Program Description

Course Overview

The MBA course delivered at Canterbury Christ Church University will help you gain insights into the latest trends in international business, as well as UK private and public sector organisations.

With the experience of our leading team of University researchers and professional practice tutors, we will ensure the MBA programme maintains a pragmatic focus to enhance your new business career.

The course brings together theory and practice. We endeavour to work closely with regional businesses and there is an emphasis on work-related learning and employability. For your third-semester‘ management project’, you will carry out either a work-related learning project or a policy-based study about a given industry sector.

The MBA course at Canterbury Christ Church University has been designed for recent graduates (with little or no work experience) from all disciplines who want to embark upon a career within the public, private and independent sectors in the UK and abroad. An MBA is a Master’s degree in business and is viewed as a key marketing asset for job hunters and a major developmental achievement for those progressing up the career ladder.
