Program Description


Sheffield Hallam University


The Sheffield Hallam MBA is designed to give you the skills, knowledge and experience to advance your career into senior management. Our MBA is tailored to you and your individual development needs.

Designed for individuals seeking rapid career progression, our MBA combines professional skills development with real-world experience and personalised coaching. This ensures you gain the skills and knowledge to become an agile and resilient business leader. Your personal development is underpinned by academic and practical experience, which enables you to apply your learning with confidence.

This real-world focus gives you the ability and confidence to create innovative solutions to the challenges you'll face now and in the future. Our approach replicates the reality where strategic decisions will span multiple business areas, providing you with a richer and more realistic learning experience.

As you progress through the course, you apply your learning by problem-solving real or simulated case studies. This enables you to practice and assess the impact of decision making, identifying and dealing with links and tensions between different business areas. You enhance your leadership skills by encountering and managing these varying, often competing, perspectives on management issues.

Critical self-awareness and tailored coaching

At the beginning of the course, you take part in a two-day residential to introduce you to the competencies needed to complete the MBA. You work with an expert mentor to help you to design a personal development programme. Your mentor also guides your progress, helping to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from the MBA and that you achieve your leadership goals.

Practical and project management experience

You gain essential practical and project management experience during a two-week work-based consultancy project. This enables you to consolidate all of your learning and put it into practice by completing a live project for an organisation in the UK.

Towards the end of the course, you can also choose to complete an industry placement lasting up to 12 months. We can help you to gain a placement by running CV and interview skills workshops, and a member of staff will provide support during your placement.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute and successful graduates gain Chartered Manager status (subject to application).

To gain Chartered Management status, you must also have three years of relevant work experience. The placement year option on this course counts towards the experience requirement.

If you only have two years of work experience before beginning the course and do not complete a placement, you will be eligible for Chartered Management status after a further year of work.
