About offering

This specialist Master of Business Administration (MBA) major has a curriculum offering students a more detailed understanding and engagement with current and future leadership challenges. Students are constantly required to analyse and reframe leadership concepts alongside their own leadership styles in order to gain an understanding of organisations and develop their practical skills.
