This MBA has a particular focus on marketing, giving you a fast track towards senior roles in marketing.
You will develop a deep strategic understanding of the different functions within organisations. You will also learn how to re-apply the best of international management practices and how to implement approaches that deliver outstanding results.
In addition to the core elements completed by all our MBA students, you will also complete a specialist module: either ‘E-Marketing’ or ‘International Marketing’. You will also undertake a dissertation related to marketing.
At Sunderland, we focus on problem-solving ability and linking theory to real-world challenges. As part of this, you will visit companies both in the UK and in Europe, and also learn from guest speakers who share their practical business experiences.
We understand that your MBA is part of an onward journey. We offer extensive career support to help you gain a rapid return on your investment in yourself.
If you prefer, you can choose to pursue our broad-based MBA or an MBA that has a specific reference in the award title to Marketing Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain Management, Finance, HRM or Hospitality Management.
Students who successfully obtain their MBA will also be awarded CMI level 7 extended diploma (which is the highest level of accreditation in the UK for an MBA from the CMI). Students will also have associate membership whilst studying and benefit from extensive networking opportunities.
