Course summary

Around the world there is growing employer demand for masters-level business professionals. Our full-time MBA programme will help you develop key theoretical concepts as well as how to adapt and utilise skills in a practical global business environment. You'll study core modules covering essential areas of management including leadership, marketing, finance, and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship education is among our foremost strengths, and you will take part in the Ingenuity process - a unique method for encouraging creative problem solving, developed by our Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. You can also focus on your interests and career goals by choosing from specialist optional modules, covering topics including venture capital, ethics, business intelligence, and change management. You will also complete a company-based management project, working with a company to help them to resolve real business issues. This is an opportunity to put knowledge into practice, impress a potential employer, and foster good relationships from which you may benefit at a later date. A fundamental part of your learning and development is through group work. We provide a management and interpersonal skills programme that all MBA students take part in, helping you form social networks and ease your return to academic life. Working with talented peers from different professional and cultural backgrounds will help you develop a global perspective. The course includes many opportunities for practical experience and networking, including our international study tours (dependent upon any travel restrictions) where you’ll gain direct experience of global business through meetings with executives, company visits, and sessions with experts. Our unique connections with China and Malaysia also offer a fantastic opportunity to learn about the essentials of doing business in these countries. You’ll also visit companies in Nottingham and London as part of our Business Practice Week to learn first-hand about different types of businesses, their current challenges, and how these relate to the theory you’re studying. Your personal and professional development is an ongoing conversation throughout the MBA. We offer a range of career development activities to help plan your next career move based on your individual experiences, skills, interests and aspirations. You’ll graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers and progress as a business leader.
