Course summary

This MBA has been designed for those ready to make the leap into management roles from an existing job and those who are aspiring to become managers. The course has a particular focus on the finance function and considers ways in which resources can be managed to support business development, particularly internationally.

Importantly, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions made by organisations about their future.

Applicants are welcomed from any discipline and from a wide range of job roles. Many entrants to an MBA have a science or technology qualification so it is not necessary that you have studied business or management before.

What will I study?

The MBA is designed to allow you to develop an understanding of key aspects of business and management. You will study topics related to accounting and finance, human resource management, marketing and strategic management. By the end of these modules you will have an understanding of these critical aspects of business. Those who major in Finance will also study international finance.

Teaching is set in an international context with examples and illustrations drawn from the global economy. Throughout we will also take a strategic focus, concentrating on the major decisions that organisations have to make to determine their overall direction. Finally, you will be exposed to a range of contemporary issues that are of interest to all managers. These will include such things as globalisation, ethics and social responsibility.

How will I study?

As well as preparing for and attending lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, you will spend time reading and completing coursework, including written assignments, portfolios and presentations. Learning from your colleagues is an important part of the course and many exercises will require you to work in teams.

Career Prospects

What are my career prospects?
