The Bradford Distance Learning MBA is aimed at intelligent, highly motivated managers who wish to equip themselves with the essential business and management skills required in the increasingly competitive, diverse and dynamic business environment.
Although studying largely independently, Distance Learning MBA students get all the benefits of being at a leading international business school and gaining a globally recognised qualification. You will also get access to all of our learning, careers and support services as well as our online library and academic expertise.
All our MBA programmes are made up of three stages
Core modules – designed to help you get back in to learning and provide fundamental knowledge of management principles and theory
Elective modules – provide an in-depth understanding of specialist topics that are essential and relevant to the contemporary commercial world. Students choose those that are of most interest or greatest career benefit
Management project – enables you to put the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme to practical use on a relevant management issue
Distance learning students are not required to attend any sessions at Bradford University School of Management. However students can chose to study up to three modules (each running over 3-5 days) at the School of Management or at any one of our partner institutions in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Singapore, Manila and Dubai for no extra cost (other than travel and subsistence costs).
We have the prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) which is the leading international system of quality, assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration run by the European Foundation for Management Development.
We were among the first business schools in the UK to receive portfolio accreditation for all our MBA programmes (including full-time, executive part-time and distance=-learning MBAs) frin AMBA (Association of MBAs).
AACSB - We are workin towards achievement of the AACSB accreditation in 2012 which would give us the Triple Crown of accreditations.
