Master of Business Administration (MBA)


Please note: This course will not be running in October 2018. We are still (provisionally) accepting candidates for October 2019. Please contact us at the link below for further details or to apply for next years intake.


Most MBA programmes require prospective students to have a few years of industry work experience. We are one of only a few institutions in England offering a one-year MBA programme that does not require previous work experience. You can progress straight from your undergraduate degree to this MBA without needing a business background. 

This course is for aspiring managers in all employment sectors. We aim to equip you with the requisite knowledge and skills for the effective management of organisations and people. You will gain a thorough understanding of business and management skills (e.g. leadership, communication, negotiation, research, team building and interpersonal skills).

This will enable you to improve your performance and accelerate your career development with confidence.
