Stage 3A AND 3B
Students will receive individual supervision and supporting lectures and seminars.
3A - The MBA programme requires the student to have a minimum of two years management experience. Those who have accumulated an appropriate set of management competencies, as assessed by the submission of a Management Competency Report, may choose to write an MBA instead of an MSc dissertation and thus complete their MBA in approximately 12 months full-time or two years part-time.
3B Students without the required management experience can complete their MSc dissertation exiting with an MSc in International Business. Refer to Stage 4 on how students replace their MSc with an MBA qualification.
MBA Top Up
Those graduates with no prior management experience, who have completed their MSc, may subsequently, normally within a two year period, submit, with mentor supervision, two reports based on experiential learning in the workplace. The successful completion of these reports enables them to replace their MSc qualification with an MBA.
The students will have the opportunity of experiencing academic life, business life and student life in each of these three major European cities. Based on APL exemptions granted (30 ECTS Credits) from their studies in Berlin and Paris, the students complete the remaining ECTS credits at GCD and will complete their dissertation under the supervision of GCD supervisors in the normal way. The total experience of having studied in three major European cities, having experienced at first hand the cultural diversity, business and social of these three cities will undoubtedly add to their broader educational experience in obtaining their MBA/MSc in International Business. Over the next few years, other cities may be added to this initial list of locations.
