    Aim of Programme


    This Executive MBA has been specifically designed to meet the needs of both practising and aspiring middle and senior managers. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic content, much of the assessment has been designed to ensure that this is applied to a variety of organisational contexts.

    On this programme, you will encounter a variety of teaching and learning approaches. For example, you will spend a significant proportion of your time participating in case exercises and working on assignments in small groups. This will provide an opportunity for understanding different viewpoints, as well as sharing experiences and ideas. Group work will also allow you to practice skills of analysis and, through discussion, to argue for and negotiate solutions to problems.
