The MBA is an ‘early career’ leadership and management programme, designed to equip students with the concepts, techniques and skills required to thrive in their future career – able to make both an immediate impact (through the knowledge and skills that they develop) and a long-term difference (through gained strategic insights and opportunities for personal reflection) to the organisations that they join or create.  The programme will help develop students who are able to work in highly competitive, dynamic, and volatile markets and support organisations to evolve to meet these external challenges, effectively leading and managing cross-cultural teams and projects.

Our MBA programme has been designed to enhance academic knowledge and foster the career development of its graduates. It caters to individuals from all educational backgrounds who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of business leadership, aspire to start their own ventures, or seek to transition from specialised roles to management.

Our MBA programme is rooted in the belief that management education should provide a comprehensive introduction to various facets of managerial functions. Central to our programme are three key themes: responsible leadership and management, global career enhancement and sustainable business development, which shape the curriculum and students’ overall experience.

The MBA programme delves into strategic management decision-making, emphasising the integrative nature of factors involved in developing well-rounded international business leaders. Skill development, both in management and personal capacities, is at the heart of our course design and educational approach, as students explore core concepts within a multicultural and global framework.  Sustainability, ethical and responsible business practices are interwoven throughout the course to instil in students a critical understanding of operating as ethical leaders in business environments.
