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 your specialist subject.
We offer five specialist MBAs; Finance, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Strategic Planning and Oil and Gas Management.
Our specialist MBAs are typically studied by distance learning, however, you have the option to study the seven course courses on our campuses, and complete the specialism by studying the four specialist electives by distance learning.
