Course Description

The general MBA has International Business and Global Markets as its main focus. It is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) the recognised UK accrediting body. This accreditation covers both the full-time and part-time study modes (including programmes delivered in Singapore and Hong Kong). Only some 35 business schools in the UK have accredited programmes out of the 100+ MBA providers. We are also an EQUIS accredited school. Ten modules are taken and a dissertation is submitted to complete the requirements for the award of the degree. There are compulsory core modules and an extensive range of elective options Depending on the options taken, students can focus on a Special Field in one of the following areas: Marketing Finance International Trade and Finance Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour A range of teaching and learning methods are used, such as case studies to relate theory to practical situations, and important business skills are developed, such as analysis, argument and synthesis. Personal effectiveness is developed in a variety of ways and these include a business simulation weekend, held at a hotel near Oxford, and a leadership and outdoor pursuits event at the University's centre at Coniston in the Lake District. You will also undertake an integrated Personal Development Module designed to enable you to review your development needs and plan the personal development activities you wish to undertake during your MBA. Components include, Networking, Presentation Training, Negotiation for Managers and Team Working. The programme is taught to the same syllabus as the Birmingham MBA and by the same staff, who fly out to Hong Kong and Singapore to teach each module. It is provided in intensive one week blocks with teaching in the evenings and at weekends to dovetail with students other commitments. We work with a local partner in each location so that local support is also available. Teaching is supported by an intranet so that students have access to the teaching materials for their modules, on-line discussion groups and other resources at all times. Modules taught in Hong Kong and Singapore are fully interchangeable with each other and also with the modules taught in Birmingham - so, it's possible for students to complete their Birmingham MBA by studying in one, two or three locations. The degree is fully and solely that of the University of Birmingham and students may attend Degree Congregations in Birmingham to have their MBA awarded by the Chancellor in the Great Hall of the University. At each location we have a partner which is responsible for providing local infrastructure and logistic support. Teaching is to the same syllabus as the corresponding Birmingham MBA programme and by the same University of Birmingham staff. This programme is in all respects a full University of Birmingham course and qualification. Indeed modules taken in Hong Kong are fully interchangeable with modules delivered at Birmingham so that students can move between the Hong Kong and Birmingham programme, taking part of their course at each, should their personal circumstances make this desirable. Indeed, it is also possible to take modules in Singapore, our other international delivery location, to combine with those taken in Hong Kong and/or Birmingham. Students register for 24 months and take eight intensive modules over this period, submitting a project at the end of the registration period to complete the requirements for their degree. The modules are taught over continuous ten day periods at weekends and in the evenings to enable study to be combined with work commitments. Click here for further timetable details. Each module is designed to ensure that the student is exposed to both the operational and the strategic aspects of management disciplines through the use of innovative and creative teaching methods. These include action learning/research, formal and live case studies and computer assisted learning
