This course is for students wishing to build an early career in management.

What will this course cover?
Our MBA is designed to help you meet the challenges facing managers in the global business environment. It will develop your critical and strategic thinking and equip you with the necessary tools for solving problems. The programme enables you to develop a strategic, integrated and holistic perspective of organisations. You will study management at an individual, group and organisational behavioural level as well as at a functional, process and strategic level. The course will prepare you for a senior management career through the development of enhanced personal and interpersonal skills.

In particular, you will gain leadership capability, skills in business development and in facilitating change in organisations. Academics and practitioners with an international perspective teach this programme, enabling them to equip you with the necessary skills to lead across global boundaries. As an MBA student, you will network with managers from a wide-range of businesses and cultural backgrounds. You will benefit from business simulation games, group discussions and various team working activities. We distinguish ourselves from other MBAs by offering the following opportunities to our most ambitious MBA students:

* work on international business research projects
* develop business start-up ideas
* continue onto a PhD

We also offer you the chance of gaining first-hand experience in undertaking a consultancy project for a company. You will be supported by Bucks staff with extensive practitioner and/or business experience during this consultancy work. We are a member of the Association of Business Schools.

Why choose this course?
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. It also allows for entry to further postgraduate studies, including PhD programmes, as well as for academic and professional work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

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.
