You will be in a position to apply your learning directly to your workplace and experience the immediate benefits of this course. The Executive MBA programme is taught over two years (usually Fridays and Saturdays) and includes an induction week, residentials in the UK, in Europe and one international residential (optional) which involve industrial visits and plant tours. A further six months allows you time to complete your research project.
In addition you will be required to attend eight Master Class sessions from a selection of over 20 specialist subjects. The final aspect of the programme centres on the MBA research project, during which you will be allocated a personal tutor to guide you through the requirements of the dissertation.

The final part of the course concentrates on research into an appropriate strategic management topic. You will be given guidance in research methods, before you carry out the necessary independent research, which will be under the supervision of a specialist member of the academic staff. We encourage you to undertake your research project within your current organisation as it highlights the relevance and practical application of your studies.
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 own organisation, 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, exams, reports and a dissertation. Clearly laid out assessments, supported by guidance and instruction will assist you in fulfilling these programme requirements.
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 with no formal qualifications but with appropriate management experience will be considered for our Non-Graduate Entry Programme.
English language proficiency at a minimum of IELTS band 6.5 with no component score below 6.0.
No work experience is required.
