Course Description

As a school of management , not just a business school, we believe passionately that theory is nothing without practice and ideas cannot come alive without action. We know that your success as a manager and business leader depends not just on what you know, but also on how you apply what you know, and we are committed to helping you succeed. Part-time Classes take place at Cranfield on 15 weekends - all day Friday and Saturday, plus three one-week residential periods each year. The Cranfield MBA is not just a collection of different modules; it is a carefully integrated cycle of learning, taking you through different phases from laying foundations to application and integration. Personal and professional development is at the heart of the Cranfield MBA and is a module that runs throughout your programme, helping you develop the people skills that are necessary when working at a senior level of management. Our dedicated career development team will work closely with you throughout your programme to help you realise your career aspirations. Many of the career-related activities are integrated into the taught modules.

Written projects come in a variety of forms: individual essays, group reports and 'Written Analysis of a Case' (WAC) assignments.

The WACs are set under strict conditions of time and length and are designed to teach you the skill of business report writing under time pressure.
