MBA distance learning, modular
Full Programme/ Accelerated Programme


The Qualification Offered

This MBA programme is designed specifically for financial managers accountants wishing to develop their broader management skills, and for professionals working in the financial services sectors. The programme is delivered jointly by the world-renowned Manchester Business School and the School of Accounting, Banking and Economics at the University of Wales, Bangor.

Course Format

The programme has proved to be a remarkable success, combining distance learning delivery with the peer group and faculty contact essential in any high quality MBA. The latter is achieved through a six day period of residential workshops held each semester in the UK or at a number of overseas support centres. The workshops deliver one quarter of each course module, are interactive, are NOT lectures or revision classes, and have a practical, case study based approach. The course can be linked to in-house company training at Certificate, Diploma or Degree stages. The distance learning, modular format provides the flexibility necessary to combine a busy professional life with further education.

Non-degree Courses

Individual MBA modules, such as Information Technology Management which focuses on the process of transformation facing the financial services industry, may be taken singly on a non-degree basis.

Course Details

The full MBA Programme incorporates essential MBA core subjects in finance and accounting, marketing, managerial economics, organisational behaviour, and strategic management. A range of option modules enables candidates to choose a programme suitable to their personal career requirements. Following the coursework stage there is an MBA project on a topic selected by the candidate The topic is normally based on a work-related management issue directly relevant to the candidate's employment

Accelerated MBA Programme

The Accelerated MBA Programme recognises that the combination of formally-assessed study and professional experience necessary for membership of certain professional institutes equates to specific MBA core modules. This recognition has led to an exemption-based entry route for appropriately experienced members of prescribed British and overseas accountancy institutes such as the Chartered Accountants, CIMA and ACCA. The Accelerated Programme provides exemption from five MBA modules.
