Study programme

The programme is delivered in a distinctive and innovative way that will strengthen your current knowledge and skill set and further develop business capabilities that will last you a professional lifetime. The programme adopts a building block approach and focuses on five key pillars from day one:

Pillar 1: Boot Camp

This compulsory training week is designed to bring all students together on an equal footing at the start of the programme. The knowledge acquired at Boot Camp will be used as a base for the first study module: ‘Organisational Context’.

Pillar 2: Two Module Blocks

The International MBA focuses on just two taught modules at a time. This allows students to immerse themselves in the content of those modules and to have more time for recommended reading and group work.

Pillar 3: Live Business Simulation(s)

The introduction of business simulation ‘games‘ into specific modules of the programme focuses on practical learning. Teams of students work within a competitive setting, in which you apply your skills in key areas such as strategy development and decision making, using a wide set of variables. Importantly, business simulations take place in your own time allowing you to forge strong relationships and networks throughout the programme – learning from peers and gaining international business contacts.

Pillar 4: Assessment Strategy

Individual and group assignments, examinations, business games, reflective statements, coursework presentations and peer assessments will be used to develop and assess academic, professional and practical skills.

Pillar 5: Contextual Capability Building

BPP University is the university for the professions – where practitioner experience complements teaching skills and educational qualifications. Our faculty brings with it a wealth of business experience from diverse industries and global markets. Many come with backgrounds gained from multinational Fortune 500 organisations, others with experience in entrepreneurial pursuits and not-for-profit sectors. All of our team embrace a practical, hands-on approach that is relevant to real business situations.

Employability Skills and Academic Practice module (ESAP)*

Our Employability Skills and Academic Practice module (ESAP)* is designed to enhance your employability by developing your career ready and transferable skills. This module is a feature of the 18-month full-time programme. It gives you the opportunity to complete your Master’s with practical work experience. This work experience can be a paid or unpaid job, short-term internship, employer-led or Professional Body project, consultancy work or volunteering.
