What will you study?
Teaching takes place in weekday classes throughout one academic year - and weekend teaching is available for some elective modules. You will also spend a week on a field trip in Europe outside the UK, and have the opportunity to study some of your modules in Moscow, on the highest ranked MBA course in Russia. The Kingston MBA allows you to study a wider wide range of topics than you are offered on any other conventional MBA course, specialising in the areas most relevant to your career path.
Our assessment methods reflect the skills and experiences you will value the most when you graduate. We will make sure you are thoroughly prepared for your assessments, which include written assignments, discussions, group work, presentations, case studies, role plays and game simulations.
The Kingston MBA is a highly flexible programme of study. You need to gain 180 postgraduate credits overall, but you select your modules from a wide range of possibilities. This means you can specialise in the areas that are most relevant to your current and future career.
Your 180 credits break down into separate components:
100 credits. Choose 10 core modules (each worth 10 credits) from the core modules list. 40 credits. Choose four elective modules (each worth 10 credits) from the elective modules list. 40 credits. Your MBA Project – a specialised piece of research and a consulting report (dissertation). This substantial piece of work will be the culmination of all your learning on the MBA. You will have one-to-one supervision for this module and can carry out the project on a topic of your choice.
Elective modules: please note that this list is indicative. Option modules will only be run if enough students wish to study them and therefore not all of these will be run every year.
