Course Summary

This Postgraduate Certificate sits as a separate award within the Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy distance-learning MBA programme. It is designed for those who wish to solely focus on Circular Economy without the additional MBA elements. The programme is studied part-time through distance-learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means that you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the programme at a pace to suit you in anything from two to six years. The programme has been developed to support our academic programme with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF). This PG Certificate will combine the specialist management knowledge and tools from our traditional MBA programme to assess critical global and national trends and drivers, looking at what they mean for your business, region, supply chains, customers and operations, while developing potential strategic and operational responses to global business transitions.

Careers: During your time studying at the Faculty of Management and Law you will have the opportunity to take part in our distinctive career booster programme throughout the duration of your course. The programme is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and graduate attributes to be job-ready when seeking employment with leading innovative organisations. 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.
