About

Programme Highlights:

The MBA Master of Business Administration at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is specifically designed for those wishing either to establish or sustain a successful managerial or professional career in business. Those who have already worked for at least two years in a managerial, technical or professional role may also wish to enhance their career prospects through MBA study. This course allows you to take an optional professional placement in semester 3.

We also run the MBA with placement which allows students to undertake a placement as part of their studies. Students apply for paid positions on a competitive basis and secure positions through their own efforts. Some assistance in preparation for applying for placements will be provided, however placements are paid employment and the employer has the final say. 

The work undertaken by the student must be of an adequate standard in an area of work strongly related to the content of the MBA Programme and the appropriateness of any placement will be assessed / approved by a member of the academic team on an individual basis.
