The MBA in Global Business has been specifically designed to develop a fully rounded business leader with transferrable skills that will enable him/her to attain the necessary capabilities and tools to succeed in a wide range of business disciplines, industries and sectors.
During the course, students get to develop and practice their own leadership and management skills through a multi-disciplinary, action learning approach which is therefore focused upon group work, real-world activities, all of which are underpinned by individual research, analysis and synthesis.
The course is global in that it attracts an international student body. It reflects business systems, standards and practices from around the world and draws upon international case studies and fosters intercultural fluency among students.
The course will develop students as individuals who are well-equipped to meet the leadership challenges of the future. They will, therefore, emerge from the course with well-developed powers of analysis, clear perspectives on strategy and strategic thinking, and highly effective communication and research skills, all of which are demanded by employers in the private, public, and third sectors.
You’ll study a total of 9 modules and a capstone business project, where in your final term you develop a business plan. You’ll advance your skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, data analysis, effective communication, leadership and management.
