Course structure


MBA, One year full time

Master of Business Administration


The School of Management has been running a successful MBA programme for over 14 years. In 2005 the school made some changes to the MBA structure giving students with less than three years’ managerial work experience, the opportunity to attain this award. This is a new programme started in September 2005 and has been a resounding success, designed for younger graduates with little or no relevant work experience.

The MBA consists of 120 taught credits and a 60-credit dissertation. Normally you will study three modules in each of two semesters. Semesters are 15-week blocks and run from September to December and January to June. You will be expected to work on your own and in groups to complement this. After completing the taught element you will be able to proceed to the dissertation stage. During this part of the course you will be assigned a supervisor to work with.

Part one comprises International Management, an optional module and Research and Skills Analysis in the first semester and International Business and Trade, an optional module and Strategic Management in semester two. The second stage consists of the dissertation.

Options are chosen from: Human Resource Management, Marketing, Finance, Business Information Systems or Management.

An important element in studying an MBA is the acquisition of skills. You will develop analytical abilities as well as essential managerial skills such as team working, leadership and effective communications. An ability to interpret data is also developed through modules such as International Management and International Business and Trade. By the time you reach the final dissertation, you will be able to apply these to the investigation of a major strategic issue.
