Program description

In today's competitive employment market, employers search the ranks of MBA graduates to find the best talent available, so studying the right MBA programme may be the best investment you can make for your future.

Buckingham Business School came first out of all UK Business Schools in the 2008 National Student Survey. We did so well because of our focus on high academic quality, good teaching, full and constructive feedback, and ongoing caring support. Our students comment very positively about the enthusiasm and expertise of their tutors.

At Buckingham, we recognise that business has become more global, more entrepreneurial and more concerned with environmental matters and social responsibility. We proactively monitor current research and news events to ensure that our students develop knowledge of changes and debates that are impacting on business today.

Our students come from a range of different countries so gain first hand experience of working in multi-cultural groups – recognised as being vital for networking in expanding global businesses.

The MBA Programme begins in January each year with nine weeks of assimilation modules to ensure an understanding of a full range of business subjects. These assimilation modules are followed by three terms of study, finishing in December of the same year. The programme outline will provide you with detailed information on the individual courses studied each term, throughout the programme.

MBA classes will typically comprise 12 to 18 students, as we limit our intake each year to enable us to give full attention to the development of our students. Tutorial groups are even smaller (a maximum of 8 students) to encourage interaction. This allows students to benefit from the expert guidance of our experienced tutors to develop skills and knowledge.
