Course summary

The MBA programme is a transformational experience with a focus on practical application through integrated learning and live case studies. The first six months are designed to provide a solid foundation to build your understanding and knowledge of different business themes with integration weeks to put theory into practice. The latter part allows you to tailor your learning specifically to your needs with electives and transition careers with a major piece of self-managed consultancy. Alongside this, we place a strong emphasis on developing a range of soft skills preparing you for future challenges in a competitive global business environment.


Core General Management: Block 1: Strategy and Organisations; Block 2: The Financial Environment; Block 3: Creating Management Advantage; Block 4: Knowledge and Policy; and Strategy Project. Elective modules cover the following areas: Consulting and Strategy; Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Finance; General Management; and Marketing. There are also several international modules available, including a UAE International Study Tour, China International Study Tour and Strategic Marketing in Action: Exploring Location Brands.

Assessment method

The MBA programme allows you to tailor your skills and learning around a Core General Management Programme. This will develop your core knowledge and skills in business and management giving you the base skill set to succeed for the remainder of the course. It's your Full-time MBA programme and we give you every opportunity to tailor its content through a wide choice of electives, a personal and professional development programme and one-to-one career coaching so that your MBA course takes you where you want to go not just after your MBA, but over the lifetime of your career.
