    The Course

    By adopting a flexible structure, Brunel can offer you a mult-modal programme with the option of changing from one mode to another if your job demands or personal circumstances alter. Course fees for all three modes are the same and there is no charge if you transfer from one mode to another.

    The course combines generic management studies with a chosen speciality, drawing on the University=s broad spectrum of expertise, and comprises three parts:

  • A core section on Foundations of Business and Management, taken by all students
  • A choice of a specialist pathway where you have the opportunity to study a particular discipline in depth. Currently options available are AeCommerce@, "Information Management", "Managing for the Future", or "Strategic Accounting and Finance".
  • A business research project related to the chosen option, conducted within an organisation and involving practical research skills .

    Full-Time MBA

    Designed for those who wish to take a short break from the workplace to concentrate on their studies and to re-evaluate their career path, this is an intensive one-year modular programme which is taught over two semesters, September-June, followed by a summer project which brings all the elements of the course together.

    Part-Time MBA

    The part-time programme is designed to be completed in two years. It is for managers who wish to continue in employment and put their new found knowledge to immediate and practical use. It is an intensive, highly interactive and participative, modular programme and attendance is required at the University on one day a week.

    Distance Learning MBA

    The distance learning programme is an immensely flexible course, designed for those who are unable to attend the University on a regular basis for the part-time programme or who do not wish to take a career break. There are two start dates per year (February and September) and deferral from one intake to the next is a simple matter. The course must be completed in five years, but may be completed in two.

    History and Heritage

    A University since 1966, Brunel is named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of the most famous Victorian engineers and a central figure during the Industrial Revolution. Through its commitment to excellence Brunel has grown steadily in both size and reputation, and is now recognised as a major force in higher education. It has four campuses - at Uxbridge, Runnymede, Twickenham and Osterley. The Brunel MBA is based at the main Uxbridge campus on the western edge of London, within easy reach of London Underground links, providing access to the centre of London, Heathrow airport and the UK motorway network.

    The Graduate Business School, responsible for The Brunel MBA, is part of the School of of Business and Management . As well as the MBA, the School of Business and Management Studies offers a range of undergraduate single and joint Honours degrees, including the unique distance-learning BSc in Business Administration, a variety of Certificate, Diploma and Professional Development courses, and Masters and Doctoral programmes on a part- or full-time basis for graduates wishing to specialise in particular management areas.

    The Brunel MBA aims to produce well-informed, critical thinkers orientated towards the application of learning in the workplace, who know how to keep themselves up-to-date and are open to new conceptual and technological developments. The course will give you the practical skills you require to allow you to deal with a wide range of management issues in industry and commerce, and the theoretical basis necessary for you to continue to learn as well as to function effectively as a manager. It will also enable you to deal creatively with business decisions in an increasingly turbulent and unpredictable environment.
