The MBA programme provides a course in general, and corporate management, and specialisation in finance for the MBA Finance programme. Our programme adds value to your first degree by developing an integrated and critically aware understanding of management and organisations in a global context.

The syllabus is the same to that offered in Nottingham University Business School.

We have two modes of study:
Full-time mode: All 12 modules and a management project in a period of one academic year
Part-time: 12 modules and a management project over a two to four year period.
The programme consists of a series of core modules, designed to develop your management knowledge and skills. Optional modules will allow you to concentrate on more specific subjects according to your interests and career requirements. Both full-time and part-time students must complete a total of 12 taught modules and a management project. The final stage of the MBA is a management project (individual) of 20000 words (weight 100%). The full-time mode will allow completion over a one year period while the part-time mode offers you more flexibility and allows you to complete your studies between 2-4 years.
Classes are of 3 hours each and will combine lectures, case studies, group breakout discussions, and group presentations, depending on module subject matter.
Most modules will involve group work with like-minded individuals from diverse industries and countries. You will also develop the skills to implement agreed solutions effectively and efficiently, along with interpersonal skills to enable you to interact across a wide range of business stakeholders. In addition, we have various business leaders for our ‘Business Leader Series’ which serve as a platform for interaction and exchange of ideas with industry leaders from various sectors. You will also have the opportunity to attend study skills sessions and additional workshops and seminars on research methods relevant to management projects.
