EXECUTIVE MBA IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

EDUCATIONAL AIM

The MBA is a career development generalist Program for those who have significant post-graduation and relevant work experience on which the learning process should build.

The main emphasis of the Program is on leadership through strategic management. While the academic level is masters, there is a strong practical and professional orientation to the curriculum. As an MBA graduate you should be able to ground your new knowledge within the base of your professional experience. You will be able to reflect on and learn from that prior experience and thus be able to integrate new knowledge with past experience and apply it to new situations.

You will be able to challenge preconceptions and to remove subject and functional boundaries so as to handle complex situations holistically. You should also have particular strengths in analysing, synthesising and solving complex, unstructured business problems.

In addition to being able to communicate your findings, you should have developed the skills to implement agreed solutions effectively and efficiently. You should therefore have strongly developed interpersonal skills and be able to interact effectively with a range of specialists.

MODULES

The emphasis for your learning is directly rooted in management practice. The ‘master’ in the degree title signifies your ‘mastery’ of the art and science of management.

To achieve this level of capability the MBA Program concentrates on strategic analysis, interdisciplinary skills, intellectual stimulation and independent judgement and covers core themes such as: critical engagement; embedding theory in practice and global impact awareness.

Core disciplines that you’ll study include human resource management, organisational behaviour, accounting and finance, marketing and operations.

In total, 75 per cent of the Program consists of compulsory elements with 25 per cent comprising elective modules. This enables you to select the curriculum to suit your needs. MBA modules are challenging, but will always direct you towards improving your management capabilities.

  • Teaching, learning and assessment methods

You learn through two inter-related methods. First, using a range of specially-written study materials, case studies, original texts, study guides and assignments and through a range of multi-media material and activities. Secondly, your learning is supported through an instructor.

  • Assessments

-Assignments may be formative (for example at the beginning of a module to enable you to develop your confidence), but usually they are summative, i.e. they count towards your module result. Modules may also include computer-marked assignments or examination papers.

-Formative assessment in the form of informal self-assessed questions allow you progressively to assess your own progress and understanding.

  • Examinations

Most modules also include written examination but may involve an end-of-module assessment which could include an investigation-based report. Key skills will also be assessed in each end-of-module examination.

You are expected to have work experience in management. As such, you should already have gained some of these skills. The Program will however allow you to demonstrate and develop them further.
