Course content

Take your career to the next level. On our MBA course you’ll develop your leadership style with hands-on, real-world assignments and a global outlook.

You’re serious about your career, and so are we. Our comprehensive Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme is designed to help you develop as an innovative and entrepreneurial leader and graduate ready to make waves in the world of business.

You’ve already immersed yourself in industry, and want a postgraduate degree that reflects your experience. That’s why we favour active learning over exams and theoretical assignments. We’ll put your communication, critical analysis and decision-making skills to the test by presenting you with real-life scenarios that expose you to alternative business practices.

One year’s work experience is required for entry onto our full-time MBA course. Entry to the placement year version of the course requires a minimum of two years’ relevant work experience and a successful interview.
