Course summary

An MBA is an internationally recognised passport to a successful management career. You will consider and apply business theory to the world of work, deepening and widening your understanding of the organisation and the environment in which it operates. Our MBA is designed to introduce you to the essential areas of business and management. The full-time MBA is a broad, general management qualification covering finance, marketing, economics, strategy, leadership, organisational behaviour, and operations management. You will be joining a diverse international student body and as such you will experience different cultures and ideas and develop an international network of like-minded individuals. Students have used the MBA to change direction, build on their primary degree or to enhance their skillset before embarking on their chosen profession. Research carried out by the Association of MBAs and the Ulster University Business School demonstrates that MBA graduates’ benefit from investing in their studies both financially and in terms of their career. IMPORTANT: A number of courses will be transitioning to the Belfast Campus. The new campus is on schedule to open its doors and welcome students from September 2021. With the impact of COVID-19 prevailing into 2021, the University is working closely with contractors to mitigate any impact of the pandemic on the opening date.
