Course content

Aimed at Directors and Senior Managers in the private, public or third sectors, the Executive MBA has been designed to support your career progression, preparing you to successfully carry out senior strategic roles or to build your own business.

You will study with a cohort of experienced professionals, building your network and giving you insights into best practice internationally. As a consequence, you will explore issues that have significant impact within organisations by working with others, building on personal experiences and comparing and contrasting them with those of your cohort members. In addition you will be able to apply the knowledge and skills you develop during the programme immediately in the workplace. You will carry out projects and assignments and participate in competitions and business simulations, designed to help you apply the theories, tools and techniques you learn.

You will develop a critical understanding of the issues relating to business and management, which will enhance your ability to maximise individual and organisational potential. The Executive MBA brings together contemporary academic theory and research with a practical understanding of activities within organisations. This will be developed by enabling you to share knowledge, relate this to theories developed from relevant research, and learn by practical application.

The Executive MBA has been designed to meet the requirements of the Level 7 Senior Leader Masters degree apprenticeship. Subject to eligibility, your organisation may be able to use their apprenticeship levy to cover the costs of this course.

When you finish this apprenticeship you will receive:

  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • CMI Level 7 Diploma
  • Professional Chartered Manager status
  • Senior Leaders Masters degree apprenticeship
