If you aspire to make a significant contribution to your organisation and society more generally by leading at a strategic level, this is the course for you.

On completion of the MBA programme you will:

Professional accreditation

The course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). On successful completion of the MBA, students will also be eligible for a CMI level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership.

How you are assessed

The programme adopts a range of formative and summative assessment methods to suit the demands and requirements of the applied nature of the MBA. These include business reports, case study analysis, presentations, self-diagnostic assessments, reflective reports and a research proposal and associated dissertation.

Career opportunities

Typically graduates move into general or senior management and strategic leadership roles, internal consultant/project leadership roles or into external consultancy roles. You build on your existing work experience and skills, and the programme enhances your ability to lead and manage change.

Graduates from this course are confident, enterprising and proactive. They are attractive to employers across a broad spectrum of sectors and job roles and many go on to become successful business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Modules

You consider the nature of entrepreneurial leadership, with a specific focus towards structure, culture and strategy.
