Course Summary

Response to Covid-19: Our focus is on providing a safe and welcoming learning environment for our students. We have taken every measure in line with Government guidance, to ensure continued access to learning.

As part of our response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we are planning to deliver this course through a mix of live online classes and face-to-face learning opportunities at the London Holborn, Birmingham and Manchester Centres, continuing to follow Government guidance and any social distancing measures that may be in place. As restrictions ease, face-to-face opportunities will be increased where appropriate and it is safe to do so. More information about our response to Covid-19 and FAQs are available here.

This is a Middlesex University programme and qualification, designed, assessed and quality assured by Middlesex but delivered at and by a partner.

The MBA qualification is a globally recognised masters level qualification. The programme is designed to develop the strategic leadership and decision-making skills of managers at an organisational, rather than functional level.

The MBA has a strong work-based focus, meaning you will be encouraged to identify business problems and decisions at work and then working back though relevant academic theory and research to determine how this can help inform your decision making and management and from this to enhance your own and your organisation’s performance.

Assessment methods: Coursework only, End Point Assessment includes presentation, portfolio and professional discussion.


As the MBA is designed for and attended by experienced management professionals the learning sessions are enriched by the sharing of experiences and backgrounds that fosters a diverse learning environment where you can network also. Often, it’s the interactions between learners that become the most valued and remembered experience of an MBA.

Companies that our graduates from similar programmes work for include the Bank of America, Barclays, Deloitte and Shell.

Our MBA will open opportunities across several industries and roles, our graduates from similar programmes have gone on to work in positions such as Managing Director, Project Manager, Consultant and Finance Manager.


This module provides you with a starting point for your MBA journey. You learn about personal presence, story-telling, confidence, character and other elements of inter-personal excellence. It neither shies away from your employer’s need to align professional development with organisational performance nor the need for you to critically engage with how alignment motivates and empowers you personally towards a more senior leadership role that is scholarly and considered.
