About the Programme

Study one programme, gain two degrees. Richmond uniquely awards a UK and US qualification for all graduates, including MBA students.

All of our MBA students follow the same programme initially, which begins in the first semester with a thorough study of financial management, business economics and explores how to manage both organisations and people. In the second semester you’ll move on to examine the principles of strategic management, how to implement global marketing strategies and conduct business research.

Also, you will have the opportunity to specialise in a human resource topic of your choice. It could be Leading, Mentoring and Coaching or Human Resource Management. Either way, your people management skills will be enhanced considerably, opening up career opportunities.

You’ll then be able to choose a human resource topic for your professional project, with or without an internship.

The MBA faculty team at Richmond, which includes both academics and experienced industry professionals, is collaborative and supportive. They practice the latest teaching methods which stimulate critical thinking and creativity and encourage you to explore boundaries in your thinking and actions.

Learning alongside an international cohort of students will also enable you to share fresh perspectives on similar problems and build lasting business networks.


We offer career support and advice through our Careers & Internships Office that will assist and guide you in your study choices to make sure you stand out from the crowd when you graduate. Through internships you will gain business acumen, beneficial work experiences and transferable skills which will give you a competitive advantage in a fast-paced working environment. Work while you study across 5 continents through our partners Connect123 and CRCC Asia with destinations in Spain, Argentina, South Africa, China, Japan, Vietnam and Australia.

Optional Accredited Internship

The Internship Programme at Richmond integrates industry knowledge with real working experience. Students will be challenged to relate course projects to the workplace, make contacts which may prove valuable to their future employment prospects, and gain confidence in their capabilities, creativity and communication skills. Internships are designed to be both demanding and rewarding. The internship will provide an opportunity to better understand the marketplace, using the skills learned on courses in a real-world setting, as students produce an assessed record of their experiences.

A broad education of this kind equips graduates for a wide range of careers internationally, while enabling them to develop specialist expertise in areas of particular interest.
