Course content

Designed for professionals who wish to progress in their career, our Public Services Management MBA will develop your leadership potential in the public sector, cultivating the analytical skills and entrepreneurial thinking employers are looking for from their senior management.

This course will help you address the complex organisational issues experienced in the fast-changing political and global environment which public services and not-for-profit organisations face.

Case studies and professional work-based projects will enable you to practically apply your new skills to the benefit of employers. Guest speakers, industry visits and attending core modules with a mix of full-time, part-time and international students will provide you with a wider perspective and exposure to different cultures as experiences are shared.

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the only chartered professional body in the field of management and leadership, you will graduate with a degree as well as the CMI’s Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership.

During your studies, you will benefit from free membership of both the Institute of Directors and the Chartered Management Institute. Our partnership with professional associations ensures the Brighton MBA remains relevant to the needs of today's business practitioners.
