Today’s economic conditions, characterised by increased price volatility and scarcity on the energy and resources fronts, require a change in perspective. There is a belief that an innovative approach, which integrates systems thinking and looks beyond the linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model, is the answer that a forward-looking School of Management should strive to provide.
As a result, the Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy Distance Learning MBA is designed to give a focussed specialisation in the topic of Circular Economy within the context of our established MBA general management programme. This MBA seeks to prepare the next generation of leaders with first-hand knowledge on the circular economy, in concert with learning and putting into practice contemporary business leadership and management knowledge.
Bradford University School of Management allows students to vary the speed of their progression through the programme to suit their own individual needs. As such, you can choose to take just one module in a quarter or defer your studies altogether, for a short period of time. As a general guide the programme can be completed in 2-6 years.
Distance learning students usually study 2 modules every 3 months. Each module is split into 9 units (8 learning units and 1 revision unit). Students are expected to work through 1 unit per module per week. This format ensures that students have a number of weeks at the end of the module for examination revision (if the module is assessed by an exam) assignment work and general recuperation.
Through completing 2 modules every 3 months, by the end of year 1, students will have studied 8 modules. In year 2, progressing at the same rate, students take the remaining 4 compulsory modules and 2 elective modules. The completion of these remaining modules takes 9 months. In the final 3 months students start (and can complete) the management project. Many students see the management project as a key part of the MBA experience, putting the skills they have learnt into practice. Ongoing support is provided when tackling the management project with each student being allocated an experienced academic supervisor.
