The Sunderland MBA is designed to accelerate your promotion to well-paid positions of leadership. It prepares you for new opportunities in any organisation, in any country. You will develop your strategic knowledge, functional competence and problem-solving ability. You will also learn how to re-apply the best of international management practices and how to implement approaches that deliver outstanding results.
At Sunderland, we focus on problem-solving ability and linking theory to real-world challenges. As part of this, you will visit UK companies, and also learn from guest speakers who share their practical business experiences.
We understand that your MBA is part of an onward journey. We offer extensive career support to help you gain a rapid return on your investment in yourself – and achieve your personal goals.
You will study core modules that include ‘Managing and Leading People’, ‘Global Corporate Strategy’ and ‘International Business Environment’. There is flexibility to choose a dissertation topic and an additional module that reflects your particular interests.
This course is the broadest of our MBA courses. If you prefer, you can pursue a more specialist MBA course that gives a specific reference in the award title to Finance, Marketing, HRM, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Hospitality Management or Supply Chain Management.
