COMPLETE ONE SUBJECT AT A TIME

Students study 6 modules over a period of 12 months, which enables them to undertake more in-depth study of particular topics.

Traditional MBA models involve several individual subjects being offered generally over a 12-week period. For a busy executive, this makes their learning susceptible to external factors such as unexpected work and personal issues that could occur during this time.

The University of Bedfordshire MBA is offered as one subject at a time. This means that students need to focus on just one subject at a time, in addition to their usual personal and professional obligations. The full MBA is achieved upon completion of six modules (a total of 180 credits).

Not only does this develop a more nuanced and sophisticated understanding of the complex nature of organisations and their functioning, but it develops the transferable skills of evaluation and analysis required of senior management.

Practical-based learning

Students will be involved in live management issues through various projects and assessments, developing leadership and management skills, and undertaking both group-based and individual work. Students are also invited to guest lectures by practicing managers, each of whom has extensive experience in their field.

If you are looking for an MBA in Marketing, Finance or HRM that offers a values-led curriculum focused on leadership, innovation, and best practice – UOB MBA becomes the automatic choice.
