Description

The MBA Course provides students with the opportunity to develop considerable specialised and general business knowledge, and their decision making, analytical, leadership, interpersonal and communication skills. The acquisition and development of these five key skills is embedded in all aspects of the course. In addition to content relating to key functional areas (corporate strategy; strategic marketing; finance; operations; and information systems), the MBA course offers students the opportunity to explore personal development issues, to gain insights into innovation, and to develop expertise in entrepreneurship and data science. Students may also explore how to manage people across cultures, will refine project management skills, and will conduct a major, evidence-based project. The MBA’s focus on academically rigorous and managerially relevant content ensures that, upon graduation, students are well equipped to perform to a high standard in the contemporary world of business.

By the end of the course, students will be able:

  • To develop students’ knowledge and critical understanding of organisations, their management and the changing internal and external contexts in which they operate;
  • To enable students to enter management positions with an ability to deliver results and/or to prepare students for further research in management disciplines (e.g. DMBA);
  • To develop students’ critical understanding of the complexity of business and management in order to improve the effectiveness of decision-making in organisations;
  • To develop managers who can contribute a balanced outlook which incorporates an ability to evaluate economic, environmental, social and ethical concerns;
  • To develop enduring skills and an appreciation that these skills can be enhanced and developed through life-long learning.
  • To develop the necessary knowledge, critical understanding and skills to enable students to enhance their employability in an increasingly competitive environment.

Career Prospects

The MBA equips the student with skills and knowledge to manage and lead a business to success. It also provides ample opportunities when choosing a career path since it provides knowledge in finance, HR, marketing, operations and much more. Students who successfully complete this course may also opt to start their own business and venture out by becoming entrepreneurs themselves. The most popular MBA jobs are HR manager, business consultant, marketing manager, investment or finance manager, management analyst and many more. Therefore students who aspire to climb the career ladder and focus on management as their career aspiration are encouraged to choose an MBA as part of their academic journey.
