The Full-time Bradford MBA in Italy is run in partnership with the University of Perugia. It is based in Spoleto, about 40 km from Perugia in the Umbrian region of Italy at The Rocca Albornaziana.
It is taught in English and delivered full-time over 12 months by a combination of senior academics from both universities. Teaching is in small groups, which gives the programme a tailored, intimate feel. Opportunities to take modules in Bradford or at one of our partner institutions in France or Spain are available and encouraged.
Bradford-Perugia MBA students benefit from a guaranteed three month internship, managed by the University of Perugia in conjunction with local Italian enterprises, at the end of the programme. They also have access to support, resources and services offered by both universities throughout their studies. This includes help with getting your visa.
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
Bradford-Perugia MBA students are taught an additional two core modules and can take advantage of the engineering and operations specialist electives delivered by University of Perugia academics. Alternatively, a range of other, specialist or more generalist MBA electives can be studied in Bradford or at one of our partner institutions in France or Spain.
Modules are delivered in weekly blocks using a variety of learning and teaching approaches, including lectures, case analysis, group work, individual and group problem solving research. Assessment is by a combination of written examinations, assignments, group projects and presentations.
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) from AMBA (Association of MBAs).
AACSB - we are working towards achievement of the AACSB accreditation in 2012 which would give us the Triple Crown of accreditations.
