More about Master of Business Administration

Our Master of Business Administration incorporates feedback from the industry to ensure the content is relevant to the current business market. Our aim is for you to graduate with a broad understanding of how businesses function, how they are managed and how they are governed. This will prepare you for a leadership role and more responsibility, or to go on and create your own business.

You’ll refine your complex problem solving skills, learn how to make decisions in uncertain times and with incomplete data, as well as developing your critical thinking abilities. In addition to this, you’ll also improve the essential ‘soft’ skills needed of managers and leaders such as communication, negotiation, networking and team building.

A key element of our MBA is its focus on making sense of the current volatile and uncertain business world. You’ll study the impact of accelerating climate change, technology development and global politics on the world’s business economy.

Insights into the wider role of businesses in addressing societal problems in a sustainable manner will also develop your understanding of ethical management and governance, preparing you for an exciting career ahead.
