Course content

Course in brief

Designed to broaden your horizons and build on your strengths, the Brighton MBA develops well rounded, effective managers. It is an exceptional platform for boosting your salary, rapid career progression, and developing managerial skills that will change the way you think.

It will help you develop a thorough understanding of global business, as well as up-to-date approaches to management in dynamic international contexts.

The Brighton MBA is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). All graduates gain dual awards - both an MBA and a CMI Strategic Diploma in Management and Leadership.


There are seven core modules within the programme, and one elective module to choose from. These can be completed in any order. Core modules: Accounting and performance management; developing international strategic capabilities; information systems, operations and process management; international management studies; international strategy and marketing; management environments and economics; managing innovation; managing people and organisations.
