Our Accelerated MBA – the first of its kind in the UK – is a 10 month intensive programme which allows busy working professionals to return to work to complete a management project after only eight months out of the office. It attracts high calibre professionals with drive, energy and commitment from around the world
Accelerated MBA students benefit from working in small learning sets and mixing with students from other programmes and disciplines. This provides excellent opportunities for networking.
Accommodation is reserved on our Bradford campus for students on the Accelerated MBA so that they can take full advantage of the learning support, careers services and networking opportunities available during their time with us.
All our MBA programmes are made up of three stages
Core modules – designed to help you get back in to learning and provide fundamental knowledge of management principles and theory Elective modules – provide an in-depth understanding of specialist topics that are essential and relevant to the contemporary commercial world focused on sustainability Management project – enables you to put the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme to practical use on a relevant management issue The Accelerated MBA programme begins with a week-long induction, designed to accelerate you back into learning and help you get to know your fellow students. Accelerated MBA students take elective modules focused on sustainability and sustainable development.
Many of the modules are provided in a block-week format solely for the Accelerated MBA students, whilst others are held during the day or in the evening with our Full-time MBA and Executive MBA students.
