The MBA programme focuses on developing your academic and managerial skills. An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training in the latest strategic managerial and organisational developments in both the public and private sectors.

The programme includes coverage of human resource management and organisational behaviour. The study of financial analysis and decision making emphasises the uses of financial and accounting data to inform and improve strategic decisions and operations. The coverage of business economics emphasises the external context, as well as the economic foundations, for business decision-making across a range of functional areas.
