Course summary

Why choose this course?

Business innovation and leadership transformation are the driving forces behind our Kingston Master of Business Administration (MBA). Whether you are looking to advance your career, increase your employability or move internationally, our MBA is the stepping stone towards personal self-development and achieving your individual career goals. At Kingston Business School we believe that professional success is shaped by honing and developing personal capacity and skills, as well as the academic framework of knowledge. On this MBA you will gain core multi-disciplinary knowledge whilst developing your emotional intelligence, critical leadership and management skills. Our MBA focuses on the real-life practical application of new skills, knowledge and approaches in order to transform business opportunities, tackle current problems and address future challenges. We nurture dynamic, open-minded thinking that contests existing systems, perceptions and perspectives. Through live consultancy projects and current business challenges embedded into the course we encourage a ‘big picture' approach in order to drive positive change within complex business functions and global environments.

What you will study

Through the MBA we aim for our students to actively analyse, question, interpret and innovate. This course will prepare you to identify and embrace potential opportunities whilst developing your creative capacities and collaborative approach in order to be successful in different environments. The full-time MBA programme is structured in two parts across 12 months. Teaching takes place on weekday daytime classes with some weekend sessions. You will also attend a summer school in July of each year to study your electives. An optional second year is available to complete a Professional Placement. Our Executive MBA is a part-time programme. It covers the same content at the full-time MBA and is typically completed across two years.

Teaching and assessment

Assessment typically comprises exams (eg test or exam), practical (eg presentations, performance) and coursework (eg essays, reports, self-assessment, portfolios, dissertation).
