The Lincoln International Business School MBA comprises a core and elective modules which aim to connect classroom learning with real organizations. The core modules are designed to build the skills every global manager needs, whilst the elective modules and your dissertation provide you with an opportunity to specialize.
Lectures and seminars offer an opportunity to engage and discuss the fundamentals of global business and leadership through workshops and group tutorials. There is flexibility in the scheduling of our timetable that allows class activities, as well as group and independent study.
The project module is designed to provide an excellent introduction to consultancy. You can engage with a client to conduct a piece of research, relevant to their situation and desires. Students have previously lead Live Consultancy Projects with a number of high profile organizations such as Siemens, British Steel, Dynex and the YMCA.
The Lincoln International Business School MBA includes leadership development activities as well as negotiation workshops as part of the modules offered in blocks. Through your membership with LIBS Connect, you will be able to attend guest lectures from industry speakers and leaders. Previous guest speakers have included University Chancellor Lord Adebowale CBE, BBC Trustee and Non-Executive Director Suzanna Taverne, and the Chief Executive of Siemens pcl Juergen Maier.
MBA study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in-class students are expected to spend two-three hours in an independent study. Taught modules normally have 36 contact hours (lectures, seminars, and workshops) per term.
