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.
