Modules

Delivered by expert teaching staff and industry experts, the full-time MBA is a one-year accelerated programme that usually requires a commitment of sixteen hours class time a week. The part-time study mode is designed to fit around your career and requires a commitment of eight hours class time a week over evenings. The schedule below outlines a typical study plan.

Titles are subject to change. Timings will be different for part-time mode. 

Semester 1

Accounting and Reporting**

This module examines accounting from a holistic perspective by examining not only financial and management accounting topics, but also those sources of value that include the social, environmental, and governance impacts of business activities.

Marketing Management

This module offers a conceptual basis for making marketing decisions in a fast-changing business environment where organisations face competitive, social and environmental challenges in delivering customer value and achieving their business objectives. Marketing management requires a broad understanding of consumer behaviour and contemporary marketing strategies related to product development and management, pricing, distribution and communication, to enable decision making that reflects an understanding of their ethical, social and sustainability impacts.

Managing New Technologies

This module provides the theoretical framework that will allow students to gain a critical understanding of the importance of management information systems in an organisation and explore its application in their own business environment. They will also be introduced to dynamic new technologies and will examine the possibilities that new technologies would bring to their own organisations.

Managing People

This module concentrates on how people are managed as a resource, and how best to leverage the important resource they provide, while also behaving responsibly and ethically. The module also includes a focus on written skills, as this is key to most business settings where HR and other managers must compete for limited resources.

Semester 2

Leadership and Managing Change

This module focuses on responsible leadership of change which is leadership that not only anticipates, plans and implements change efficiently and effectively but does so in an environmentally sustainable way, with a high regard for ethical principles and due care for the interests of stakeholders.

Managerial Finance**

In this module, we provide a framework for firms to make optimal decisions to achieve the firm’s objective. Conventionally, we regard this as being to maximise the value of the firm, but very early in the module, we critically discuss the limitations and implications of this assumption in light of corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

Business Law

The module initially provides students with an overview of legal systems as well as theoretical and policy frameworks for the regulation of business and government activity, with a view to enhancing students’ legal risk management skills.

Strategic Decision Making

This module focuses on strategic management as a dynamic process that deals with the challenges posed by the highly turbulent and global environment of the 21st century. It is designed to sharpen students’ ability to think strategically, to evaluate organisational situations from a strategic perspective and to reach sound strategic decisions.

Semester 3

Capstone Project*

The aim of this module is to consolidate students’ learning acquired throughout their MBA into a single Capstone Project. Students will carry out an independent study on a topic of their choice. They will have the opportunity to apply the comprehensive theoretical knowledge, understanding and skills that they obtained throughout the MBA to an area of interest within either their own workplace setting, an organisation of their own choosing or a company quoted on the New York or London Stock Exchange.

* Students can choose a project that has a general focus or a more specialist focus such as Fintech, New Technologies, Events, Tourism & Hospitality or Gaming.
**Qualified accountants will be eligible to apply for exemption from these modules.
