The CMBA provides an opportunity for individuals to advance their career in business management, as well as for practitioners to sharpen their business management skills and knowledge.
The programme has attracted a highly motivated community of students from diverse academic backgrounds and working experiences. We bring together experienced, dedicated and qualified lecturers to ensure an innovative, application-oriented and multidisciplinary program. The CMBA is outstanding because it has retained the best features of the traditional MBA combined with the contemporary features demanded by today’s business managers.
The CMBA is a master programme by coursework over a minimum duration of 18 months, which is an equivalent study of a minimum of 5 semesters. The programme is structured into three modules, each defining a specific functional area of study. The modules are divided into Core, Elective and Research.

The Elective Module encourages students to explore ideas and to further investigate managerial issues. Students are required to take a total of five courses and are allowed to select any 5 courses from this component to match their interests or career needs.
The Research Module is the final component of the CMBA programme, which consists of the Corporate Business Project. It requires students to demonstrate a critical approach to management problems and to relate specific issues in order to broaden students’ management perspectives.
