Business Administration (International)

Our MBA is ideal for first-line managers who wish to develop their managerial skills. It will prepare you for a senior management career by increasing your skills in business development, leadership and facilitating change in organisations. On our MBA, you will also develop your critical and strategic thinking as well as your problem solving abilities. On this programme, you will study management at an individual, group and organisational level as well as at a functional, process and strategic level. Our MBA enables you to develop a strategic, integrated and holistic perspective of organisations and management. You will also gain an advanced understanding of concepts and current and pervasive issues in business and management. In addition, you will develop the analytical and research skills needed to make logical arguments and creative contributions to improve business and management practice. We have designed our MBA to allow you some autonomy over the content of your degree, and the dissertation or consultancy project encourages you to pursue your own interests for career and business development. On successful conclusion of the course, you will hold the award of Master of Business Administration (MBA). This is the most widely recognised international management qualification, and qualifies you for exemptions from certain professional examinations.
