Fulltime MBA: There are three key stages to the full-time MBA: 1. The introductory module is a four-week compulsory introduction to the MBA. It is a period when you can get to know your fellow students and get a feel for the School and the area before studies start in earnest. 2. The diploma stage is where you cover the wide range of topics you would expect to study at a leading international business school. 3. The MBA stage of the programme, the final nine months, is all about choice and includes the chance to specialise in certain areas, plus live project work, international exchange, internships and study courses.
