MBA

The traditional MBA is a well-recognised academic degree for managers and professionals with work experience. But now the world is more connected, more challenging and dynamic. Employers want more from their managers – not simply knowledge and strategic thinking, but also leadership skills, commitment and creativity. This top global MBA programme (Financial Times Top 100 Global MBA Ranking, 2016) not only integrates business and management theory with practice, but it also puts great emphasis on your personal and professional development. We have worked with our Leaders in Residence to develop an MBA that stretches you academically but also builds in you the key qualities expected of leaders including commercial awareness, interpersonal skills, a genuine depth of understanding of the fundamental business functions and a critical and questioning outlook.

The programme features a set of challenges that allow you to apply what you have learned to significant business issues and for many of our students the MBA Project is the most exciting and rewarding part of their MBA experience.
