Course Details

MBA route - There is a mix of traditional ‘hard core’ academic business master’s modules consisting of strategy, finance, marketing and HRM, which continue to be the foundation for this type of programme. The programme routes offer other modules, drawing on a wide range of bodies of knowledge, which reflect the context within which an organisation is required to trade. 

MBA (Marketing) route - The inclusion of the Marketing route is particularly distinctive and is readily embedded within the programme. The overarching teaching and learning strategy encompass current business and marketing issues together with issues arising within the students’ workplaces if, and where, appropriate. This ensures the threefold framework of skills, mindset and knowledge are oriented towards this particular body of expertise version of the taught element of the programme for students electing to take this route.

MBA (HRM) route - Similarly, the HRM route is of increasing relevance where people are the foundation of a vibrant world economy, and requires a mindset that is supported by an understanding of HRM practices where transferable business knowledge and key management skills are important. During the generic taught modules, students will be encouraged and supported to bring HRM issues into classroom debate as a pre-including and emphasising current issues in their assignments. When reaching the dissertation stage, again there would be a clear expectation that HRM students would base their final projects on a research topic that is of international relevance.
