Course Summary

The MBA with Advanced Practice is a general management course aimed at aspiring and established middle managers from a range of business sectors. The Advanced Practice element offers students the opportunity to gain valuable workplace environment experience.

The course has been designed to account for current (local, regional and international) market trends and has recently been updated to provide additional flexibility, choice and the opportunity and to help apply taught management skills.

The overall objective of this course is to educate and develop individuals as managers and business specialists, adding value through an integrated, applied and critical understanding of management and organisations, as well as the development of professional, transferable and intellectual skills that are essential for successful general and strategic management in private, public and third sector organisations.

Advanced Practice:

The compulsory Advanced Practice element of this programme takes place after you have studied 8 taught modules at the Masters stage and will enable you to undertake a 15 week long internship, or applied consulting project, working with a real organisation on a live business problem. This gives you the opportunity to gain experience of the workplace environment and/or practical experience of the “real world” issues faced by those currently engaged in marketing.

Careers and progression

The course places a strong focus on enhancing the employment prospects of its graduates. Previous Ulster University alumni have secured positions within large multinational organisations such as Diageo, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte and KPMG as well as small to medium-sized enterprises. Others have used the programme as a valuable springboard to gain a thorough understanding of business and management principles before starting up their own business.
