Course summary

Do you want to make an impact on society? Join us on our new MBA: a different programme for a different approach to management A concern for human values as well as shareholder value is at the heart of the Swansea University MBA. The course is designed to equip learners with global skills for organising and collaborating, as well as competing, in the private, public and third sectors. We place emphasis on imagining future possibilities - such as hybrid organisational forms, new business practices and responsible consumption trends - to meet the challenges of securing human values in increasingly uncertain times of global transformations. Our programme philosophy is to address the gap between practice and theory that can exist in management. The MBA challenges students to be critical thinkers, reflecting on theory and management practice in order to identify where change can be made to the global business landscape. The MBA aims to open up awareness about the possibilities and limitations of different opportunities for inclusion and change in areas such as creative innovation, organisational hybridity, entrepreneurship and experimentation for graduates to shape the future.


Modules may include: Research in Action; Exploring Organisational Purpose; Navigating Innovation & Change; Understanding Finance; Leading with Integrity; Creating Sustainable Value; Data Analysis and Decision-Making.
