Our unique World First MBA gives you the edge in today's challenging business environment. It's a pioneering programme designed to maximise your ability to manage change and promote innovation in a business context. It can be studied full-time, or part-time around your work commitments.
The skills, hands-on experience and relationships you'll nurture through the course will allow you to excel, adding value to companies dealing with the recession and developing your global employability.
Our MBA programme is built around four key themes vital to economic growth, which also represent the fundamental skills demanded by great business leaders: Creative Strategic Thinking & Innovation, Globalisation, Change Management and Adding Value.
Through these themes we'll explore creativity within an international business context, key leadership theories and strategies, complex global problems faced by today's businesses and micro and macroeconomics. Alongside the theory, hands-on experiential learning will help put your acquired knowledge in context so you can see just how it hones effective business leadership skills.
You'll also identify and develop your leadership skills; with a particular emphasis on inter-cultural communications and policies.
From the start of your MBA, we'll introduce you to global employability through our personal career management resource, allowing you to network with global companies and other MBA candidates, develop your employability skills online and successfully manage and build your career as a sought-after creative leader.
Available as a full-time course or in executive, part-time mode, the MBA is designed to work around you. Most of our students continue to work while taking the course, finding the rigorous course content informs their business practice and vice versa.
How is the course taught
The full-time course is based on campus at Penryn. The executive mode course is delivered online and supplemented by four residential teaching weekends. Both modes include a one-week international visit and networking dinners.
Our MBA's team of staff, associate staff and visiting lecturers are pooled from some of the world's leading business schools and universities, including University of Cambridge; George Washington University, Washington DC; Queen's University, Belfast; and Cass Business School, London.
You can elect to take the MBA either as a full-time, one-year course, or in executive mode, studying over 24 months while you work.
The programme is also available in short units, our Mini MBA, allowing you to study for your MBA degree one stage at time.
The course is delivered through seven core modules, each exploring the four core themes of the MBA. These modules include considering the business of creativity and developing added value for customers, leadership intelligence, achieving results, managing change, influencing sustainability, and the financial analysis, resource allocation and understanding of economics required to achieve results. In our Innovation Lab module we'll identify issues faced by global businesses and use creativity and strategic thinking to resolve them, thus boosting their competitive advantage. Our International Residential module will give you real-life experience of business in another country, offering a global perspective and letting you put your theoretical knowledge into practice.
Interview and selection process
Once you have submitted your application, a member of the MBA team will contact you and invite you to interview. Interviews will be held in person in the AIR building on our Penryn Campus or online, depending on circumstances.
