Small and Medium Enterprise Management, MBA
Research shows that both students and employers want management education to be relevant to the work environment. Flexible delivery of learning is also a key desire of employers and of mature students who may be working full time and balancing work-life with home-life and academic study. This is true for all sizes of organisations, but particularly true for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) where time-off for traditional study is difficult to organise. This programme offers the opportunity to achieve this flexibility whilst delivering management education relevant to the workplace and with recognised qualifications.
The MBA programme has modular options which allow specialisation to meet the needs of individual students who intend to take up senior positions in organisations, including specialisation for SMEs. Students who do not meet the requirements for direct entry may access the programme via the PGDip Management Studies programme, which also allows entry to the MA Management programme.
Students build on their knowledge from the work environment and previous learning, whilst developing a critical theoretical perspective which will inform their own developing management practice. The programme aims to advance an individual’s knowledge of management and business administration and develop strategic thinking.
Study is modular with only occasional limited requirement to meet with tutors face-to-face. The majority of study is undertaken under tutor direction by students at their own time and place supported via the university's online resources and Virtual Learning Environment.
