OUR MBA PROGRAMMES
The new generation Leeds MBA launches in 2013. It is based on a coaching and mentoring model of leadership development. Firstly you build the foundations by learning about strategy and leadership for a challenging world from leading academics and practitioners. Then you apply your learning to significant business issues through a set of live challenges. You can then elect to take a pathway in a high-growth area to tailor your learning to best suit your MBA career goals. We typically offer pathways in Finance, Marketing, Strategic Human Resource Management, Strategy and Leadership or International Business.
We encourage you to develop your knowledge and links with the corporate world through our business speaker events and international study tours. The MBA culminates in your Summer Project this can be a consultancy project, an internship, an entrepreneurial project relating to a new business venture or a research dissertation.
