Master of Business Administration

Critical Thinking for Tomorrow's Leaders

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is one of the most highly valued and globally recognised qualifications in the business world. 


If you are seeking a senior role in business, the MBA has never been more relevant - or important. Many global businesses expect as standard an MBA from executive applicants. This qualification underscores the candidate's practical experience and appreciation of the theoretical principles and processes driving organisational development.

Peer learning, executive business coaching and networking is a big part of this course. Not only will you have the chance to meet industry leaders and experienced practitioners, who regularly make an appearance on campus at Manchester Met, but much of the MBA appeal is in collaborating with your international peers on enriching and demanding projects that make up the MBA programme.

This MBA is challenging. You will be tested. But you will also be accompanied on the journey to business mastery by a cohort of similarly determined peers rooting not only for their success - but yours.
