Corporate Financial Strategy
Portfolio Management & Investment Analysis

A fundamental part of your development as a manager is participation in group work. Our approach to management training is that the most effective way to accelerate learning and management skills is to work with talented peers from many different professional and cultural backgrounds, combined with close interaction with the academic staff.
Finally, you will be asked to choose to write and be assessed on either a disseration on a business topic of your choice, or a group consultancy project (with an individual critique/analysis).
There are two variants of the University of Nottingham MBA in Singapore, the General MBA and the Financial MBA, each of which consists of 12 modules and a dissertation and can be completed on a part-time basis within two to four years.
Both variants are fully taught by University of Nottingham faculty through classroom lectures in Singapore.
The core modules ensure that all participants study essential areas of management. The dissertation or project will allow you to build on these fundamental areas and focus on a topic that is relevant to your place of work, your interests and career aspirations.
Each module is usually completed within a week with taught sessions taking place on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 5.30pm, and Mondays to Thursdays from 7pm to 10pm.
You will be given about six months to complete your dissertation after Module 12. This is an in-depth management dissertation, normally related to a practical issue within your own organisation.
Each module will be assessed based on an examination held two to three weeks after the end of the module, together with assignments and project work.
The MBAs are subject to continuous quality review via External Examiners in other Business Schools who assess the quality of draft examination papers, examination and coursework scripts and dissertations.
This course is also offered at the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee campus in the UK or at our campus in Malaysia.
