residency gives you the opportunity to complement your flexible online learning programme with a learning experience that will leave you with lifetime memories. You will be taught by expert University of Cumbria faculty. The superb location of the University of Cumbria and its teaching are not the only elements that will have an impact on your learning experience. With students from every continent, it will be a truly international experience and an opportunity to network with fellow leaders from all over the world.

The MBA has been shaped to form what the programme team believes to be a unique curriculum. It allows students to:

  • Gain a UK Higher Education Institution accredited MBA.
  • Study in their own time (in whatever time-zone in which they live).
  • Study at their own pace (within the current period of University of Cumbria regulations for part-time study).
  • Attend a residential event in the heart of the English Lake District, with opportunities for further travel in the UK if desired.
  • Continue to live in their own country/location without disrupting family life.
  • Continue to pursue their existing career without a break.

The MBA International Business programme aims to develop an understanding and critical appreciation of the theories, tools and techniques of leadership and management that will enable graduates to more effectively participate in leading organisational change. In doing so, the programme seeks to improve the quality of management as a profession. In particular, the overarching purpose is, in the context of the specific award, to provide students with:

  • An advanced understanding of the management of organisations and the changing external context in which they operate;
  • Opportunities for the systematic development of the skills of objective analysis, evaluation, and presentation to enable students to develop confidence in effectively appraising and implementing management strategies;
  • An ability to apply knowledge and understanding of business and management to complex issues, both systematically and creatively, and to have a critical understanding of how business and management practice may be improved;
  • A stimulating academic environment which is based upon the values of academic openness and critical appraisal.

The programme consists of the standard 180 Level-7 credits that constitute an NQF (UK National Qualifications Framework) Masters award, the content being informed by QAA (UK Quality Assurance Agency) benchmark statements for Business and Management programmes. 60 credits of the programme are provided by a dissertation.
