Course content

The Salford MBA (Master of Business Administration) is our flagship programme, a fully AMBA accredited degree that concentrates on developing the wide ranging leadership and business management skills that you need to thrive at a senior level, whatever sector you work in. The AMBA accreditation is your guarantee of the quality of the programme, the teaching and the outcomes.

Studying on the Salford MBA programme means you are part of a small student cohort who work together in a supportive and collaborative environment where academics and students share their learning and build their knowledge.

The programme offers two pathways so you can follow your area of specialist interest.

Taught in four modules plus a work-based project, the MBA is delivered in a blended format. You will study three core modules then follow the specialist module for the MBA pathway you have chosen. For each of the four modules, you will spend six blocks of two days at Salford Business School. In addition, there are out-of-the-classroom activities such as company visits and guest speakers with project work to be completed in your own time.

You’ll finish your year with a three to six month consultancy project based around an issue within either your own or another organisation.

You will draw on your previous management experience to join in discussion with tutors and fellow students, then use the scholarship and research to reflect your learning back into the workplace. Our broad range of modules and unique business partnerships make this programme an ideal option for ambitious executives who are seeking to improve their knowledge across a full range of advanced skill sets.

The Strategic Leadership Pathway is our generalist career development programme aimed at motivated professionals who wish to broaden their business knowledge and reach for a senior position.

The Executive Education Leadership Pathway has been designed to equip experienced education managers with the knowledge and skills required to lead a modern academy or group of academies. Building on the Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Education Leadership, the programme will provide you with an understanding of operational and marketing issues that education managers face within the changing education environment.
