Programme Overview

The main aim of the International MBA full time programme is to enable successful students to perform effectively at middle management level and aspire to senior management positions, by using enhanced practical knowledge and reasoning ability based on the concepts and theoretical frameworks. The International MBA will also appeal to candidates whose ambition relates around developing or managing a small business or a family business.

The Bucks International MBA has been developed to address business leadership in an uncertain world of continuous disruption. It will provide a strategic and global view with recurring themes such as problem solving, creative thinking and developing empathy all within an international context. In addition, it addresses issues that many organisations face in the present climate: operating in a global setting, ensuring business resilience and sustainability.

The importance of these contextual issues is recognised by the title of the programme and the recurring themes.

The learning processes are designed to meet students’ many preferences and opportunities: for those students who wish to be able to balance continued study with continued work or career, this Flexible and Distributed Learning version will meet their needs. In particular, this will satisfy the needs of a number of international students whose circumstances (e.g. visa, finances) may prevent them from prolonged periods in the UK for study.

The option of selecting the precise nature of the self-managed learning element (dissertation, consultancy project or negotiated work-based learning project) will enable students to influence not only the content of their studies but also the process and outcomes.
