Master of Business Administration
The MBA brings to the fore current thinking in management education and will develop critical thinkers with effective problem solving skills at managerial level. An induction programme covers the fundamentals of management education - a refresher for business graduates or an introduction for non-business graduates. Core modules then broaden and critically examine key business and management fundamentals, integrated by modules in strategic management, the linchpin modules equipping participants with the ability to think conceptually and holistically. Participants will also undertake several optional modules, allowing for focus in a particular field such as finance, HRM or marketing, or a more general management focus. The In-company Project option is an alternative to the traditional research-based dissertation and offers participants the challenging opportunity to complete a 12 week strategic management project based in a UK company or organisation. In addition to this option students will have the opportunity (but not the necessity) to link their project or dissertation to a 3-month or 12-month work placement. The Leicester Business School MBA is competitively priced.
