The highly international nature of our programme will appeal if you are looking for a career with international mobility. Above all, the MBA prepares you for general management with a global outlook rather than US-centric or Euro-centric one.
Everyone who joins the MBA has different goals, pressures and learning styles while studying. Our intensely experiential programme balances theory and practice with a structure you can tailor to meet your leadership and development needs.
Year One gives you a rigorous and analytical grounding in the techniques and frameworks of global general management. Our Business Fundamentals core and Tailored core enable you to create a programme to suit your goals and development needs.
In Year Two you continue developing your goals. Diverse elective choice reflects the breadth of our faculty's thought leadership. Deepen expertise in a specific area, or broaden your learning. You extend your global focus, engaging with leading companies around the world on a Global Business Experience, or studying with one of our 30+ academic partners on International Exchange. Many students take more internships and demonstrate their commercial acumen working on a real-world commercial challenges in our Business Project elective.
Throughout your MBA experience, you will encounter different career options, potential employers and world-class recruiters. To help you nail that key position after you complete your MBA, the Career Centre offers one-to-one, group and online training and guidance to help you develop your skills.
You can structure your programme to graduate early and can officially exit the programme at 15, 18 or 21 months. To do so, you will need to have met all exit requirements, including completing 10 electives and your Global Business Experience.
Please note, that those going on International Exchange will not be able to exit the programme at 15 months.
