In the final semester of this course, you will have the option to complete the Executive Company Project, the Consultancy project or the Entrepreneurship Project. Each of these projects are offered as an alternative to a traditional theory-based dissertation, giving you the chance to apply your knowledge and experience to a specific project for an organisation, so you can gain real-world experience while studying.
On previous Executive Company Projects, students have gathered content for Leicester City Council to help promote Leicestershire as an attractive destination for investment, while others have worked with Scraptoft Golf Club to provide a full commercial analysis and recommendations for a marketing strategy for its new facility.
Our MBA graduates have landed roles across the globe with companies including Deloitte, Barclays and Software Group.
International student Yihan Zhu, who completed her Accounting and Finance undergraduate degree in China before enrolling on DMU’s Global MBA, will begin working at Barclays in August.
She said: "My course included a language module to help improve my English skills, as well as my work professionalism skills, where I could communicate with people in different industries to gain more of an insight into how they work.
"Working in a team during my course has also been very important in helping me become employed, as it has enhanced my skills so I can solve different problems and complete my work to a high standard."
