Why study for an MBA at Salford? Being able to assess a number of information sources and make judgement on the most appropriate course of action for your organisation is just one of the key skills that a Salford MBA graduate will develop.

To be relevant to the business world the Salford MBA programme itself is constantly reviewed and aligned to the needs of organisations. The latest Salford MBA course revisions ready for September 2016 intake make our Salford MBA programme up to date by focusing on these factors:

All Salford MBA modules are now specific to MBA students so that these are no longer shared with MSc students on other programmes. This change increases time when MBA students can learn from one another and gives each intake a distinct group identity and forges your contacts beyond the course timelines and helps for you establish long term business networks.

All modules are core except for the pathways in Digital Business, Sports Business and Executive Education Leadership. The assessment process comprises assessment portfolios without any exams. The teaching is made even more industry linked by all modules including company visits, monthly guests talks followed by individual personal development review sessions with MBA director and most interesting is the International trip which shows an insight into an international market.


What did Salford MBA students do in May 2014?

I am an MBA student at the University of Salford.  I chose Salford University as I felt that the rich and extensive programme they offer would be the most beneficial and useful for my career progression.

Part of the Salford MBA course is a customary trip abroad to visit different business’ and business schools. This year was no exception and we were lucky to have a choice of 3 destinations:  Brazil, Hong Kong and Almeria in Spain.

Some of us chose Brazil (10 students) but myself and seven other students opted for Hong Kong.

With it’s thriving economy and being the world’s business Hub – Hong Kong (HK) was certainly the best option in my opinion! Read more…..

Salford MBA International Trip to Brazil

In May of this year, the Salford MBA students were given the opportunity to take part in an MBA International Trip. The choices provided were Almeria in Spain, Hong Kong or Brazil. The latter destination was most appealing to me, not just because of the impending World Cup, but because as an emerging market there are great business opportunities.

With that said, I eagerly submitted my choice and hoped for the best!

Thankfully, I was successful and on Sunday 11th May at 6:05am, in the early hours of the morning, my MBA cohort eagerly boarded a plane at Manchester Airport and left for Brazil.

After many hours in the air, we finally touched down in Sao Paulo at 17:10pm. Excited, we all disembarked the plane before quickly finding ourselves stuck in a two hour queue at immigration (Painful is the only word to describe it!). However, this was not enough to dampen our spirits and once out of the airport, we climbed aboard our coach and set sail for the hotel.

So, the big question is, what did we get up to whilst on our visit?
