There are three main elements to the Keele MBA: core modules, elective modules and a research dissertation. The core modules provide a comprehensive foundation in management principles and give an insight into the theory, practice and techniques in the main management disciplines. Elective modules provide the student with the opportunity to specialize in certain areas of interest. There is also a research methods module which assists students in the preparation for research and the written dissertation.
