Course Summary

Overview

Our Master in Business Administration programme will provide you with the strategic, financial and people skills you’ll need to progress and perform effectively at senior levels.

The programme combines management theory with real business application. From day one you’ll be able to apply new knowledge and skills in your workplace. You will develop a broad foundation of knowledge in core modules, and focus your studies around a particular sector or discipline in elective modules.

The flexibility of the Distance Learning MBA allows you to study at your own convenience with our new Virtual Learning Environment, and we provide live online sessions with tutors that help you contextualise your learning.

Our refreshed MBA has been designed with your future employability in mind, and we continue to work with major employers on our MBA Advisory Board and International Advisory Board to ensure our syllabus deals with contemporary issues.
