Description of (Master of Business Administration)

If you aspire to make a significant contribution to managing and leading at a strategic level in the real world, this is the course for you.

You consider topics including finance, cross-cultural leadership and management, and issues in the global environment. You gain an internationally renowned qualification and the skills and knowledge to make an immediate impact in the workplace.

What you study

The course covers a core business framework involving the management of people, finance, information, operations and markets. You focus on strategic leadership and innovation, and enhance your ability to lead and manage change.
Expect a strategic focus on the major functional areas of business, incorporating an element of choice and flexibility, moving on to examine organisational strategy and current issues. You design an applied research project which leads to the completion of your dissertation.

How you learn

The course is in two Stages. Modules are taught via lectures, seminars, practical workshops and visiting lecturers, along with group work with presentations from students. Self-directed learning forms part of some learning strategies along with your expectation to undertake your own piece of unique research in Stage 2. Teaching staff adopt a range of web-based technologies to deliver module content, assess, provide feedback and communicate with students.
