The first six weeks are taught through block delivery to give you a solid foundation in the project, and the final six weeks are supervised on the business related project. Teaching is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials, and employs a range of learning activities. The course includes a one week study trip to a European or international business school to develop your awareness of national and international business.

Career potential

Employability is an important focus of the MBA and many Salford graduates go on to leading roles in large multinational organisations, as Chief Operating Officers or Senior Vice- Presidents. Others develop their own organisations and take on the role of Managing Director within those.

(Student Profile)

Lava Mohamad

“The Salford MBA definitely has had a lot of benefits. The first was that my employer promoted me to a much higher status. What I liked the most about the MBA was that we had many students from different backgrounds and different age groups. I have learned a lot from my fellow colleagues as they had different views about the business world and this was very interesting; we had doctors, pharmacists, senior project managers and many more. I particularly enjoyed the case studies as we were put in groups and had to work together and try to appreciate each other’s ideas. I was proud to be awarded the 2016 MBA Student-of-the-Year Award.”

Fred Ogunoye

“I enjoyed the Business Innovation Live Project (BILP) the most. This took place during the last semester for three months. It was work based and it gave good experience to enhance my CV. It allowed for creativity and development of new skills and I finished with the highest scores in the semester.”
