Management MBA

Overview

Course facts

  • Name: Management
  • Qualification: MBA
  • Duration: 1 year full-time; 3 years part-time. This programme offers both January and September start.

CMI LogoThis programme is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). From September 2017, students of this programme will graduate with the dual award of a Bangor University Masters and a Level 7 CMI qualification in Strategic Management and Leadership.

An MBA is now the globally recognised qualification for senior personnel and executives within both the private and public sectors.  As the impact of change, the importance of strategy and intensification of competition increases, organisations are demanding managers who can contribute a depth of understanding in the business community as a whole.  The growing economic importance of entrepreneurship has also re-emphasised the need for a clearer understanding of the theory and practice relating to business and management in both new and existing organisations.

The MBA in Management aims to build on our long-established expertise in the area of postgraduate training by offering a one-year modular MBA programme which focuses on developing participants’ academic and managerial skills in areas such as organisational behaviour, marketing strategy, e-business and new venture creation.  An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training to familiarise participants with the latest strategic, managerial and industrial developments in both the public and private sectors.

The course provides a coherent analytical framework for the study of business and enterprise from a management perspective.  The emphasis throughout the programme is on the application of contemporary, financial, managerial and strategic developments that affect real-world decision-making in the global market place.

We recognise that a thorough understanding of recent developments in management, entrepreneurship, strategy, marketing and finance are essential requirements for all those involved in a management role (or those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of these important business and management areas).

CIMAThe programme is accredited by the CIMA (the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) which means students could be entitled to claim exemptions for some of their professional examinations, please see CIMA website.

This will also give you more time to meet any conditions we may potentially attach to an offer.
