The AMBA-accredited Hull Executive MBA (EMBA) transforms you into a strategic and responsible leader through our business relevant, internationally recognised programme. You will be challenged to think critically to enhance your effectiveness both personally and professionally, developing the skills and understanding required to operate in a complex global business environment. Teaching is informed by globally recognised research and led by academics with industry experience. Having access to excellent facilities across the University, you and your fellow EMBA students will remain together as a team throughout the programme, learning from each other and enlarging your professional network. With modules taking place in three day blocks (Wednesday to Friday), every 6 weeks, this allows you to fit your studies around work and other commitments. There are two main study variants: The traditional EMBA option or the 'Senior Leader- degree apprenticeship' route. Within these, a range of pathways are available, including General Management, Health and Social Care, and Technology Management. We can also respond to industry demand and work with organisations to develop new pathways.

We have devised the Hull MBA to ensure your learning is rooted in theory and yet focused on practice and practical applications. To facilitate this, the Hull MBA concentrates on five 'big ideas'. • Connected thinking Modern business organisations require solid accounting, creative marketing and reliable logistics. Customers expect that the various elements will be drawn together to provide an overall product or service. • Responsible leadership Throughout the MBA, you will consider the complex nature of managerial work and will develop and demonstrate leadership competencies • Advocacy Management hinges on the art of persuasion. Competence in business is founded on functional forms of business knowledge such as accounting, finance and human resource management – yet managerial success is rooted in a broader set of skills and attributes. • Leadership styles The Hull MBA acknowledges the aspiration of universal agreement yet recognises difference, dissent and conflict as potentially powerful forces for development and change. • Problem identification The Hull MBA encourages a focus on the problem identification rather than the pursuit of solutions.
