The Roehampton MBA focuses on responsible leadership for sustaining competitive advantage and managing projects in a global context. It is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the main functional areas of business management such as strategy, marketing, finance and organisational change. The Roehampton MBA puts emphasis on the analysis of global organisations' best practices and strategies and it provides the opportunity to pursue a consultancy project with either a multinational corporation or a leading SME in London.
This programme has been designed with input from successful London-based entrepreneurs and will equip you with an understanding of the needs of global business. This MBA will also prepare you for the challenges of senior management within an international business environment.
You will be offered the opportunity to join an international management field trip to a European country, included in the programme’s fees, where you will visit companies and will have the opportunity to reflect on current management issues and strategic solutions. The international management field trip will offer you an invaluable opportunity to practise teamwork and to contextualize and apply your international business management knowledge to a number of international companies and cultural contexts.
The Roehampton MBA is an intensive management programme that will enhance your career in international business and related specialist areas and ensure your ‘global career readiness’. The programme will be directly relevant to your professional background and expertise, as learning is related to, and informed by, your own work experience. The programme is delivered by academics and practitioners that are leading experts in their field and is characterised by quality teaching that is research-informed.

A global perspective, capitalising on your prior work experience, reflected in the programme content and assessment strategy.

Learning and teaching focused on your career-readiness and addressing contemporary challenges in 21st-century global businesses.
A blended approach to teaching and learning that is technology-enabled through the use of Moodle.
On successful completion of your MBA you will have the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead and manage global business operations; to absorb complex information; to make difficult strategic decisions and communicate them effectively, and to lead and manage cross-cultural project teams.
As a graduate, you will receive a dual award Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Why a Global Leadership Programme?
Want to experience life as a Management Consultant?

As part of your Global Leadership Programme, you will receive guidance from professional staff from the Careers Service on how to enhance your career path.

If your first degree is not in business and management, you will be offered the opportunity to complete an on-line pre-induction, which is entirely voluntary and non-credit bearing. It is not assessed and it is not a pre-condition for enrolment. It will, however, provide you with a level of understanding of strategy, management, marketing and international business. This programme is delivered as a self-directed study and available once your enrolment has been completed.
The programme will consist of guided readings that you can complete at your own pace at home. You are strongly encouraged to arrive well prepared and to have read through at least some of readings and reflection tasks provided by week 3 of your first semester.
The Pre-Induction website will guide you, once you are enrolled, through the relevant readings and tasks in more detail. It will advance your ability to analyse data and information using basic analytical and managerial techniques and toolkits.
