Weekend Executive MBA
In recent years the MBA degree has become the foremost academic qualification for managers. Academics and industrialists alike have recognised the value of the degree in developing staff for the challenges of the rapidly changing business environment. Research has shown that the award of the MBA assists the personal development of managers, as well as benefiting their career and professional life.
One of the strengths of our MBA programmes is the diversity of programme members’ backgrounds and experiences. The range of functional, professional and vocational skills and knowledge that participants bring to the programme allows the lecturing faculty to test the validity of theoretical concepts against a rich background of personal and organisational outlooks.
The programmes encourage individuals from all walks of life, and from all organisational and working backgrounds. Engineers, accountants, legal practitioners, those in the caring professions and other technically-based professionals, can all benefit from the experience of the MBA. Indeed, the programme is rooted in the belief that the wider the range of programme members’ backgrounds and experiences the more it aids the learning process.
