We take ‘Original Thinking Applied’ seriously. That’s why we structure the Manchester MBA around four practical themes, rather than traditional subject areas. This real-world focus ensures we develop reflective leaders who can navigate the most challenging global trends and tensions.

Theme 1: Management in Practice
Examine current business environments using the practice-based Manchester Method. Reflect and engage with the historical, cultural and ethical considerations that should underpin any commercial decision.

Theme 2: Value Creation in Business
Explore how contemporary businesses create value from both an academic and commercial perspective and identify interdependencies between the operation, tactical and strategic areas of an organisation.

Theme 3: Tailoring your journey
Customise your MBA experience with a live business project and our wide range of elective courses, which can be studied at any of our global centres in Dubai, Hong Kong, Manchester, São Paulo, Shanghai and Singapore.

Theme 4: Professional Skills for Business
Identify and develop professional and personal competencies essential to become a successful leader. This reflective, experiential learning will support you as you plan and execute your post-MBA strategy.
