The MBA can be taken on an intensive, full-time basis over 12 months, with scheduled learning sessions from September to June, and a consultancy project taking place from June to September. The other option is a flexible, part-time programme designed to be completed in three years, but can be shorter or longer as required. Scheduled learning sessions are one day a week from 2pm to 8pm, so participants will require employer support.
Applicants will need a good degree or a professional qualification equivalent to a degree, or a diploma in management studies. They will also be expected to have at least three years worth of relevant, post-qualification work experience.
These will include: concept of enterprise, global context of enterprise, managing enterprises (including HR), managing knowledge and information, vision and strategic management, innovation and change, and a choice of three electives (advanced management functions such as HRM, services management, and international business law and regulation). Participants will also submit an Enterprise Portfolio Consultancy project, which is likely to be undertaken in the participant’s place of employment.
This MBA is particularly suited to those wanting to understand innovation and change in business and who are interested in applying new structures and strategies. Participants unable to complete the whole programme may qualify for the award of either a postgraduate certificate or postgraduate diploma.
