Course Summary

The Roehampton MBA with placement year is designed with early career professionals in mind. It focuses on responsible leadership for sustaining competitive advantage and managing projects in a global context. It is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the main functional areas of business management such as strategy, marketing, finance and organisational change. The Roehampton MBA puts emphasis on the analysis of global organisations' best practices and strategies and it provides the opportunity to pursue a consultancy project with either a multinational corporation or a leading SME in London.

This programme has been designed with input from successful senior managers, and will equip you with an understanding of the needs of global business. This MBA will also prepare you for the challenges of senior management within an international business environment.

Career options

You will emerge from the Roehampton MBA with well-developed project management and global business management skills, which are highly sought after by employers in both the private and public sectors. You will be equipped to work as a manager in a multinational corporation, international SME or start your own consultancy business.


This module provides you with a critical understanding of the sources and uses of finance for organisations operating in a domestic or international context and focuses on the management of financial and other resources to optimise organisational performance. You will explore the use of accounting, budgetary and other information systems in managerial planning, decision-making and control. You will learn to apply appropriate analytical tools and techniques, such as the balanced scorecard, key performance indicators, cost-volume-profit analysis and budget variance analysis. Through the lectures, relevant reading and seminar activities you will be introduced to the theory and practice of performance management and control. The role of budgets and budgetary control are critically evaluated and alternatives beyond budgeting are explored to ensure the organisation?s strategic goals are achieved. Through the learning and assessment strategy, you will incorporate the thinking behind integrated reporting, which acknowledges non-financial forms of capital such as human, intellectual, social and natural capital, as well as financial capital into your construction of a balanced scorecard.
