It's your MBA programme and we give you every opportunity to tailor its content through a wide choice of electives, a personal and professional development programme so that your Executive MBA course takes you where you want to go not just after your MBA, but over the lifetime of your career.

In particular, they will help you focus on your job search strategy as well as providing you with expert CV, interview and networking advice. Industry specialist coaches and a careers psychologist are also available to help build a clear picture of your career options.

Professional Development Workshops

These workshops are an important part of your EMBA programme and supplement your core and elective modules with a range of soft skills. Alongside the compulsory career workshops, you are advised to select from a range of additional workshops and seminars to fit your individual learning plan and strategy.
