Course summary

Course description

With the Leicester Global MBA you learn from a pioneer in global executive education with a strong international reputation.

When you take the Leicester Global MBA, you will be able to combine online and face-to-face learning to suit your needs. Our online learning environment lets you study anytime, anywhere, whilst the annual Leicester Masterclass and our regular residential workshops held at our Global Centres help you hone the skills that are best practised face-to-face - giving you unparalleled opportunities to gain cross-cultural experiences.

The Leicester Global MBA programme offers a great return on investment because you can continue to work while you are gaining a valuable qualification. By studying whilst you work, you, your team, and your company immediately benefit from your newly gained knowledge and skills. Not only this, but your Leicester Global MBA Project gives you an opportunity to further your prospects by conducting a live consultancy style study in your company, exploring an industry of your choice or preparing a business plan for your next start-up.

As you progress through the programme you will compile a Learning and Professional Development Portfolio - a record of your learning, reflection, attainment of skills and engagement in career development. This portfolio will help you evidence your professional competencies to current and future employers.

The Leicester Global MBA is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and offers a dual award from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Upon successful completion of the Leicester Global MBA you will be awarded CMI’s Level 7 Certificate or Diploma in Management and Leadership Practice (subject to moderation). In addition, upon completion of the qualification, you will also be awarded CMI’s Foundation Chartered Manager status.
