Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Course Highlights:

Accelerate your path to becoming an impactful leader with our MBA Advanced Entry route

An MBA is an important breakthrough in the development of senior managers or aspiring directors, as it brings together the fundamental and real-world skills, knowledge, and attributes of what it takes to lead people and deliver results.

An MBA is usually studied once you’ve gained a few years of professional experience. Achievement of this degree can lead to greater professional prospects, improved professional reputation and a wider business network.

The programme exposes you to a global network, diverse student group, career opportunities, and rigorous academic experience.

The MBA Advanced Entry route programme is offered to students that already hold relevant practical hands-on management experience and a recognised Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in management or an equivalent qualification.


Programme Information and Delivery

The Advanced Entry route programme consists of a Research Methods module and a Consultancy Project Report on a related topic of your choice, making it a popular option for individuals committed to developing their careers in senior management.

Research Methods – including Research Proposal

The programme begins with Induction and Research Methods webinars, which enable you to finalise your proposal for your project.

Consultancy Project Report

The Consultancy Project Report module provides the opportunity for students to examine an area of particular interest within an appropriate organisational context. The module is designed to make a major contribution to professional and intellectual development, through enabling students to demonstrate their capacity for sustained independent thought, learning and critical reflection.

The purpose of this programme is to deliver a practical and realistic solution to a business-related strategic challenge, which in turn is supported by appropriate reference to theoretical and conceptual analysis. Students will evidence this by producing a Consultancy Project Report.

The Consultancy Project Report is delivered and assessed by our UK based academic team using our virtual learning platform and direct support from your allocated supervisor.

The MBA Advanced Entry route takes approximately 6 – 9 months to complete working with the support of your dedicated supervisor for the final Consultancy Project Report module.
