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).

DISSERTATION STAGE

The last four months of the program is your dissertation stage.

Management Practice (Month 9) – Business Simulation

The Business Simulation also known as Boardroom Exercise, is one of the most challenging but rewarding aspects of our MBA. The module is a real-life simulation of a boardroom and will give you the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned during the core modules to a real board-level management team in an international organisation. This will allow you to enhance your analytical, critical thinking, and strategic management skills and will also give you the opportunity to network with a number of different business professionals to develop key business relationships.

Theory into Practice Project (Month 10-12)

This 45 Credit unit, allows students to carry out independent research and develop their skills in analysis and scholarly expression, using an appropriate theoretical framework. They are supported in writing their dissertation through the study of research methods, and attending individual meetings with an allocated supervisor, who monitors their progress and provides advice.

THE BEDS MBA EXPERIENCE

Longevity and Reputation

The programme combines core MBA disciplines with innovative subject areas to provide ‘the Big Picture’ of business life which underpins career success in strategic management and leadership.

Coverage

The core programme is wide-ranging and includes modules such as leading and managing organisational resources, strategy and the global competitive environment and management practice.

Critique

Many MBA degrees offered elsewhere are principally formulaic. With the UOB MBA at Oxford College of Business, we actively encourage students to fundamentally question generally-accepted management and leadership wisdom by drawing upon the full range of social scientific knowledge. 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.
