Course Overview

The Leicester MBA provides students with the skills necessary to become an adept manager in today’s global business environment. The course will equip you with a thorough understanding of current and emerging theories, techniques, and practices of business management.

You will develop the skills to think creatively and strategically about a wide range of business issues alongside an awareness of cultural sensitivity and the ability to work in a cross-cultural, multinational, team-based environment.

The course will allow you to integrate and apply the knowledge, approaches and methods that you have learnt to a variety of case studies and your own managerial and work experiences.

It allows you to concentrate on general management or to tailor the course to suit your individual career needs. Areas of specialism include marketing, finance and employee relations.

Learning and Assessment

Each module will normally be delivered through a weekly three-hour lecture and two-hour seminar. You will be expected to undertake private study and tutorial group work in addition to your attendance at the lectures, and the expectation is that you will devote at least an additional five hours study time per week to each of the modules.Tutorial groups enable students to work together, to develop interpersonal skills, to share experiences and support each other. By working in such a group, students are encouraged to network, collaborate and to pool a diversity of skills and experiences.

Previous MBA students have found these groups to be invaluable and all students are required to participate fully.Leicester MBA students studying on campus also benefit from having a personal tutor, who will be able to give you advice during your programme on both academic and pastoral issues.


Each model has either one or two assessment elements. These may be a combination of examinations, assignments and collaborative projects. Your dissertation will be assessed by a final 15,000 word research project.
