The Master of Business Administration programme is awarded by University of Chichester, UK.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) (top-up) programme is offered to learners who already possess the Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership qualification.

An MBA is a passport to a successful career. It demonstrates the breadth and depth of your functional competence, strategic knowledge, and problem-solving ability. The MBA Admission programme is structured to provide the opportunity for the student to examine an area of particular interest within an appropriate organizational context. It is designed to make a major contribution to your professional and intellectual development, through enabling you to demonstrate your capacity for sustained independent thought, learning, and critical reflection. We want students on our course to have the support they need to make the most of their investment in their own future. You need to have strong professional stories to share, but top-tier business schools are looking for much more than just examples of professional excellence. Today’s managers need to demonstrate that they can handle a multitude of tasks, situations, and personalities—both inside and outside the workplace. To the best of your ability, strive to offer a mix of accomplishments from the professional, community, and personal fields. MBA core courses introduce students to business topics, such as accounting, operations management, finance, human resources, and management information systems. Additional courses often include organizational management, macroeconomics, marketing management, and computer information systems.

In general, MBA Admission programs are structured around core courses (an essentially standard curriculum) and elective courses that (may) allow for a subject specialty or concentration. Thus, in the program’s first year (or part), students acquire both a working knowledge of management functions and the analytical skills required for these, while in the second year (part), students pursue elective courses, which may count towards a specialization. (Topics in business ethics may be included at the generalist or specialist level.) After the first year, many full-time students seek internships from top MBA Colleges. The degree culminates with coursework in business strategy, the program capstone. A dissertation or major project is usually a degree requirement after the completion of coursework.

MBA Colleges may also offer additional courses and electives based on students’ concentrations. Business and economic forecasting, public administration, management information systems, marketing, hospitality management, and international business are some examples of possible MBA concentrations.

The University of Chichester has a very high reputation and is one of the highly valued MBA Colleges in the UK and world. The course provides a practical-based, hands-on experience, helping to nurture transferable and vocational skills. The MBA (top-up) programme allows you to achieve an MBA qualification in up to six months, so it is a fast track to new opportunities and enhanced career prospects.
