You begin with an induction and workshop on building high performance teams, followed by a series of sector insights and career management workshops during the first few weeks of your MBA where we will help support your career action planning, and focus on maximising your MBA experience. Later in your programme, you will undertake a Development Centre to challenge you and your MBA colleagues through a series of typical senior management assessment activities to prepare you for success through recruitment and selection processes.
Learning with and from your peers
Syndicate group work is an essential part of the Full-time MBA, allowing you to perfect your presentation and negotiation skills. You will be part of the same group for the entirety of your required modules and will become part of different groups as you undertake your electives, this can include both Executive and Distance learning participants. This is one of the most enriching aspects of our MBA, not only do you develop your knowledge in various subjects but it also exposes you to people from different nationalities and cultures, building your global business experience and professional network.
We take a creative approach to teaching, using film, drama, business simulation software and role play on different modules during the course. This allows you to apply your learning to real life scenarios, try out new leadership techniques and generate creative responses to challenges. By building your leadership and management skills you can increase your confidence and prepare for any scenario.
