The accreditation by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education, demonstrating the quality, reputation and comparability of our programme.
Portsmouth Business School is a member of the Association of MBAs Group Membership Scheme, meaning our MBA students and alumni are entitled to free extended membership of the Association. This provides you with exclusive access to a global network of over 5,000 AMBA members and information with regards to MBA specific careers, networking and knowledge services for support throughout your studies and your career.
Our course is designed to provide a general management education that promotes a holistic view of management, organisations and their global environment. With an integrated approach to learning, it explores the managerial competencies required to lead and facilitate strategic change and to understand contemporary organisational challenges. You will apply such learning in your work-based project and throughout your placement.
Here are the units you will study:
Our friendly and supportive environment uses formal lectures and seminars alongside activity-based case studies. We aim to promote your career prospects by putting you into simulated situations where you apply your learning to analyse complex problems, explore the uncertainties involved, evaluate possible solutions and plan their implementation. These exercises are based on relevant case studies, including several requiring application to your placement, to enable you to develop your diagnostic, decision-making and management skills.
We vary the assessment method according to the topic content and aim to draw on current management practices. As a result, there is a focus on group work and presentations as well as work related assignments, reports and a dissertation. You will receive full guidance to prepare for your assessments.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) 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. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A second-class honours degree (or equivalent, including professional qualifications), not necessarily in a business related subject, plus at least three years of postgraduate work experience at a professional or managerial level. Applicants may also be asked to offer a satisfactory score in the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).
English language proficiency at a minimum of IELTS band 6.5 with no component score below 6.0.
No work experience is required.
