Entry requirements

This course is aimed at individuals seeking to develop their careers in business and management. You don’t need a business management degree, but you will need sufficient work experience and be able to contribute insights in class discussions.

You will be required to have:

  • a minimum of a 2.2 for an honours degree in any subject discipline (or equivalent)
  • a minimum of two years’ work experience, which may have been gained during undergraduate study
  • a detailed personal statement that includes why you are applying and any relevant skills, experience or achievements that make you suitable for the course

An equivalent alternative to a degree would include a professional qualification at Level 6 or above from professional institutions such as the Chartered Management Institute, the Chartered Institute of Marketing, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants or the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

You should also submit a full CV comprising:

  • Work experience – List your most recent position first, continuing in reverse chronological order including the name, location, website and dates of your employment for each company you have worked for. Aim to use bullet points wherever possible to highlight your responsibilities and achievements in each role.
  • Education – In reverse chronological order, give brief details of your academic and professional qualifications along with the grades you achieved.
  • Skills – Eg include every IT package or programme you’ve got experience of using, as well as any foreign language skills. Skills such as communication and project management are harder to substantiate and should be backed up with examples.

Course content

Why you should study this course

Based on feedback from large organisations and business entrepreneurs, our MBA course has been adapted to suit the ever-changing business climate.

You’ll develop your understanding of business operations, the external factors affecting these organisations, plus how they can be managed effectively during various current and emerging issues.

This course is designed to prepare you for greater management responsibility, switching industries or starting your own business.

More about this course

This Master of Business Administration incorporates feedback from the industry to ensure the content is relevant to the current business market. Our aim is for you to graduate with a broad understanding of how businesses function, how they are managed and how they are governed. This will prepare you for a leadership role and more responsibility, or to go on and create your own business.

You’ll refine your complex problem solving skills, learn how to make decisions in uncertain times and with incomplete data, as well as developing your critical thinking abilities. In addition to this, you’ll also improve the essential ‘soft’ skills needed of managers and leaders such as communication, negotiation, networking and team building.

A key element of our MBA is its focus on making sense of the current volatile and uncertain business world. You’ll study the impact of accelerating climate change, technology development and global politics on the UK’s business economy.

Insights into the wider role of businesses in addressing societal problems in a sustainable manner will also develop your understanding of ethical management and governance, preparing you for an exciting career ahead.
