The structured syllabus enables participants to move beyond a domestic business mindset to consider issues and seek solutions in a truly global context. Each module provides advanced and applied knowledge of key aspects of international business.

Placing emphasis on practical experience and work-based learning, students are encouraged to go beyond the classroom. All assignments are based on genuine challenges faced by organisations through the case study method.

While the general MBA Global pathway focuses on key themes such as risk management and global supply chain management,, the MBA Global Finance pathway enables you to explore international finance, and mergers and acquisitions in greater detail.

The faculty have extensive business and management experience in a wide range of organisations. They continue to undertake research and consultancy to refresh their knowledge and share it with students. In addition, students will be able to interact with guest speakers from a variety of sectors and professions and also participate in several conferences and business events at the University.

Full members of ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) or CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), or already holding the CMI L7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership would be eligible for exemptions from up to three modules on the MBA Global and MBA Global Finance, equivalent to 60 credits.
