Description

The MBA (International Business) at UEL builds on our long-standing experience of offering a wide range of postgraduate programmes both in the UK and overseas. The programme is offered as a career development generalist programme within a given sector for those who have a first degree (or equivalent) and relevant work experience on which the learning process should build.

The programme can be considered as a management conversion programme at Masters level. The MBA is based on the recognition that international and global business skills and understanding are required if firms and those working within them are to compete effectively and thus maximise the potential or their resources.To build on this recognition the programme offers an optional extra semesters study in Washington DC, USA at the Kogood School of Business which includes a business related internship, for UEL on-campus students.

The main emphasis is on leadership through strategic management where students are expected to ground their new knowledge within the base of their previous professional experience. Students are expected to reflect on and learn from prior experience and combine this with new knowledge to apply to new situations. The main aims of the programme then are;

* To facilitate the advanced study of organisations, their management and the changing external context in which they operate.
* To develop knowledge and understanding of key areas of management.
* To develop a career in business and management through the development of relevant skills at the appropriate level or to facilitate further research or study in the area.
* To facilitate the application of knowledge and understanding of business and management to complex issues through critical and analytical approaches to management theory, practice and research.
* To enhance the ability to evaluate management techniques, tools and models in a variety of contexts.
* To recognise the relationship between ideas and practices.
* To develop personal and interpersonal skills that is relevant to management and communicates the arising issues in written and oral form.
* To equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve the appropriate level of post graduate award and continue their lifelong learning development.

The programme consists of four 30 M-level credit modules and a 60 M-level credit Dissertation module:

* International Marketing and Operational Product/Service Delivery.
* Information Systems and Financial modelling.
* International Business Strategy.
* International Human Resource Management.
* Management Dissertation/Business Simulation

Contents

The MBA is a 180 Level M credit programme and is offered in a full time and part time mode of study. Entry is at 2 points per year, in September and February. All full time cohorts are provided with 12 months tuition and 3 months self directed study. Those who commence their programmes in September can complete in 12 calendar months. Given the exigencies of university vacations those who commence in February can complete in 15 calendar months. For those UEL on-campus students taking advantage of the extra semesters study in Washington DC, they would be expected to take this opportunity between semester A and semester B thus extending their programme of study. They would recommence their semester B studies in the following September. Students wishing to take advantage of this option must advise admissions at the time of application.
Part time study on campus at UEL is available in daytime only mode. In line with the current University framework for the delivery of post graduate degrees the programme consists of four, 30 Level M credit, core modules and one 60 credit Level M, dissertation module. All students would be expected to follow the programme of study shown below;

Overall Structure

MBA 30 M level credit modules

* International Marketing and Operational Product/Service Delivery.
* Information Systems and Financial Modelling.
* International Human Resource Management.
* International Business Strategy.

MBA 60 M Level credit dissertation module;
Here there is a choice between participation in a business simulation or completion of a management dissertation. The reason for this choice is that the university recognises that due to the large full time over-seas cohorts, access to relevant company data for the management report might be limited to their home countries only. The business simulation will act as a vehicle for further research. There will be a research-planning component to this module, which will take place in the second semester. Overseas collaborative partners choices will be limited to completion of a Management Dissertation.

Each module will be delivered in one semester and will be one semester in duration. Students will be expected to have successfully completed all other modules before attempting the Management Dissertation (unless AEL conditions apply). The dissertation module will be offered in each semester
