The framework for the Management for Business Excellence degree is the European Excellence Model, created to help organisations develop towards the achievement of sustainable excellence.
MBE is an innovative Master's degree in Management, designed for those who want to become effective leaders and managers of business excellence in industry.
It is suitable for high achievers who want to be challenged in the way they think about business management and problem solving. The course is all about understanding how organisations work; it takes a holistic look at organisations, the inter-relationships between departments within them, and how to optimise the use of available resources.
Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to progress the capabilities of organisations, by making decisions on improvement, and by understanding how these decisions will affect departments within the business.
Designed to deliver a detailed understanding of the philosophies, strategies, processes and techniques that enable change and deliver business excellence, this course will provide you with a distinctly different learning experience to what you will have previously been used to.
The style of learning is active. You will make choices about what you wish to learn and you will decide how best to achieve your learning objectives; all of this will be facilitated by our expert MBE course tutors. Teamwork plays a central role throughout the course. By working collaboratively with your international colleagues, you’ll develop a rich, global perspective.
Through classroom simulations, you’ll generate credible and practical solutions to real-business problems. Most importantly, you’ll learn to think critically about topics and issues that come to the fore; challenging views and growing both as an individual and as a leader of business.
Using a range of blended learning approaches, including e-learning, students are provided with a rich learning environment in which you will develop a deep understanding of content. The programme is supported by tutorials and seminars to discuss and explore web-based content.
