The University of Greenwich MBA is an internationally recognised Master’s degree in business administration and management. It prepares managers for organisation-wide leadership and decision making by examining each of the functions of business in turn. Building on this broad foundation, the MBA focuses on the integrative disciplines of business strategy and the management of change, leading to a real-world consultancy project and an individual piece of business research, submitted as a dissertation. The programme approaches leadership thematically from the starting points of creativity, practicality and social resourcefulness, and focuses strongly on the personal development of participants, including career management.
The MBA International Business programme explores the complexity and diversity of business in an increasingly interconnected world and is designed to reflect the increased emphasis on the multidisciplinary and international perspective arising from today’s market developments as well as an employers’ expectation to integrate the theoretical knowledge and applied skills in training modern working force.
The programme will help students develop skills in assessing the global environment for business, identifying new international business opportunities and analysing international markets and industries. A particular feature of the programme is commercial relevance and employability, designed to enhance knowledge and skills particularly sought by employers.
