Course summary

The Aberystwyth MBA enables you to develop an understanding of higher-level managerial skills and concepts and their application in practical situations. You will be taught and will learn through a balanced curriculum, including theory, workshops, and case studies taken from the international arena.

Overview

The MBA programme focuses on developing your academic and managerial skills. An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training in the latest strategic managerial and organisational developments in both the public and private sectors. You will collect and analyse relevant information across a range of areas pertaining to a current situation, synthesise the information into a form appropriate for evaluation of decision alternatives, and engage with people from different cultural backgrounds in order to raise the level of organisational awareness and thinking.

As a student on the MBA programme, you will study current management theory and acknowledged best practice in areas such as leadership, operations, corporate governance and sustainability. The programme includes coverage of human resource management and organisational behaviour. The study of financial analysis and decision making emphasises the uses of financial and accounting data to inform and improve strategic decisions and operations. The coverage of business economics emphasises the external context, as well as the economic foundations, for business decision-making across a range of functional areas.

Our Staff

Students at the Aberystwyth Business School are taught by lecturers and other teaching staff who are active researchers and expert practitioners in their chosen subject area.

Over 75% of full time members of teaching staff are qualified to PhD level. Most are currently research active, meaning that students benefit from being taught ‘new’ knowledge in their chosen field of study as well as recognized literature. The School also employs part-time and full time staff devoted purely to teaching. Many part-time staff combine teaching duties with consultancy and business activities, ensuring that students have access not only to up to date research but the latest applied knowledge.

Study Skills

Alongside the wealth of world-class financial expertise, you will master highly desirable skills in academic research, analysis, argument-formation, presentation and debate. You will also prove your abilities in reflection and self-improvement; you will be able to identify your academic weaknesses and remove them whilst building on your strengths.
