Course content

This demanding three year part-time management programme will help you develop into an effective manager or professional working in a business management context. One of the benefits of studying at Lancashire Business School is the chance to network and complete group focused tasks with like-minded colleagues. Many of our past students comment on the advantages of sharing insights, reflecting on experiences and the business growth opportunities that arise from such important connections.

During year one you will be able to gain a thorough grounding in the key aspects of business management. In summary, you will learn about:

  • Management theory and practice
  • Human resource management
  • Marketing principles and concepts
  • Accounting and finance
  • Management environment
  • Strategic management

In year two you will learn about:

  • Strategic management
  • Change management
  • Business and management research methods

Finally, during year three, you have the opportunity to complete the MBA Dissertation which will involve you in planning and implementing a research study on an approved topic within the area of business management. This provides an ideal opportunity to personalise your study programme reflecting your own interests, and current and possible future work context. For many on the MBA, this is the opportunity to most strongly relate your studies with issues being faced by your current employer enabled a useful pay-back to be achieved for hopefully their support during the Programme.
