Both programmes aim to prepare you for strategic leadership in a rapidly changing world.

The programmes will develop an understanding of:

  • the nature and complexity of the global challenges facing businesses;
  • the importance of strategic leadership as an approach to achieving success in a rapidly changing environment;
  • the key management functions associated with finance, accounting, strategic marketing; organisation and operations;
  • how markets and international economies work;
  • the responsibilities of businesses as stewards of financial, social and natural capital.

In addition the two programmes will develop:

  • your confidence in decision-making through the applied analysis of real business problems;
  • your ability to think strategically and holistically when planning new business solutions;
  • a passion for innovation and entrepreneurial action;
  • a global mind-set with sensitivity to the impact of differences of culture and context on strategy;
  • advanced communication and interpersonal skills for effective leadership.

Both programmes take a global perspective, although the opportunities for international travel on each programme are different in scope and extent.

On our 12-month MBA, there is an opportunity to study International Business in Context (a one-week intensive module located in an emerging market) and to undertake your Capstone Project focused on a country outside of the UK.

On our 16-month MBA, the international opportunities are greater. You will spend 2-3 months on exchange with one of our international partner Universities (USA, Canada, China, Italy, France, Finland, Australia, Mexico or Spain) and a further 2 months on an international internship.
