Course description

Experiential learning is at the heart of the Sheffield MBA. Our intentionally small programme is designed to provide intimate learning experiences that maximise the potential of each individual as part of a close-knit community. At Sheffield you are not viewed as a number but as an ambitious individual with unique attributes ready to take on the challenge of reaching your full potential.
 
Our MBA programme tailors each student’s journey to individual development needs and career aspirations. It’s an intimate learning experience within an internationally ranked, research-based management school.
 
We understand that the challenges of the 21st century require globally minded individuals who can adapt to rapidly changing environments, understand situations and then lead their organisations forward. To this end we have designed our MBA programme around three core pillars of consultancy, entrepreneurship and leadership.
