Our new Online Master of Business Administration (MBA) course will help you to develop your career as a business manager.

The course has three specific pathways. The generic pathway allows you to learn every aspect of modern business administration, with transferable skills you can take to any given sector.

  • MBA
  • MBA (Healthcare Management)
  • MBA (Environmental Management and Sustainability)

If you are looking to further your career in areas of Healthcare Management or Environmental and Sustainability Management, then our two specialist pathways will allow you to do this. You’ll be given valuable insight and specific skills into these two huge sectors of global business.

What’s covered in the course?

Our course provides the opportunity to combine the theory and practice of management, healthcare management, and environmental sustainability in an interactive online environment where you will be studying with other students from internationally diverse background and also have the support and guidance of specialists in the various fields of study.

The programmes of study will provide you with the skills employers really value, so it is the perfect option if you want to change career directions or aim to move up the corporate ladder. You’ll be encouraged to question, analyse and challenge the assumptions that are made about modern organisations and provide innovative solutions to the problems that are encountered in the rapidly changing world of business. We’ll nurture your skills by helping you devise contemporary and forward-thinking strategies and day-to-day tactics that’ll help organisations thrive in a range of business settings.

The Online Master of Business Administration and the two specialist pathways will run on a part-time and full-time basis beginning in September 2016. There will be initially three entry points per calendar year, so we have flexibility in terms of delivery and also starting point.
