Our MBA programmes can be tailored to suit your individual career aspirations. Alongside studying up-to-the-minute general management theories and techniques, you also have the opportunity to opt for a specialist learning pathway. The various pathways we offer are:
Workshops on the global pathway can be taken in the UK or at one of our global international centres, and present a valuable opportunity to share learning with colleagues and to build up a global network of contacts:
Workshops are a prescribed element of the course and attendance is required for at least 80% of the workshops. The number of MBA students in each workshop session is kept deliberately low, typically 25-30, to maintain their high quality and interactive nature.
Workshop sessions are delivered by senior faculty and a pool of experts from outside the School who are considered leaders in their particular fields. They travel the world teaching at our global centres, so you get the same, consistently high standard of teaching no matter where you are based.
Working in selected groups, and through the use of a blended learning model, you will closely mimic a real working environment.
You will be required to interact with other members of your group, and with the external company employees, through email, discussion groups, video conferencing and face to face meetings. During this time you will also conduct your own personal research and studies.
You will be supported by an academic supervisor, hand-picked for their expert knowledge.
This project will involve:
In the event that a student has corporate sponsorship, an individual project may be undertaken that helps their organisation achieve its goals.
To adapt the programme to suit your varied needs and interest, specialist elective courses can be taken to compliment your core courses. These electives cover a wide spectrum of subjects vital for all global executives. Build the MBA programme that has the right fit for you.
Students enrolled on the Part-time Global MBA will be assessed on the basis of examinations and continuous assessment, the latter comprising of two assignments at set points:
Assignments - 50%
Each course will be assessed on the basis of two pieces of assignments, contributing 50% to the overall course mark. These assignments will either be on the basis of two individual pieces of written work, or one individual written assignment coupled with an assessed group assignment during the residential workshops.
The assessment method is determined by each individual course director and is based on optimising the student learning experience and reflection process - students will be informed of the assessment method for each module at the start of each trimester.
Exams - 50%
A three hour open book* examination, forms an integral part of our MBA programme and carries 50% weighting towards the assessment of each course. Manchester Business School Worldwide operates a global network of exam centres, enabling students to take their exams at one of the many exam venues we have worldwide.
Successful completion and passing of coursework stage and project stage would allow a student to graduate with Master of Business Administration qualification awarded by the University of Manchester in the UK.
Each year the Manchester Business School holds a formal graduation ceremony in Singapore for all of those students who successfully complete the University of Manchester MBA. Students can also attend the graduation ceremony held in Manchester.
