MA in Business and Management (MBM)

New for 2019, our MA in Business and Management degree (MBM) is a highly flexible, work-based programme that enables you to develop the necessary skills and knowledge required for senior leadership and management roles.

A large component of the programme is based on self-development through activities for an employer, organisation or your own business. You are required to undertake work-based projects to complete a number of modules.

If you are currently in employment, you may be able to complete your work-based projects in your current role, however, if you are not in employment, Pearson Business School will partner you with an organisation to work alongside.

This is a great opportunity to work with a company, acting as a consultant to them whilst gaining invaluable experience. This is designed to add value to both you and your employer through a combination of self-development, mentorship and tuition. 

This postgraduate degree is developed for entrepreneurs, working professionals and students who want to forge their own path in the business world.
