And you won’t just be benefitting from the experience of the core teaching team - their insight is complemented by a packed schedule of respected industry speakers. These guests from industry provide valuable contributions to both unit design and course delivery, ensuring that the MBA retains an up-to-date business focus
You will also take advantage of our close relationships with the business community. Guest speaker programmes, site visits and the completion of work based assignments all combine to help you build your skillset and plan your career development. Professional mentoring and collaborative working help to refine your leadership skills, preparing you for the challenge of steering teams to success.
Another key component of your MBA will be critical debate facilitated by our blogging and discussion forums.
