Description

This is an American degree

The MBA aims to develop broadly educated business leaders who understand the nature of business as a whole and are equipped with the tools and techniques applicable to a wide variety of business situations.

You will explore information and theory from various disciplines, including accounting, ethics, economics, finance, marketing, production operations and strategic management.

The course emphasises the nature of competition and the strategic manoeuvring necessary to succeed.

If you do not have sufficient academic background in business-related studies, you may be required to take one or more pre-requisite modules.

Why should I choose this programme?

The global financial crisis has redefined standards, precipitated new thinking about organisations and imposed new governance structures. In addition, forces of economic globalisation, political transition, technical innovation and hybridisation create new opportunities and propose new definitions of work.

In this programme, you will delve into the issues most relevant to today’s business world and learn how to prepare for them. The interdisciplinary approach to learning will prepare you to work in a wide range of industries and across all sectors.

MBA graduates are in demand. It is a qualification that gives credibility and distinction to the holder and is recognised both locally and globally.

Key skills, aims and objectives

The MBA will prepare you for a successful and rewarding career. It will equip you with skills and capabilities that are transferable across many industries and contexts, as well as knowledge of the latest business techniques and advanced business concepts.

You will gain:

  • Transferable skills including communication, leadership, team building, critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills
  • A global mind-set and intellectual creativity
  • Job-specific skills including financial analysis, organisational design, environmental audits and assessment, situational awareness

Additional information

This is an American degree. It is made up of units known as credit hours. Each class that you undertake will allow you to accumulate credit hours.

Most classes (modules) carry three credit hours. You must successfully complete at least 36 credit hours (12 modules) to complete the programme.

The main parts of your degree are the core modules. You will follow 8-10 core modules, depending on your chosen degree. These must be complemented with a selection of elective modules to make up the required total of 12 modules.

For some programmes, elective modules can be chosen from the full selection of MA, MS and MBA classes.

Professional skills development

In addition you will be expected to spend time in scholarship and research activities each term. All students undertake a mandatory, no-credit module in their first term (LIBR 5010 Professional Studies) which strengthens their academic skills in preparation for postgraduate study.

Sequential degrees

RUL also offers you the opportunity to undertake a sequential degree – a second MA, MS or MBA degree following your first postgraduate degree.

If you have earned an MA, MS or an MBA from Webster University, or Master’s or Doctorate from another regionally accredited college or university, or an international equivalent, you may apply for a sequential Master’s degree by completing the core modules (minimum 21 credit hours) in your chosen degree.

Please note: the sequential Master’s degrees in International Relations and Finance require completion of 27 hours of coursework.
