Course content

Why take this course?

For working professionals, this part-time Master’s in Business Administration degree course develops your leadership and management skills so you can fulfil your career ambitions.

It provides access to development opportunities at postgraduate level for senior managers and those aspiring to senior management in private, public and third sector organisations.

It allows you to develop your capabilities as a leader and manager, gives you the confidence to improve your performance and can transform your future by developing the skills to progress your career and increase your impact.

Many students who graduate from this course accelerate their careers and progress into senior management and leadership positions. Others choose new directions, including launching their own business ventures.

After you complete the course, you can apply through the ‘qualified route' to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to become a Chartered Member (CMg MCMI) or a Chartered Fellow (CMgr FCMI), depending on your experience. We will provide you with further information about the options available and the processes involved during the course. 

Benefits for employers

MBA students have increased capabilities, confidence and morale as they learn the skills required to develop into senior leaders.

They transfer the knowledge and the skills they develop during the course to the workplace. This supports talent management initiatives and develops organisational capability.

Degree apprenticeship option

We also offer a degree apprenticeship MBA Strategic Leadership course at the University of Portsmouth. The entry requirements are the same for both courses and both enable participants to achieve a globally recognised business management degree.

You can also achieve a professional Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification after completing the MBA Strategic Leadership degree apprenticeship.

The key differences with the degree apprenticeship option are:

  • Students complete the degree apprenticeship course as a degree apprentice, which offers day release to attend classes.
  • Students don’t pay their tuition fees on degree apprenticeships – they’re funded by the apprenticeship levy fund or the student’s employer and the Government.

What will I experience?

  • Integrated management subjects – links theory and research to management practice
  • Applied project – delivers practical value for your own organisation or another as you analyse a particular challenge and opportunity and provide useful recommendations
  • Integrated strategy project – hones your analytical and research skills and brings together your knowledge and learning from various units
  • Guest lectures and business events sponsored by the Faculty of Business and Law – learn from industry experts while expanding your network

What opportunities might it lead to?

The MBA programme is a transformational journey.

Some MBA graduates accelerate their careers by progressing to more senior levels of leadership. Others use the MBA to prepare for their next career change, such as exploring the potential of entrepreneurship to set up their own business.
