Our MBA has been developed to meet the needs of middle/senior managers in the running of their businesses, and to facilitate their progression to higher-level roles within their organisation. Managers need to be aware of issues, able to analyse their potential outcomes and consequences and decide how to react. They do not have to be an expert in all areas of business, but they need a general awareness of which specialist facilities and services exist and how they can assist in carrying out their role. Thus, MBA courses have a far more generalist and strategic approach than those Masters courses focused on specific subject areas.

This philosophy is followed by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) in their Subject Benchmark Statements. Our course follows their recommendations in its focus on the advanced study of organisations and the dynamic, global context in which they operate..

Unique to our MBA is the depth of emphasis on a strong practical and professional orientation to the curriculum and learning styles, which has been developed over our 15-year history. Our MBA has a strong reputation for providing managers with the foundation necessary for handling complex issues in a turbulent business environment. Leaders need to be challenging and thoughtful, analytical and innovative, and these are important elements of our course.

Assessments have a strong practical and professional orientation, enabling you to develop a range of practical management skills relevant to senior roles in their organisation. Work-based assignments are used where relevant and practical, to help you relate your learning to their work environment, increase your knowledge of that environment, help raise your profile and ensure your sponsor gains immediate, practical benefit.

An important component of our course is our Postgraduate Dissertation, supported by our Research Methods for Managers module, and often related to studies in one or more other modules. You are expected to display a considerable degree of proficiency in research methods, and be able to apply such methods to a real-world problem in a practical and business-like manner. You are required to demonstrate knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of your chosen methods, and discuss how you worked within, or overcame such weaknesses. Additionally, they are expected to criticise their own work, both from a methodological and practical standpoint.
