Course summary

The Leeds MBA begins with an induction that will ensure you gain the most from your MBA experience. You are introduced to the learning culture and the study skills you’ll need to succeed. Through a variety of taught modules, you’ll gain an understanding of the key components of business management – marketing, accounting, finance, operations and human resource management, etc. Alongside these subjects we explore how to manage and lead people in organisations, through modules in decision making, organisational behaviour, strategy, entrepreneurship and leading in practice. You’ll also build your appreciation of the wider business environment through modules such as international management and the economics of strategy. During the programme you’ll apply your new skills and knowledge as you complete two live challenges. The course culminates in your MBA Project, giving you the opportunity to turn your knowledge into practice that relates to your own ambitions. Your project can be desk-based if you want to research a topic in-depth, or you can work on a live management issue with an external organisation to develop links with employers and industry. If you’re planning to start your own company, you could even put together a comprehensive business plan.
