Course Description

The Imperial College London MBA by distance learning offers the opportunity to study for this highly desirable qualification without the disruption and many of the costs associated with attendance MBAs. With the increasing popularity of the MBA qualification, numerous institutions now offer the opportunity to study for the MBA. However, not all MBA qualifications are equivalent! Employers are increasingly aware of this fact and it has become vital to make sure that your MBA comes from a reputable university. Imperial College has the necessary reputation to endorse your MBA to prospective employers anywhere in the world. The programme starts in the September of each year and applications are accepted from March. The programme offers considerable flexibility of study. How much study time will I need to allow for each module? The study time required for each module is, on average, five hours per week over a period of 31 weeks. Will I need to buy any books in addition to the study material provided? No, all the material you will need to complete the module is included in your study material. In addition to the material written by the module authors, there are a set of readings and usually one or two textbooks, depending on the module. Is there any face to face tuition involved? We require you to attend just one module (The Imperial Edge module) any year after your second year on a face-to-face basis. This is a three-week programme held at the South Kensington campus in London - see details of this module under the Study programme tab. All other modules are studied entirely on a distance basis with contact being made through our virtual/on-line environments. Where are exams held? In most cases exams are held in a place near where you live - often British Council offices - so you do not need to come to London. For certain countries this may not be possible to organise and special one off arrangements will then be made. How long will it take? The minimum time required is two years, but students are registered for four years. You can study up to five modules a year, but if after starting your studies you think this is too much, or your circumstances change, you may defer one or all of the modules until the following year. For students with demanding jobs, we recommend that you attempt no more than three modules in any one year. What order must I take the modules in? Students must study core modules before studying the specialisation and project, but can take these core modules in any order. Can I obtain credits for courses taken at another university? No. Imperial College does not give credits for courses taken at any other institution. Overview of Distance Learning MBA Programme The programme has a modular structure and consists of three elements: core courses, a specialisation, and a research project. Students can choose up to a maximum of five modules to study each year. Due to the demanding nature of the modules, however, we would advise that you do not attempt more than three in any one year. Students are registered with the Imperial College for four years. The study year begins in early September, and continues until the exams in mid-May. All modules follow this study year. You will be sent a comprehensive study pack for each course. The package includes: a detailed Study guide that includes exercises, assignments and other activities, which will take you through your programme of self-directed study Books and other published materials together with integrated volumes of readings drawn from a wide range of sources Supplementary study materials eg lectures on CD Rom Over the year, you have access to an On-line Learning Environment (Blackboard). Here you can discuss your studies with your tutors and other students by posting and answering questions on-line. For each module, you also submit two assignments (worth 30%) of the total mark and receive feedback from your tutors. Core modules (Modules 1 - 8) Managing People and Organisat
