The MBA is an internationally recognised and respected qualification for managers. Applicants are from both the public and private sectors in the UK and abroad.
The teaching programme is aimed at those who are looking to develop their careers and at ‘high flyers’ that need an understanding of all the major functions of business providing generalist knowledge for prospective leaders.
In addition to enhancing successful students’ career prospects, the course aims to encourage independent and creative thinkers. This is done by following the UK Quality Assurance Agency guidelines in giving students a ‘strong practical and professional orientation’ differentiating it from other masters programmes.
All students complete seven taught modules, (five compulsory core modules and two optional modules), together with a final dissertation/project.
Applicants should meet one of the following:
- Possess, or expect to obtain, a degree from a recognised university with a minimum of a 2:2 classification;
- Have a minimum of five years relevant management experience;
- Hold a professional or other qualification which is deemed acceptable for admission .
Students whose first language is not English will need to provide evidence of fluency to at least an IELTS 6.0 standard or equivalent.
There are quality assurance measures taken at programme, school and institutional level to ensure standards are consistently met.
