MBA Global & MBA Global Finance Overview


Our MBA Global develops both subject knowledge and an impressive portfolio of transferable skills. You’ll benefit from regular career planning sessions which will help you identify the sectors and job roles that appeal to you, and help you understand how to put your new skills to use within industry. The programme is cleverly structured so that you can move beyond a domestic business mindset, to consider issues and seek solutions in a truly global context. Each module focuses on key aspects of international business.  

The specifics

We offer two pathways – the MBA Global and the MBA Global Finance. You can choose the one that best matches your existing experience, current role or future plans. Both give you a thorough grounding in strategic leadership, financial performance management, global operations, markets and resources, business research methods and data analysis.

The MBA Global pathway then focuses on key themes such as risk management and global supply chain management. Meanwhile, the MBA Global Finance explores international finance, and mergers and acquisitions in greater detail.

Programme highlights

Our MBA Global has practical experience and work-based learning at its heart. That’s because we believe that the best learning comes by doing – applying the theory, reflecting on your successes and failures, and then adjusting your approach based on that experience.

  • Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) you can apply for Chartered Manager status on completion of the MBA Global or MBA Global Finance
  • Learn through real-world practical scenarios drawn from across the global business arena
  • Build influential networks: your tutors, guest speakers and fellow students will share valuable insights and experiences with you
  • Complete your MBA Global studies with either a dissertation or a company placement project which will harness your skills to deliver corporate solutions
  • Develop vital attributes for business success, such as problem-solving, creativity, team-working, leadership, perseverance and managing risk
  • Option to study in your country combined with intensive study periods in the UK on our Block Delivery programme
