Course summary

MBAs equip managers with a broad and rich understanding of business, enabling them to lead effectively. This online MBA in Business Scale Up focuses on the key areas a business would need to investigate to assess scale up potential. The course combines core management disciplines from the key QAA and CMI benchmark statements with recent national research on the drivers of business scale up. The course is structured in four phases. The first phase provides an intensive focused range of interventions aimed at realising the potential of growth within businesses. Stages two and three then draw on these to analyse ideas and develop them further to plan and enable accelerated growth. Finally, after these phases, a strategic project builds the evidence base for scale up strategies and addresses a significant and strategic area for your business. This course will give you the confidence and resilience to respond to continually developing circumstances, the skills to build and lead a team, and the theoretical and practical knowledge to successfully manage through the pressures and challenges of the modern business environment.
