Course content

An MBA is still as relevant as ever for those wanting to advance their business, management and leadership skills to further their career. Our flexible mode of studying means you can gain a professionally-recognised qualification while continuing to work.

Why study the MBA (Global Online) at Middlesex?

With an emphasis on practice, our MBA focuses on key management disciplines including financial and economic analysis, strategy and innovation, managing and developing people, global marketing management, operations and supply chain management, and cross-cultural management and ethics.

In your second year, you have the option to study a specialist elective online in place of one of the core modules as well as join other MBA students on a consulting project (for an additional fee) working in the field to address an organisational or industry-based challenge.

Your MBA culminates in a final project where you have the option to develop your consulting skills, write a business plan or engage in a more traditional academic report.
