Course Summary

Overview

We offer the world’s first and only MBA focused on the Circular Economy.

This new economic model aims to:

  • use resources and energy more effectively
  • reuse products and materials
  • deliver increased profit for organisations

As a student you’ll have a unique degree and first-mover advantage, opening up a range of new career opportunities. You’ll learn the core aspects of a traditional MBA programme, augmented by in-depth study of this contemporary economic model - equipping you with the skills you need to tackle the business, social and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century.

The curriculum has been developed in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. You’ll study topics including:

  • regenerative product design
  • new business models
  • reverse logistics
  • materials, resources, energy and competitiveness
  • operations, marketing and strategic management

The programme is studied part time through distance learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the MBA at a pace to suit you in anything from two to six years.

Learning and assessment

Circular Economy students are not required to attend any sessions at University of Bradford School of Management. However students can chose to study up to three modules (each running over 3-5 days) at the School of Management or at one of our partner institutions in Singapore or Dubai for no extra cost (other than travel and subsistence costs).

Your knowledge and understanding of each subject area studied will be assessed by the most appropriate means. This will typically involve the completion of a written assignment, an exam or in some cases an assignment and an exam. If you need to sit an exam we have approved examination centres worldwide, making it highly likely that there is an exam centre near you.

Career prospects

An MBA is an opportunity to either change career direction or consolidate experience then return and progress in a previous industry or job. The Financial Times Global MBA rankings show that alumni continue to operate in a wide range of sectors with, on average, 20% of them being in board level positions within three years of graduation.

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career Development Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies.
