We hope that centres and learners take the opportunity to learn a great deal from these programmes that will provide relevant new skills and qualities. It is envisaged that these programmes will encourage both academic and professional development so that you learners move forward to realise not just their own potential but also that of organisations across a broad range of sectors.

Critically, we take a strategic perspective on business and management that helps you develop the skills to contribute to major business decisions organisations have to make about their future. This MBA is not just an academic course. Tutors will bring into the classroom practical real-life business problems for you to work on and solve, thus enhancing your understanding of how a business works.

Course Content

Here you will undertake a major project that focuses on your understanding and execution of entrepreneurial management in an area of specific interest to your or your organisation, such as:

  • An applied or engaged research project
  • An enterprise consultancy project
  • Taking a new business proposition through to proof of concept

This is a 15,000 words dissertation.

Study Method

The Master of Business Administration degree is studied 100% online through Anglia Ruskin University. You’ll study through Canvas, world-class online Learning Management System (LMS), which can be accessed from your phone, pc or tablet at home or on the move. Canvas provides instant access to study materials, forums, and support from tutors and classmates, as well as enabling easy submission of your assignments.

Students will have the option of choosing either the 4 months (one trimester) option, or the 9 months (two trimesters) option for both Block Teaching (Blended) and Distance Learning (Online).

Students that have initially applied for one-term (full time) option, may request as a maximum extension of 2 weeks (under exceptional circumstances) to submit their dissertation. However, if they require a longer extension (under mitigating grounds), they will be able to submit their work in the upcoming term, under the “part time” route. Therefore, students that require an extension of more than 2 weeks, will automatically be transferred to part-time route.

On successful completion of your studies you’ll be invited to attend a graduation ceremony on campus. If attending the ceremony in person is not possible then we’ll arrange to have your certificate sent to you.
