The new Southampton Full-time MBA focuses on leading people and organisations to face the critical challenges of sustainability, innovation and change in today’s highly volatile and uncertain environment.
Taught by world-class academics, the Southampton MBA delivers cutting-edge thinking and requires you to apply it to real business problems through a combination of business research, ‘live’ client consultancy, company visits, international study trips and regular exposure to senior business leaders.
By developing your analytical, strategic and leadership skills across all business disciplines, you will gain a more holistic view of management and leadership, which will propel your career to new heights.
The Full-time MBA attracts managers from across the world. They come from public and private sector organisations, including the financial, oil and gas, IT, telecoms, manufacturing, health and service sectors. Working closely with a highly diverse, international cohort will enrich your experience further and give you a valuable insight into different business cultures.
Whether you wish to improve your promotion prospects, bring new skills to your current role or demonstrate that you are ready to take on a higher level of responsibility, the Southampton MBA will help you to achieve your ambitions.
Completing an MBA at Southampton will enable you to take your career to the next level, whatever your sector. You’ll graduate with a wide range of business skills, the confidence to tackle problems and lead organisational change, and experience of working in an international, cross-cultural team. Our students come from a variety of professional backgrounds and many return to their sector with a view to taking on roles with greater managerial, strategic or leadership responsibilities.
Dedicated career support
To help you plan your next career steps, the Southampton MBA includes a Leadership Development Programme (LDP). As well as one-to-one sessions with your independent coach, the PPD includes a series of workshops tailored for MBA students and delivered by the University’s Careers and Employability Service. You’ll also have access to worldwide MBA-level employment opportunities and recruiter fairs. Every year we host a series of guest speakers from a range of industries to talk about employment-related topics.
