The Global University – University of Leicester School of Management

By StudyLink

Distance learning has opened up management courses to a range of students who don’t fit the usual profile, but none so surprising as the nun from a closed monastery in Cyprus who enrolled with the University of Leicester.
Quite what the mechanics of branding, managing risk or gaining competitive advantage have to do with a life of quiet devotion in a small female community is hard to imagine but study she did, with the help of video conferencing as visitors were not allowed through the gates.
Leicester’s school of management has devoted significant resources into building up its distance learning programmes since it was set up as a separate department in 2002 and now has 6,000 studying remotely – even more than the Open University, which has nearly 4,000.
Studying with the University of Leicester School of Management has clear and distinct career benefits. We have tailored our degrees so they can be studied either by distance learning or full-time on campus, so you have the choice about how to fit studying into your life and around your career.
Our Business and Management courses have been developed with the professional in mind and offer many opportunities for career enhancement.
Both our full-time and distance learning MBA have gained AMBA accreditation – testifying to the quality of our Master of Business Administration degree. This hallmark of quality extends to our other postgraduate programmes in business, management and finance.
Flexible and fully supported distance learning is a particular strength at Leicester – we have vast experience of this delivery over many years, allowing you can get ahead without taking a career break and fitting your MBA into your lifestyle.
“I thought very hard about returning to study and it was very important to me to find the right University. Leicester totally fit the bill. My advice to others would
be – Go for it!”
