MBA (Master of Business Administration)
Faculty of Social Sciences
Experiential learning is at the heart of the Sheffield MBA. Our programme is designed to provide unique 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 is diverse and tailored to each student’s journey, individual development needs and career aspirations. Our world-class academics will inspire and challenge you to apply your learning to live organisational issues.
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.
