Course summary

Created specifically for the defence community, the MBA Defence programme has been developed out of a growing interest both within the UK defence sector and the international defence community for management education. The programme does not just allow students to improve their skills and techniques in general management, but in addition we help our students to build the confidence, emotional intelligence, decision-making and team-working qualities that make for inspirational leaders.

The course is offered in partnership with Cranfield Defence and Security at the Defence Academy, Shrivenham and the School of Management at Cranfield.

Who is it for?

The Cranfield Executive MBA (Defence) course is designed for military officers, civil service personnel and defence industry executives looking to contribute more effectively towards future military initiatives.

It is designed to meet the requirement for postgraduate management education in the defence sector. It aims to provide management skills with a specific bias towards defence. Students are provided with an exceptional opportunity to study in a dynamic and enquiring scholarly arena, but using practical case studies to explore the appropriateness of theory to real-life practical contexts.

Defence managers will benefit from this advanced programme of study, aimed at providing specialist knowledge to target new horizons. Without peers, the MBA Defence degree meets the modern defence community’s need for specialised policy-oriented defence management education. The learning experience is unique: forged from a mix of theoretical models, the extraordinary challenges posed by timely and efficient defence resource management, and the leadership imperative of lateral thinking.

Consequently, the MBA Defence produces graduates highly skilled in the resolution of contemporary defence management problems.

Why this course?

Relevant management skills are at a premium today, as business practices evolve rapidly as the pace of business increases. With greater reliance on technology and deeper integration of the commercial sector within the defence economy, managers and planners of defence resources must possess the skills to respond quickly and decisively in making informed and effective decisions.

For defence managers in the military, civil service and private sectors, a recognised postgraduate degree in management is essential for progression into senior management.

With a multi-national, multi-cultural and multi-professional mix, the MBA provides a hotbed of knowledge sharing and networking that is invaluable and inestimable, both personally and with respect to your business environment, whatever it may be. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.
