Course content

The Aston Executive Part-Time MBA programme allows you to combine study with a full-time career. You'll learn over a longer period through online workshops as well as termly weekend residentials at Aston Business School. This gives you the opportunity to apply your new skills as you learn.

Modules are assessed by individual assignments and group work where you will have the opportunity to analyse complex business problems. The course concludes with a major project which allows you to put you rnew knowledge into practice. This can be approached in a number of ways including a live consultancy project with a business, a themed reserach project, producing a business plan for a start-up, or writing a report about a company you are working nor interning at.

You'll combine several weekend residentails at Aston Business School per year, supported by the Aston interactive online learning platform, where you can engage with module content, participate in live seminars and communicate with your peers.
