In today’s fast moving and complex world of business, successful managers, and entrepreneurs, must have a wide range of management skills and appropriate qualifications.

Organisations expect their team leaders and managers to make effective contributions to operational and strategic discussions and decision making, and to help the organisation achieve its objectives.

Our distance learning MBA Foundation Programme is ideal for those who are seeking a course that gives them knowledge and understanding of all the key areas of management, gives them recognition as a qualified professional manager, and also prepares them for higher studies.

  • Help you gain membership of your professional association or institute
  • Provide evidence that you are ready for a promotion
  • Prepare you for studies at MBA, MA, or MSc level

On successfully completing our Foundation programme, you will be offered direct entry onto an MBA course at one of our partner universities, or you can choose from Masters courses around the world.

Is it an appropriate course for you?

If you are in the early stages of your career, and wish to study management at postgraduate level, and move on later to study at Masters level, this course is ideal for you.

The programme is also very suitable for more experienced managers and specialists, and for entrepreneurs, in all business sectors, who need to obtain a valuable management qualification, and to prepare for study at MBA level.

Will my qualification be internationally recognised?

There are now ten times more managers and professionals studying by distance learning than in the classroom.

Distance learning qualifications are fully recognised in all the major countries, in North & South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Asia, and Australasia.

National and international organisations around the world recognise the MBA Foundation qualification as evidence that you are a knowledgeable and professional manager.

Will Distance Learning be suitable for me?
