How you learn

Work placements

You gain essential practical and project management experience during a two week work-based consultancy project. This enables you to consolidate all of your learning and put it into practice by completing a real or simulated project for an organisation in the UK.

Towards the end of the course, you can also choose to complete an industry placement lasting up to 12 months. We can help you to gain a placement by running CV and interview skills workshops, and a member of staff will provide support during your placement.

Field trips

At the beginning of the course, you take part in a two-day residential to introduce you to the competencies needed to complete the MBA. You work with an expert mentor to design a personal development programme. Your mentor also guides your progress, helping to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from the MBA and that you achieve your leadership goals.

Networking opportunities

During the course you will be able to attend guest lectures from leading industry experts who provide unique insights into business and management. You will also be able to develop shared learning, business contacts and networking opportunities through your placement experiences, peers, teaching staff and industry experts.
