Course Overview

If you are interested in career progression, our International MBA is designed to foster resilience, sustainability and organisational trailblazing to prepare you for the new global paradigm where change is the only consistency.

Our flagship ‘International MBA’ focusses on preparing tomorrow’s aspiring entrepreneurs and business leaders to actively engage with, and navigate, fluid, interconnected and (often) disruptive factors converging and colliding within the global market place. IMBA students will learn to read and translate global uncertainties and disruptive factors and quickly adapt these circumstances to their organisation’s competitive advantage. Existing approaches to business management, international case studies, and new business innovations will all be examined and critiqued.

This 15-month full time course is taught at our High Wycombe campus, which is a 30 minute train journey from central London.

What will this course cover?

The themes of business resilience and sustainability - played within a contextual learning backdrop of global unpredictability - are central elements to our flagship postgraduate programme.

From international finance to marketing strategy, and digital leadership to project management, by the end of the programme you will have developed a strategic, integrated and holistic perspective on organisations and management. You will be confident in your leadership capabilities, and be prepared for senior management career advancement.
