This MBA is designed to update your management toolkit and give you a broader and stronger foundation from which to enhance your career. Critically, the course takes a strategic perspective on business and management that helps you develop the skills needed to contribute to major business decisions.

• Develop your existing skills and knowledge to management level
• Apply your learning to actual business situations
• Gain a strategic perspective on business
