Graduate view
Ilya Bykov

'This course helped me secure two promotions, including a move to a senior global role at HSBC, where I now lead strategic negotiations with corporate service providers. MBA and professional body accreditations provided me with recognised educational status and essential knowledge, allowing me to lead large-scale projects.'

Ilya Bykov, Executive MBA, 2017 graduate


How you learn

To be a successful leader, you need to understand, implement and integrate the current fundamental concepts of business, and have insights from differing professional perspectives. You gain this knowledge on our course by studying core MBA subjects within four integrated modules. Completing an integrated module means that instead of studying finance or globalisation in isolation, you study finance together with globalisation, marketing and decision making. Our approach replicates the real world where strategic decisions will span multiple business areas, providing you with a richer and more realistic learning experience.

At the diploma stage of the course, you have the opportunity to complete psychometric tests, which can help you increase your critical self-awareness, better understand your leadership skills and identify areas for development. Additionally, you have the opportunity to work on a consultancy project that involves investigating a real issue within your own organisation, or one with which you are familiar.

Over the course, we tailor assignments and projects to the needs of your organisation or your own areas of interest, which maximises the value of your studies. Your organisation also has the opportunity to provide input into your learning and contribute to your development.

When you study an Executive MBA at Sheffield Hallam University you join a learning community of managers and leaders from across a range of professions and industry backgrounds. This provides you with excellent networking opportunities and you can benefit from seeing different perspectives and solutions to managerial challenges.
