This course is particularly aimed at graduates who do not have the work experience needed to undertake an MBA. We welcome applications from graduates of any discipline.
You will develop a wide range of competencies that are essential for a successful managerial career. Modules include ‘Developing Skills for Business Leadership’, ‘Managing and Leading People’ and ‘Global Corporate Strategy’. You will also study marketing, operations and financial management. The course culminates in a major project with hands-on application of your new skills and knowledge.
Our teaching is informed by the latest academic research, including research by Sunderland Business School. We link your learning to real-world workplaces by organising visits to external organisations and by inviting guest speakers to share their practical business experience.
If you have previously studied business, the rigorous postgraduate training offers greater insights into effective management. If you have not previously studied business, the course equips you to pursue business opportunities related to your first degree; for example arts graduates can find the course particularly useful.
By the end of the course you will have an edge in applying for well-paid managerial roles. As a result, you can achieve your personal goals and gain a rapid return on your investment in higher education.
