Our International MBA has been developed to address business leadership in an uncertain world of continuous disruption. If you are interested in making the shift from manager to leader in your organisation this programme could be for you.

About

Are you concerned to make sure that your organisation can adapt and evolve to meet changing global contexts and threats? Are you keen to take full advantage of commercial opportunities that are opening up globally and at an accelerating pace? Our International MBA will help you to achieve your ambitions.

If you are already an experienced manager, but aspire to work in more senior positions, this course will enhance your understanding of global businesses, problem solving and creative thinking skills.

This programme covers all the key business functions but with a unique perspective: resilience, and core skills for future-proofing your organisation. Your final project may take the form of a dissertation, consultancy project or work based learning project, and this flexibility will mean that you can tailor your learning to suit your needs.

Employability

As a Bucks Business School graduate, you could benefit from a range of post-graduation support, for example help with developing new business ideas.

In 2016 we also opened our 'Launch pad' boardroom and office space. The Launch Pad space will provide free meeting facilities, Wi-Fi and IT for students and alumni entrepreneurs.

You will also be supported by our Careers and Employability Service, mentoring scheme, and Bucks Business School's network of academics, as well as our international partners.

In addition, on completion of the award, students may be able to apply for Doctorate level programmes such as PhD or professional doctorate.

                    Funding

                    You could benefit from financial support through a variety of bursaries and scholarship schemes during your time as a student.
                    Bursaries and scholarships are non-repayable (unlike loans) and can therefore be a great way to help minimise your costs at university, should you are awarded with them.

                    StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
