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.

Eight taught modules are taken in a minimum of two years and a maximum of four; the rate of progression being determined by the amount of time the student can commit to study. Modules are delivered in two ways: Intensive seven-day blocks offered five times per year, usually in University vacations Evening teaching, two nights per week during the usual University terms Students may take whichever combination of evening or block modules suits them best. Clicking on the list at the head of this page will take you to one giving more details about that particular mode of study and its modules. The syllabus of the part-time programmes has the same global outlook and international dimension as that for the full-time programme. Each module is designed to ensure that students are exposed to both the operational and the strategic aspects of management disciplines through the use of a variety of teaching methods including, lectures, case analysis, and discussion sessions. Entry is usually possible at any point at which a module is delivered, giving seven possible starting points each year. When the taught modules have been completed, a dissertation is then submitted to complete the requirements for the award of the degree. The subject of the dissertation can be related to the student's work environment or to an area of interest to the student's employer, which may encourage the employer to support the student taking the programme with time-off or financial aid. As well as meeting the needs of UK-based students, the modular mode of study is also proving very attractive to international students, who take advantage of our proximity to Birmingham International Airport to fly in and take a module, returning home immediately to their work and other commitments. Students come to us from a wide range of European countries and also from as far away as North and South America, Africa and Central Asia.
