Course content

The MBA is focused on the real needs of business and will provide you with an opportunity to develop your understanding of the key knowledge and skills required to succeed in today’s challenging business world, when it's going to be harder and harder to move up without a higher-level qualification.

Although the programme is aimed at working professionals, with significant business experience, there is still a lot to learn. We will explore both the practical and theoretical aspects of business, broadening and deepening your knowledge – and focusing on powerful business insights – many of them newly emerging business models that will shape tomorrow. Just like our students will.

During your studies, you will learn about data management for better decision-making and operations management, as well as going on to work on strategy formulation and implementation.

You will work on your personal development: skills, style, and leadership. You are prepared to mature as a manager and become able to lead, motivate and manage.

But we do all this in a refreshingly different way. Our MBA is not about business dogma. It’s about getting you to challenge the way business is done and find new, more effective, more creative ways of doing it.

The MBA Faculty use a range of different methods to engage you, with an emphasis on experiential learning. These range from formal lectures, group discussions, industry-real role-plays, simulation exercises, case study analysis and project work. You will take cutting edge modules during our summer school which is led by visiting scholars as well as staff.

Our MBA attracts talented people from different industries, from all over the world. In this way, you will be able to learn from your classmates, share ideas, create professional networks and make friendships which last well beyond the academic experience.
