  • Be able to communicate ideas effectively in writing, in discussions and presentations. Basic IT skills, such as word-processing, email and Internet are expected.
  • Have work experience; we value diversity of experience in our student body, therefore we welcome applications from recent graduates who have undertaken meaningful placements as well as those with all levels of work experience. We are more interested in the impact that you have had in your workplace than the length of time spent.

Program content

Semester One

Accounting and Reporting

This module examines accounting from a holistic perspective by examining not only financial and management accounting topics, but also those sources of value that include the social, environmental, and governance impacts of business activities.

Marketing Management

This module offers a conceptual basis for making marketing decisions in a fast-changing business environment where organisations face competitive, social and environmental challenges in delivering customer value and achieving their business objectives. Marketing management requires a broad understanding of consumer behaviour and contemporary marketing strategies related to product development and management, pricing, distribution and communication, to enable decision making that reflects an understanding of their ethical, social and sustainability impacts.

Managing New Technologies

This module provides the theoretical framework that will allow students to gain a critical understanding of the importance of management information systems in an organisation and explore its application in their own business environment. They will also be introduced to dynamic new technologies and will examine the possibilities that new technologies would bring to their own organisations.

Managing People

This module concentrates on how people are managed as a resource, and how best to leverage the important resource they provide, while also behaving responsibly and ethically. The module also includes a focus on written skills, as this is key to most business settings where HR and other managers must compete for limited resources.

Semester Two

Leadership and Managing Change

This module focuses on responsible leadership of change which is leadership that not only anticipates, plans and implements change efficiently and effectively but does so in an environmentally sustainable way, with a high regard for ethical principles and due care for the interests of stakeholders.

Managerial Finance

In this module, we provide a framework for firms to make optimal decisions to achieve the firm’s objective. Conventionally, we regard this as being to maximise the value of the firm, but very early in the module, we critically discuss the limitations and implications of this assumption in light of corporate social responsibility and sustainability. 

Business Law

The module initially provides students with an overview of legal systems as well as theoretical and policy frameworks for the regulation of business and government activity, with a view to enhancing students’ legal risk management skills. 

Strategic Decision Making

This module focuses on strategic management as a dynamic process that deals with the challenges posed by the highly turbulent and global environment of the 21st century. It is designed to sharpen students’ ability to think strategically, to evaluate organisational situations from a strategic perspective and to reach sound strategic decisions.

Semester Three

Capstone Project

The aim of this module is to consolidate students’ learning acquired throughout their MBA into a single Capstone Project. Students will carry out an independent study on a topic of their choice. They will have the opportunity to apply the comprehensive theoretical knowledge, understanding and skills that they obtained throughout the MBA to an area of interest within either their own workplace setting, an organisation of their own choosing or a company quoted on the New York or London Stock Exchange.

Scholarships & funding

The University of Gibraltar hosts or directly offers a number of scholarship programmes to support your studies. Scholarships are available to support undergraduate, Master’s degree and PhD programmes and are made available to students based on certain criteria.

 Please check the university website for more information.

Program delivery

This course is also available as a part-time for 2 years

Tuition fees

  • Home Full-time: £14,500
  • Home Part-time: £7,250

Qualification

The MBA acknowledges the knowledge and skills components of a Level 7 award. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be able to demonstrate knowledge and skills as outlined below.

An MBA also benefits those for whom their undergraduate degree was not in a business related area (e.g. pharmaceutical, engineering, medical and healthcare, education). By providing a comprehensive grounding in business and management, it thus paves the way for them to attain management and leadership positions.

Career opportunities

The main target audience for the MBA are those business professionals who wish to enhance their career prospects or change their direction, as well as recent graduates who have undertaken meaningful placements or work experience. The MBA will provide high level application skills across key aspects of business and management as well as the opportunity to apply the learning in a chosen area of interest (e.g. FinTech).
