Course Summary

Overview

Our Executive MBA will give you 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 our MBA gives you options to study in Bradford, Dubai, Toulouse (one module) and online through Distance Learning. All modes use the same platform but deliver it in different ways to maximise impact. This provides you with excellent and lasting networking opportunities both during and after your MBA.

Our Executive weekend teaching format provides you with a period of concentrated study that has minimal impact on your career. If you are unable to make a weekend you can study the module online, anywhere in the world.

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.

Learning and assessment

Assessment is mainly by a 4,000 word assignment for the core, and a 2,000 word assignment for the electives. The Management Project is 15,000 words. Additionally there are formative assignments and multiple-choice questionnaires that help develop your confidence and familiarity with the subject matter, without contributing a mark towards your final mark.

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, on average, 20% of alumni achieve board-level positions within three years of graduation.

On completion of the programme participants go into a wide variety of functions and sectors, including IT/Telecoms, Finance & Banking and Industry being amongst the most popular.
