MBA - Full Time


Course Description

Study for the MBA, the world’s most renowned business management qualification, via an intensive 12 month programme at Lancashire Business School. Designed for those who have already started their career, and have worked for at least two years in a managerial, technical and professional role, the MBA programme provides you with a rigorous postgraduate business and management education, enabling you to develop alongside other managers and business professionals from a wide range of backgrounds.

You will be taught by highly experienced and qualified tutors and will gain a thorough grounding in the key aspects of business management, including accounting & finance, marketing, human resource management, operations management, management techniques, strategy and international management, new business venture development, knowledge management in a global context and business and management research methods. You will also complete an MBA dissertation, which will involve planning and implementing a research study on a business and management topic, working closely with your supervisor. Throughout the programme, you will learn in a wide variety of ways – through lectures and seminars, case studies and projects, the analysis of live issues and problems, using up-to-date materials and research studies, and from the experiences of your fellow students who come from a wide range of backgrounds, countries and cultures.

The MBA will challenge you to develop your ability to operate effectively in a demanding business and management environment. It will also give you a competitive edge in the global job market and will without doubt enhance your career prospects.

The programme provides a rigorous process of personal and managerial development, in which you are encouraged and expected to make your own unique contribution. The course requires you to develop and maintain sound working relationships with a diverse group of colleagues and will provide you with opportunities to reflect upon existing behaviour and attitudes in the light of challenging business and management concepts and frameworks.

Stage one modules give a rigorous grounding in the main business management subjects, whilst in Stage two you will build upon and extend your knowledge and understanding by taking modules focusing on the strategic management and change management processes. This includes the investigation of live strategic issues and problems in an organisation through a double module on change management. Assessment is by reports and essays - there are no formal examinations. Finally, a dissertation in Stage three provides you with the opportunity to personalise your programme of studies by planning and implementing a research study into a topic or issue related to business management. Probably the major achievement of all MBA graduates, it represents a unique opportunity to study a subject or issue related to business management in great depth and an ideal opportunity to personalise your study programme reflecting your own interests and career aspirations.

A distinctive feature of the programme is that you can participate in an exciting residential weekend at the start of your course, engaging in outdoor management development activities and getting to know your fellow students. Another distinctive feature is the international study visit held in various European locations. Typically, this will give you the chance to visit business organisations and to discuss with their management teams the current issues facing them as they strive for competitive success.

Chaitanya Bal

The MBA has immensely widened my career prospects. Apart from obtaining a Masters qualification, it has helped me improve my skills in critical thinking, team working, report writing, sales, networking, and so on. This has made my profile more appealing to employers from diverse sectors, ranging from management consultancy, retail management to social enterprises.

Since I left UCLan, my career has progressed in strategic management and consultancy. I thoroughly enjoy working as a management consultant and the MBA prepared me well for this role through practical modules which tested my skills in the outside world.

The modules and teachers were the best part of the course. I loved being involved in discussions with my tutors, who were highly experienced and broadened my outlook further. I also found the residential sessions in the first term and the international residential visit in the second term exciting and informative.

I would highly recommend the UCLan MBA to other students. The modules and the course structure are challenging and rewarding and are frequently updated to match current trends in the industry and economic market. This makes the MBA a very hands-on experience which prepares you well for your life after the course.
