Course Summary

Why choose this course?

The MBA is an internationally recognised postgraduate general business qualification for managers who wish to expand and develop their skills and knowledge. This award will develop your knowledge of key business functions and their relationship with the wider strategic and international environment. You will also expand your knowledge and understanding of the current changes in the business environment through the study of strategic management, stakeholder management and corporate social responsibility.

The programme is designed so that full time students are able to complete the course in one academic year and part time in two years. By the end of the programme you will have enhanced your knowledge and understanding of Business and Management concepts and principles, theoretical frameworks and applied analysis through a range of learning experiences. You will also develop key skills in formulating and managing basic research, problem-solving and organising and managing projects.

In today’s highly dynamic global environment, a complexity of factors, including technology, enterprise and innovation, have a significant impact on business systems and functions. With this in mind, full -time MBA students on the standard mode of delivery (i.e. classroom study and blended learning out of classroom activities) will join with peers from other postgraduate courses offered by University of Wolverhampton Business School.

In this module, you will explore the range of meta-challenges facing business, understand the social and the business case for acting sustainably, and discuss how sustainability can be managed. On successful completion of the module, you will have a critical understanding of the sustainability challenges and opportunities, and how businesses can manage these.
