Study Details

MBA/PGDip/PGCert 2 -5 years part-time online

Are you looking for a career change or to develop your career? Are you considering a move into management? In today’s globally connected environment, a manager’s practice needs to be ethically based and culturally sensitive.

This course will enhance your ability to respond to the needs of the modern world by thinking critically and strategically in seeking solutions to complex problems. An MBA qualification will help you work towards better career prospects and salary.

The course consists of three distinct but interconnected stages:

  • Certificate - The modern enterprise and business environment – how does it work? 
    The Certificate phase will develop a resource based view of the business enterprise and examine how value is created, including the impact of the wider business environment on the enterprise’s value creation activities.
  • Diploma - Preparing for tomorrow – what needs to change? 
    In the Diploma stage the focus shifts to considering the manager’s role in the development of an enterprise in response to the internal and external context, to create sustainable value.
  • Masters – Management in action – bringing about change 
    The Masters phase of the programme will focus more specifically on particular sectors and /or roles (including general management and leadership) depending on your chosen pathway. The emphasis will be on exploring, critically evaluating and applying a range of sector/ role specific models and concepts within a practice setting/ context.
