The Aberystwyth MBA

General

Program Description

The Aberystwyth MBA is taught through a balanced curriculum, including theory, workshops, and case studies taken from the international arena. An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training in the latest strategic managerial and organizational developments in both the public and private sectors. You will collect and analyse relevant information across a range of areas pertaining to a current situation, synthesise the information into a form appropriate for evaluation of decision alternatives, and engage with people from different cultural backgrounds in order to raise the level of organizational awareness and thinking.

As a participant in the MBA programme, you will study current management theory and acknowledged best practice in areas such as leadership, operations, corporate governance and sustainability. The programme includes coverage of human resource management and organizational behaviour. The study of financial analysis and decision making emphasises the uses of financial and accounting data to inform and improve strategic decisions and operations. The coverage of business economics emphasises the external context, as well as the economic foundations, for business decision-making across a range of functional areas.
