Course summary

Course summary

This new Executive MBA programme is tailored for leaders in manufacturing organisations of all sizes and sectors. Through a collaboration with the Manufacturing Technology Centre, this MBA will merge the practical elements of industry with the academic theory to boost productivity both on production lines and throughout business processes.

This programme meets the standard for the Level 7 Senior Leader Masters Degree Apprenticeship, meaning your employer can fund your studies using the apprenticeship levy so you'll gain an MBA without the fees.

Programme overview

The best leaders have mastered the art of decision making and action based on critical thinking. Your Aston MBA will teach you how to reflect on your own career, perceive emerging opportunities and develop a growth mindset. You will become enterprising in everything you do and your organisation will benefit from a confident and informed business leader.

This programme has been designed in close partnership with the Manufacturing Technology Centre to give leaders in the manufacturing industry the core theory needed to develop their understanding of business functions and the impact they have on manufacturing productivity.

The Management of Manufacturing MBA is made up of six core modules, one elective and a business project taught over a two year period. It concludes with a major business project over the last 6 months of study.

Who is this programme for?

The Management of Manufacturing MBA is a transformational programme for leaders who want to accelerate their career and immerse themselves into the principles of strategic thinking within the context of the manufacturing industry.

Apprentices can range from new employees to existing managers who have grown into their role, but would benefit from a formal MBA qualification. It is intended for managers in management in manufacturing organisations of all sizes and sectors who want to develop their leadership knowledge, transferable skills and behaviours.

Roles can include anyone with significant management responsibilities. Responsibilities can include leading people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long term results.

Learning and teaching

As an apprentice, you'll work full time for your employer and complete your MBA over a two year period through a combination of online workshops and webinars plus two days of on-campus study per module. This gives you the opportunity to enrich your learning through discussion of current business issues and apply your new skills and knowledge straight away in your professional practice.

You’ll combine face-to-face study with online sessions using Blackboard, an interactive online learning platform. Blackboard creates a virtual learning environment where you can engage with module content, participate in live seminars and communicate with your peers. There is also an extensive online library of content to support your studies.

A triple accredited MBA

Aston Business School is one of just 1% of business schools in the world to hold AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accreditation.

Chartered Management Institute (CMI)

The programme is also accredited by the CMI and includes membership throughout the programme and for one year after graduation.
