Course Summary

The Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) is designed for senior leaders who want to shape their organisation’s future and their own career. You will explore and pioneer solutions to global challenges in relation to yourself, your organisation and wider society.

The EMBA is a part-time, flexible, work-based programme. It is delivered using a blended learning model with monthly two day study blocks on campus during teaching time. In advance of study block attendance, you will engage individually and collectively with the programme and module specific blended learning materials and resources. This will still allow you to study flexibly around your work and personal commitments.

The group intake will be small. You will benefit from:

individualised personal development
group action learning
developing relationships in a trusted peer group who will become a powerful support network beyond the life of the EMBA

The curriculum is dynamic and relevant. It combines world-leading research, thought leaders from the world of policy and practice and real-time projects. The EMBA is also work-based and experiential. It has been designed to enable you to learn through working on real organisational challenges. You will reflect on your own professional practice.

Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship

The EMBA is available as a progression route when studying the Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies.


The aim of this practice-based module is to enable you to develop and enhance, to an advanced level, your knowledge, understanding and practice of strategic marketing, operations and supply chain. The module will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your skills of exploring strategic possibilities to reach your markets and customers, and practising effective operations and value chain management in complex environments.
