Course summary

Why study this course? Based on feedback from large organisations and business entrepreneurs, our MBA course has been adapted to suit the ever-changing business climate. You’ll develop your understanding of business operations, the external factors affecting these organisations, plus how they can be managed effectively during various current and emerging issues. This course is designed to prepare you for greater management responsibility, switching industries or starting your own business. How the course works Each module runs once a year and takes five weeks to complete. You do not need to take the modules in a particular order, so you can join the course at the start of each module, rather than having to wait to join the course at traditional entry points in September and January. You can simply start in the available month that most suits you, and the course will then take one year to complete on a full-time basis or up to three years on a part-time basis. More about this course This Master of Business Administration incorporates feedback from the industry to ensure the content is relevant to the current business market. Our aim is for you to graduate with a broad understanding of how businesses function, how they are managed and how they are governed. This will prepare you for a leadership role and more responsibility, or to go on and create your own business. You’ll refine your complex problem solving skills, learn how to make decisions in uncertain times and with incomplete data, as well as developing your critical thinking abilities. In addition to this, you’ll also improve the essential ‘soft’ skills needed of managers and leaders such as communication, negotiation, networking and team building. A key element of our MBA is its focus on making sense of the current volatile and uncertain business world. You’ll study the impact of accelerating climate change, technology development and global politics on the UK’s business economy. Insights into the wider role of businesses in addressing societal problems in a sustainable manner will also develop your understanding of ethical management and governance, preparing you for an exciting career ahead.
