Programme Features

  • A fully AMBA-accredited degree that concentrates on developing a broad spectrum of business skills required to operate at senior levels within an organisation.
  • The course is taught via blended delivery, which includes a mix of online lectures, online seminars and face-to-face teaching on campus. 
  • The programme offers two pathways, enabling students to follow areas of specialist interest. The pathways are: the Strategic Leadership pathway and the Executive Education Leadership pathway.

  • The Executive Education Leadership pathway is designed to equip experienced education managers with the knowledge and skills required to lead a modern academy or group of academies. 
  • The programme includes a three-to-six month consultancy project based around an issue in your own or another organisation. 
  • There is also a one week overseas study visit (in 2018, this was in Colombia) with an intensive schedule of visits to organisations who are implementing the theories and practices you are learning.

Course Duration

  • The MBA is delivered in a blended format taught in four 15-week modules, plus a work-based project and an overseas study visit.
