Course content

Our Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programme is designed to advance your academic knowledge and develop your career prospects.

It is aimed at graduates of any discipline who have an interest in developing their understanding of leading a business, have aspirations to run their own business, or are motivated to move away from a functional specialism into general management. The three themes of internationalisation, employability and sustainability are central to the programme design and to your experience as a student.

Specific exposure to the international business context will be provided through links to live case studies to enable you to gain an appreciation of real business contexts. Additionally, the programme will examine management decision making at a strategic level and you will gain the necessary skills to become a well-rounded business leader. You will also develop a critical awareness of operating as a leader in a sustainable and ethical business.

The internship

An optional internship (up to 6 months in duration) is available to all students, taking place on completion of the taught modules. This internship will not be credit-rated but will allow the student to gain first-hand experience within a real business environment to enhance their future employability. Students may also choose to make use of this opportunity to base their Research Project on a business-related issue arising during the internship. There may be possibilities, with the employer’s permission, to gain access to research participants and primary data, and to apply their understanding of theories and principles discussed within their programme to a live organisational setting.

Securing the internship is the responsibility of the students to arrange and is not necessarily paid. Students who request the internship option will need to secure this by a specified deadline. If the deadline isn't met, the course will revert to the route without internship .
