Course description

Our Executive MBA is an internationally recognised qualification for managers and other business professionals who have at least three years' work experience. It gives you an up-to-date understanding of current academic thinking in the discipline of management. Through our ambitious team of academics and practitioners we inform and inspire the change of existing managerial paradigms. It is important that leaders are equipped with the relevant competency, knowledge and skill sets in order to create real competitive advantage for organisations.

This course is available as both an apprenticeship and a standard part-time programme and normally takes 2 years part-time or 2.5 years part-time for the apprenticeship route. Once you have successfully completed the apprenticeship, you can choose to register as a member with the Chartered Management Institute and/or the Institute of Leadership and Management to support your professional career development and progression.
