Full time degree. Part time hours.

Considering part-time study or need a little more structure? Our campus-based blended learning gives you all of the same great support and innovative online learning access, with the addition of regular, structured face to face seminars. Blended study is ideal if you want the campus experience or structure that comes with traditional face-to face teaching, but can’t fit in the full time commitment.

Our ground breaking ‘compressed blended’ model enables you to complete full three-year degree, with just 2 days face to face commitment per week in one of our study centres.

Interact with your peers and tutors for seminars, discussions and progress reviews on your study days on campus. Then use our always-on virtual classroom to progress your learning and work through assignments whenever and wherever it suits you. Have a burning question outside of your regular class? Don’t worry, you will still have access to your tutors and support team by email and phone.

Designed for practising managers looking to take the step upwards to a strategic role, this MBA provides a distinctive way of developing your achievements and thinking. Delivered in our London Study Centre (Ealing Green College) over two years, with one three-hour evening session a week, this programme has the added value of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) accreditation. CMI promotes excellence in UK management and leadership and this course is your pathway to success.

We believe that modern leadership requires holistic management skills that apply to a range of business functions and themes. Following consultation with our international alumni and employers, we have developed this MBA to build and hone your broad management skills for delivering strategy and change within the complex landscape of modern business.

So you’ll consider your own role as manager and at how you lead people as well as develop a strategic awareness of the commercial environment in which you operate. The development and implementation of strategy and how you can sustain both yourself and the organisation you manage in the future are further themes you will explore. Within this framework you will study the key management functions, such as marketing, finance and HRM but in a way that shows how they relate to each other - with plenty of opportunities to apply your learning to your own workplace and learn from your fellow classmates.

Our modern, international approach means your MBA will stand out and appeal to employers all over the world.

Modules:

● Personal & business transformation

● Ethical leadership

● Managing within a competitive environment

● Leading transitions

● Implementing strategy

● Sustaining the business

● Research project

Assessments:

Assessments are designed to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your strengths in a number of ways and so a variety of methods are used. A critical element of the assessment strategy is that you’ll have the chance to apply your learning directly into your day to day role. A vital part of your work will be the opportunity to create and take ownership of a detailed piece of research relating to a management issue. To support your development, we will provide you with academic and pastoral support on campus and online to make sure you have the skills in place to successfully complete every assessment you submit. Your tutor will be able to give you suggestions and tips for improvement and help you understand how to apply your newly-acquired skills into real life settings.

This interdisciplinary programme unites the expertise of three schools - the School of Sociology and Social Policy, the Business School and the School of Politics and International Studies, allowing you to study a broad range of modules which will enhance your knowledge of public administration and policy analysis in varying contexts of global and local challenges.

The programme will equip you with the necessary skills to take up a senior position in public administration. You will acquire a mastery of the diverse range of problems that public administration professionals face in the contemporary socio-economic climate and an in-depth understanding of the contested nature of debates in social and public policy.

Throughout the course you will be introduced to and debate the challenges, opportunities, understandings and approaches to managing such issues as ageing populations, social inclusion, migration, unemployment, health, inequality, sustainability and resilience, drawing on the insights and experiences of public and third sector leaders from across the globe.

A key part of the programme is its vocational element which enables you to apply your acquired knowledge to real life situations through project work linked to partner organisations. Throughout the course you will be exposed to a wide variety of the challenges, issues and problems that individuals engaged in public administration face and you will be supported to develop a portfolio of project work tailored to your own interests and career aspirations.

Highlights

Throughout the course you will take a range of modules from across the three schools. One of the compulsory modules is the MPA Project Labs module which represents the vocational element of the course, designed to replace the traditional dissertation.

The MPA Project Labs will run across all three semesters, giving you the unique opportunity to conduct independently designed project work anchored in collaboration with a partner organisation, enabling you to apply the advanced skills and attributes developed across the programme. The module will be supported by workshops on public administration scenarios and challenges by academic leaders and guest speakers, including professionals and officials with different roles in the public and third sector; workshops on research and impact; problem-focused group work; and one-to-one project supervisions.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of- the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

Your programme of study

A good MBA can really make you stand out for the top jobs in any type of business in fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area. You develop insights across the top discipline functions such as finance, strategy, economics and project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines within themselves which you rapidly acquire skills and knowledge to manage successfully. These are essential disciplines to many known high street brands, service industries, online businesses and high growth start ups which ensure that if you start a business using existing skills or a new team that you are likely to provide a high growth enterprise very quickly. Alternatively you may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real threat to business existence which involves you in making changes very quickly at operational level using the range of disciplines you learn.

In this situation you can overcome the threats quickly to ensure long term viability whilst managing short term risks to business and you can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction.

The Global MBA is ideal if you are a working professional, you want to change direction, you want to add business skills to pursue an enterprise or you have other commitments which prevent you from studying at a University campus. It is delivered by one of the ancient universities in the UK in partnership with IDI
