In our globalising economy, a worldwide recognised credential, such as the MBA, can open doors to aspiring business professionals. It covers a range of essential business techniques and disciplines, from marketing and strategy to finance.
This learning has to be put into practice, so many MBAs address leadership: the quality that enables managers to work well in context with the people around them. Being able to ‘talk the language’ of the many professional disciplines is a start: being able to engage with the people who will make things happen for you is critical to career development.
At Leeds Metropolitan University (soon to become Leeds Beckett University on 22 September 2014), we believe MBAs should be globally accessible to all, and not just to those who can afford to take time out from their career. Our Executive MBA helps students achieve this balance by providing the UK’s first 100% distance learning MBA, giving business professionals the opportunity to become strategic management leaders whilst remaining in post, wherever they live and work in the world.
Our Executive MBA is delivered using innovative online learning methods supported by Pearson Learning Studio, a virtual learning environment that makes use of Web 2.0 technologies including social media learning. This allows tutors to connect to students from across the world asynchronously, providing flexibility and freedom to study whilst maintaining rigorous academic contact. The course content is designed with flexibility in mind, allowing students 24/7 access to their course so they can study in their own time and at their own pace for 10-12 hours per week. Students have access to high quality pre-recorded lectures, specifically directed reading made easily accessible via an e-text platform, and focused activities that relate directly to their work experience and allow peer-to-peer and student-tutor interaction.
As well as flexible learning, Leeds Metropolitan University’s online MBA offers a range of flexible payment options for students and employers and costs just £6,800 payable over 3 years.
Leeds Metropolitan University also offers leading accreditation for their online masters as the Executive MBA has been developed in consultation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), which has accredited three additional awards. So in addition to your MBA, and subject to confirmation of achievement by the CMI, you have the opportunity to obtain:
These extra qualifications will improve your prospects and give you a head start in the employment market.
Having delivered successful MBA courses for over 22 years and with our world-leading virtual learning environment allowing you the flexibility to study when it suits you, you can be sure to achieve your highest ambitions.
