As an MBA student at the University will be taught through traditional classroom learning and self-directed research. Your dissertation supervisor will help you choose a topic that matches your interests and career goals.

Your MBA will be assessed through the dissertation and several assignments, along with exams for some subjects.
The aim of the MBA (Finance) course is to give students with the suitable academic qualifications the support they need to move up in their careers.
All levels of practical work and work experience will be considered including applications from candidates who haven't yet graduated, and students with little or no work experience, as long as they can show that the course will benefit their future career.
All applications are subject to University approval.
Alongside academic qualifications, you must also have a minimum level of English language skills. If English is not your first language, please see our English language requirements.
Accreditation of prior learning (APL)
If you think you already know some of the topics covered in this course, either because of past education or from work experience, you may not need to study all of the courses.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) is the name given to the process of getting credit that goes towards a qualification because of something you have learned in the past. If you can receive APL you won't have to learn the same topic again. That means you may not need to complete a certain module, set of modules or year of a course.
