Course content

Our MBA provides a rigorous and challenging business and management education, where you will develop alongside other experienced managers and business professionals. It is a demanding but rewarding programme that will give you the skills and knowledge to progress your career to more senior levels or give you a steppingstone to a new career.

The programme is designed to integrate your own learning and development in a work-based situation into six core modules of academic theory and practice. You will complete individual and group-based assignments that will develop your knowledge and understanding of the materials covered and how these apply in an organisational context.

There will also be a case-study/presentation project enabling you to apply a range of theories and knowledge to a real problem in your organisation, allowing you to reflect on your own management style and organisational performance.
