They’re also drawn by its sheer flexibility; no other programme gives you as much freedom.
You can study the subjects you want, in the order you wish.
You can begin and end whenever you choose.

Our MBA and MSc programmes cover key management disciplines, including people skills, economics, marketing, accounting, finance, strategic planning and project management.
You must pass seven core courses and two electives; there's a three-hour exam for each course.
