Program Description


University of Derby Online Learning

All over the world, the MBA is the recognised management and leadership qualification. It's formal recognition that you have the strategic knowledge, insight and understanding to become a successful manager – and an inspiring leader.

A minimum of 2-3 years supervisory experience is required before you can begin this online MBA and must be evidenced with your application. This Masters degree is a popular choice for busy professionals from all over the world, who want the benefits of this top level qualification, without having to travel to attend fixed lectures or fit in with someone else’s timetable.

An MBA approved by your professional body

It’s one of only a few MBAs in the UK that has been accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) – the UK's professional body for managers and leaders. That proves our course meets the highest professional management standards and means you can apply for Chartered Manager status* once you’ve finished.*

Chartered Manager status requires a formal application process to CMI that includes an assessment questionnaire, submission of an Independent Business Impact Study (not an Independent Study or Dissertation) and an assessment interview. Additional costs may apply direct to the CMI.

Professional top-up routes and exemptions

Plan your study around your commitments

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.

Theory that means something in the workplace

Because we asked key people working in industry to help us design this MBA, you can be confident that it will give you the skills desired by top employers. In addition, we constantly encourage you to put your new knowledge to the test at work and evaluate its success – particularly in the Business Impact Study; a more practical alternative to the traditional dissertation or Independent Study as it’s now known. If you aren’t currently employed, don’t worry; we will use real case studies so you can still see how this knowledge can be applied.
