Programme Structure

MBA (General)

The MBA is a 18 months part-time degree awarded by Staffordshire University, UK. This award is an advanced course of study in management and aims to provide students with a global perspective of contemporary business challenges and practices.

You will experience a challenging and stimulating intensive course in management, with an international perspective, to enhance your personal and career development. You will study for 18 months under three themes. In the first and second themes, the programme will introduce you to the fundamentals of a performing organization and managing in a challenging environment, respectively. In the third theme, you will undertake a business management research. This is intended not only to develop your knowledge and understanding of the subject matter but also to sharpen your intellectual and entrepreneurial skills in the application of business and management knowledge; you will also gain a practical understanding of how established techniques of business and management strategy are used within a global context.

The teaching and learning strategy adopts a practice-based model where you explore concepts at the intersection of theory and practice using problems to examine dilemmas and choices. You will use, share and reflect upon your experiences alongside those of other students in your class. Your professional development will be supported by the breadth of experience within the cohort of your fellow students.

Learning Teams

A key feature of the MBA programmes is 'Learning Teams'. You will work in groups and engage in peer learning as you undertake practice based activities. This prepares you for the fully independent learning phase when you undertake individual research.
