The MBA (Armed Forces)

An MBA qualification is one of the most recognised business management degrees in the world. Successfully completing the qualification comes with its challenges. The degree requires commitment from you in order to successfully complete assignments, pass examinations and fulfil the dissertation requirements to obtain the qualification. This MBA builds upon the effective management and commanding leadership skillsthat you have learned in the Armed Forces. This  high quality 'taught and fully supported' learning programme delivers the knowledge and skills that are demanded by employers, or for those who wish to start their own business. Our experienced, practitioner-focussed teaching staff provide you with the latest thinking and developments in leadership and management, while the variety and content of modules ensures that both academic and vocational perspectives are considered.

 

The course has been designed with a wide range of modules to encourage you to look at your role and your existign skills from new angles. Throughout the course, you’ll enjoy a healthy blend of academic and vocational perspectives, and our practitioner-focused teaching staff will guide you in the latest thinking and developments in business management. Inspirational lectures, energetic seminars and focused study groups are all integral to this enriching business management course.

 

Our MBA  offers practical leadership and management skills. You’ll look at a broad range of topics including marketing, finance, enterprise and research methods, plus you’ll have the chance to select a relevant independent study towards the end of your course. The result is a distinct increase in employability and effectiveness in a position of leadership, all tailored to your personal aspirations. Management education has changed significantly over the last few decades. Previously it focused on areas such as finance and operations and as a result MBA courses focused on data and were out of touch with the challenges managers face in the real world. We have expanded our MBA to include: international issues; marketing; strategy; corporate responsibility and governance; organisational behaviour and leadership. Our MBA will add value more through increasing your ability to lead and manage others than through developing your talents as an individual contributor. In short, we are preparing you for senior management by developing your soft skills within a group of your peers. We are developing a learning community: we emphasise working in groups as you will often learn as much from your peers as you do from your lecturers.
