Who is this course 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.

Students 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 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. These could be leading people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long term results.

Learning, teaching and assessment

As a part-time student, you can 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.
