The Oxford Brookes Global MBA develops your personal and professional expertise. Throughout the programme you'll apply what you learn, with a focus on how you perform in your current role and developing your future career.
It is a highly flexible MBA and you can choose to study online (with two compulsory face-to-face workshops) or almost entirely on-campus in Oxford, or through a blend of both.
The induction programme helps you understand the rigours of MBA study and to acquire the key study skills needed to succeed. From the start we'll teach you how to critically analyse real-world cases and the fundamentals of virtual collaboration and teamwork.
We'll encourage you to assess your career up to this point with an honest self-audit. With our support we will help you think about what you expect to get out of the MBA, and what you are able to put in.
The programme has a range of compulsory modules. While you study disciplines separately, you learn how they relate them in practice through interconnected cases and applying your knowledge through 'Leadership Engagement' challenges. During the Critical Approaches to Business module you develop the critical thinking and research skills which are essential for postgraduate studies.
After the compulsory modules, you choose two elective modules and, for the final stage of your programme, you choose an MBA project. This can be a dissertation, an individual consultancy project, a group consultancy project or a business start-up plan. Through the final project you connect the knowledge and expertise you have gained throughout the MBA by exploring an interest in depth.
Throughout your MBA studies we focus on your career development. During the Personal and Professional Development module you develop a Personal and Professional Development Journal which results in an assessed action plan for your career.
Wherever you're based in the world, we'll make your study experience highly personal and supportive, and you'll develop strong collaborative relationships with our MBA community of fellow students, alumni and academic tutors.
The Oxford Brookes Global MBA is a blended programme and you choose how you study. MBA modules can be studied online* or intensively on-campus for one-week periods or a combination of both. You can start in March or September.
