Our MBA programme is available via three distinct learning pathways; The Salford MBA, MBA: Digital Business and MBA: Sports Business. Each pathway has been formulated in partnership with our leading research centres to impart the latest in academic theory and professional practice.
The course comprises of four blocks of two day intensive study periods, followed by independent study and online support through the University's virtual learning environment, Blackboard.
Each module is taken and assessed over a six week block. In the final semester, you will act as a consultant to an external organisation, providing advice and solutions for a real business problem.
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.
