Specialist MBAs

Getting to the top in your career is tough.

It takes skill, determination and, of course, specialist knowledge.
Our specialist MBAs give you just that depth of understanding.

This programme encompasses the same seven core courses of the standard MBA. But, instead of the two elective courses, you take four specialist courses in strategic planning

Designed for individuals who are, or intend to become, senior managers holding substantive positions  in large public or private sector organisations.
