Rankings 2017) integrates business and management theory with practice, but also emphasises your personal and professional development. You’ll study the foundations of business such as marketing, accounting, finance, operations and human resource management.
Importantly, you’ll also gain key qualities expected of leaders including commercial awareness, interpersonal skills, a genuine understanding of the fundamental business functions and a critical and questioning outlook.
You’ll apply what you’ve learned to examine significant business issues in a set of live challenges working with a range of external organisations. You’ll gain an international outlook and build valuable connections, helping you become a global leader.

Course programme

Through a variety of taught modules, you’ll gain an understanding of the key components of business management – marketing, accounting, finance, operations and human resource management. Alongside these subjects we explore how to manage and lead people in organisations. You’ll also have the option to take part in one of our international study tours.

You’ll build and apply your skills as you complete live challenges in two of your modules. One of these exciting projects allows you to generate ideas for new commercial opportunities and turn them into viable business plans, either for an existing organisation or in a start-up. The other gives you the chance to provide consultancy support to an external business, social enterprise or voluntary sector organisation.

The course culminates in your MBA Project, giving you the opportunity to turn your knowledge into practice that relates to your own ambitions. Your project can be desk-based if you want to research a topic in-depth, or you can work on a live management issue with an external organization to develop links with employers and industry. If you’re planning to start your own company, you could even put together a comprehensive business plan.
