The core modules of the MBA equip you with the skills, insight and experience needed to thrive and excel in business:
-Management in a Complex World (economic, political, technological, sociological and HR perspectives on the changing world of management)
-Managing Decisions (accounting, quantitative methods and decision-making processes in organisations)
-Managing Business Resources (integrating financial, human and information resources)
-Delivering Customer Value (customer and marketing perspectives on the design of service delivery/operations management)
-Leadership and Change (organisational behaviour, culture, leadership and change management)
-Strategy (context, content and the process of strategy for delivering sustained performance)
Becoming a specialist
Building on the expertise developed in the six core modules, you choose two electives from a wide range, write a dissertation and add additional courses as required. In this way, you build an MBA designed around your career, your organisation and your future.
The programme offers full-time students the flexibility of returning to work after the taught part of the programme and conducting a collaborative dissertation with an organisation.
Development of Personal Skills
Personal Development Process (PDP) is an integral part of our MBA programme which aims to encourage and support reflective learning and confidence in setting and achieving personal goals. Extra curricular activities within this process provide you with an opportunity to develop your spiritual intelligence including the ability to deal with complexity in business, cope with stress and inspire others.
Teaching and learning
Traditional lectures will only be one part of your course. You'll also learn through syndicate work, group and individual presentations and discussion, student-led seminar groups, analysis and application of case studies as well as experiential learning and simulations including role-plays. Guest speakers from industry and professional bodies also regularly contribute to the MBA programme. These innovative methods create an environment that is enjoyable, varied and hugely effective.
Assessment is by a mixture of work-based assignments (supervised mini projects), examinations, presentations/vivas and the dissertation.
