Course content

The University of Greenwich has a long history of management education, and the MBA draws on decades of professional experience.

Our London based MBA is an internationally recognised Master's degree in business administration and management. We focus on developing your knowledge in business strategy and change management.

If you do not have a first degree in business then our MBA will give you solid grounding in business management, which will be followed by specialised international business courses, specialist projects and a guided internship.

We have structured our degree to allow you to follow your own professional interests, through a research project and professional practice. You can start your studies in September or January.

Skills development

You will develop critical analytical skills in assessing the global environment for business; identifying new international business opportunities and analysing international markets and industries; dealing with complex issues both systematically and creatively; and communicating clearly to many audiences.

You will also reflect the increased emphasis on multidisciplinary and international perspective arising from today's market developments and explores the complexity and diversity of business in an increasingly interconnected world.

Internship

The 11-month internship (which you will need to secure) enables you to apply your knowledge and gain practical experience with a company of your choice, in the UK or overseas.

The internship will help you to put into practice skills developed in communication, numeracy and problem-solving within a professional context, and to build your sense of business values and integrity.
