Business Administration with Advanced Practice

Ulster University - Belfast

Business Administration with Advanced Practice

An MBA is an internationally recognised passport to a successful management career. You will consider and apply business theory to the world of work, deepening and widening your understanding of organisations and the environment in which they operate.

Our MBA is designed to introduce you to the essential areas of business and management. The full-time MBA is a broad, general management qualification covering finance, marketing, economics, strategy, leadership, organisational behaviour, and operations management.

You will be joining a diverse international student body and as such, you will experience different cultures and ideas, and develop an international network of like-minded individuals.

Students have used the MBA to change direction, build on their primary degree, or to enhance their skillset before embarking on their chosen profession.

Work placement / study abroad
There is no formal work placement available as part of this course, however your Business Project may involve working with an organisation on a live business issue.

We also offer a full-time MBA with Advanced Practice which allows you to gain real-world experience as part of the course by offering you the opportunity to complete either an Internship or Applied Consulting Project working on real-world issues faced by industry. Please note, this is a separate programme to the full-time MBA.
