Course content

This MBA has been designed for those ready to make the leap into management roles from an existing job and those who are aspiring to become managers. The course has a particular focus on the human resource elements of business and will help you to develop the skills needed to contribute to the management and development of staff to further the organisation's goals. Importantly, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions made by organisations about their future. Applicants are welcomed from any discipline and from a wide range of job roles. Many entrants to an MBA have a science or technology qualification and so it is not necessary that you have studied business or management before.
