Course Summary

The Education Leadership MBA has been designed to equip experienced education managers with the knowledge and skills required to lead a modern academy or group of academies. The programme will give you an understanding of operational and marketing issues that face those who lead and manage academies. Fully accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the AMBA accreditation is your guarantee of the quality of the programme, the teaching and the outcomes.

The Education Leadership programme has been designed for experienced education managers to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to lead a modern academy or group of academies. You will study the three core modules that make up the Salford MBA; the fourth module, Executive Education, is a specialist module that looks at contemporary issues in Education management.

Delivered in a blended format, this programme combines online and on campus study and includes a work-based consultancy project and an international study visit. You will draw on your previous management experience to join in online and face to face discussion with tutors and fellow students, then use the scholarship and research to reflect your learning back into the workplace. Our broad range of modules and unique business partnerships make this programme an ideal option for ambitious executives who are seeking to improve their knowledge across a full range of advanced skill sets.

For two days each month, you will come to Salford for intensive study. During this face to face time on campus, you will meet both academics and fellow students. While here, you will follow a study programme but this is also your opportunity to share your experiences, learn from your peers and develop your professional network in a supportive and collaborative environment. The course is specifically designed for those aspiring to work within management and exposes the student to a variety of operational and functional management concepts and practices. This will enable students to gain a greater appreciation of the operational, functional and international aspects of business and management.
