About the course

The MBA programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Managers

The MBA at the University of Westminster offers a generic management programme which will provide you with a broadly based introduction to other management subject areas and introduce the theory and practice of management and management skills. In stage one you are introduced to the core competencies that a modern manager needs in terms of financial resources, human resources, products and services, economics and your own personal development. In stage two this core understanding is developed by a critical examination of the environment in which you have to manage and the strategies you need to adopt.

Some specialisation is allowed with the choice of a core option from Financial Strategy, Human Resource Strategy for Change Management, Strategic Marketing Management and Strategic Uses of Information Systems. A second elective is chosen either from that list or from the many other Masters programmes offered by the University. This extensive list covers such subjects as Business Ethics, Computer Modelling, Foresight & Futures Studies, Managerial Challenges of E-Commerce and Women in Management. The MBA is completed by a project, which consolidates and demonstrates the learning introduced throughout the programme. The programme attracts people who are self - starters; ready to take responsibility for their own learning, who are influencers in their organisation.

Students are attracted from a wide variety of professional and organisational backgrounds, ranging through commercial, governmental and not for profit and provide a rich mixture for the networks that inevitably form amongst those who successfully pass the programme.
