Course content

Studied on campus or 100% online, this MBA course aims to teach students how to respond to the needs of the modern world by thinking critically and strategically in seeking solutions to complex problems.

Are you looking for a career change or to develop your career? Are you considering a move into management? In today’s globally connected environment, the work of a manager needs to be ethically driven and culturally sensitive. The MBA course aims to help towards establishing better career prospects and salary, upon successful completion. By studying at Coventry Business School, you will have access to professional management coaches, research active staff, and have the opportunity to engage with fellow candidates, who could be drawn from across a range of sectors. We also have expertise in delivering leadership programmes, and have won recent contracts with public and private sector firms, including the Cabinet Office, to develop their current and future leaders.

The course will also support you to clarify and develop your career goals as you progress through and encourage reflection on how your goals might be met.

You can also study the MBA course on campus or online, either as a comprehensive management and leadership programme or with specialised pathways in Cyber Security Management sector, Sustainable Tourism, Artificial Intelligence, Marketing or for the Healthcare Sector.

Please note that upon successful completion, on your final award certificate for this course, the course title will be Master of Business Administration and will not refer to the pathway studied, while your transcript will cite the modules studied and will not make reference to the pathway chosen.

The MBA programme consists of three distinct but interconnected stages:

Certificate - The modern enterprise and business environment – how does it work?

The Certificate phase aims to develop a resource-based view of the business enterprise and examine how value is created, including the impact of the wider business environment on the enterprise’s value creation activities.

Diploma - Preparing for tomorrow – what needs to change?

In the Diploma stage the focus shifts to consider a manager’s role in developing enterprises that consider internal and external contexts, with the goal for them to create sustainable value.

Masters – Management in action – bringing about change

The Masters phase of the programme focuses more specifically on particular sectors and/or roles, allowing you the chance to complete a comprehensive general management programme or choose to specialise in artificial intelligence or healthcare management. The emphasis will be on exploring, critically evaluating and applying a range of sector/ role specific models and concepts within a practice setting. The course provides you with the opportunity to clarify and explore your career goals as you progress and encourages reflection on how your goals might be met.
