Months of entry
The MBA with Professional Placement at UCLan allows you to study for one of the most respected business management qualifications via an intensive 2-year postgraduate course at the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise. This programme is specifically designed for those wishing to either establish or sustain a successful managerial or professional career in business. The course curriculum, whilst offering a broad grounding in management, does keenly focus on leadership and strategic management aspects that often distinguish MBAs from other master's programmes.
Prior management experience is not an essential requirement for this course, as a professional placement of 6-10 months is incorporated into the second year of study. Students apply for paid positions on a competitive basis and secure positions through their own efforts. Some assistance in preparation for applying for placements will be provided, however placements are paid employment and the employer has the final say. The work undertaken by the student must be of an adequate standard in an area of work strongly related to the content of the MBA Programme and the appropriateness of any placement will be assessed and approved by a member of the academic team on an individual basis.
Information for international students
