MBA (full-time)

Course Description

Our full-time MBA programme is focused on strategic and international business. As such there are four distinctive and challenging enterprise projects working closely with businesses in the UK and worldwide. This includes our International Business Experience module and the International Management Challenge. Our approach on the programme is to constantly apply theory to practice in order to develop your career in international business leadership. Twelve modules are taken and a dissertation is submitted to complete the requirements for the award of the MBA degree. There are compulsory core modules and an extensive range of elective options.

Depending on the options taken, you can focus on a special field in one of the following areas: Marketing; Finance; International Trade and Finance; Human Resource Management, and Organisational Behaviour.

A range of teaching and learning methods are used to relate theory to practical situations. Important business skills such as analysis, argument and synthesis are developed. Personal leadership skills are enhanced through a series of modules in areas such as leadership, team dynamics and cross-cultural understanding. These take place at the University and residential off-campus locations.
