The MBS in Corporate Administration concentrates on equipping students with an understanding of the competitive, economic and regulatory environment in which organisations operate. This approach is unique both in terms of the breadth of the subject coverage and the depth of the subject expertise. A key feature of the MBS Corporate Administration programme is that it sets the theories into a wider practical perspective, state of the art technology and lecturing staff who are experienced and respected practitioners.

Programme goals
The MBS in Corporate Administration highlights the importance of adopting best practice in management and provides a platform for students to gain a unique insight into 'real' organisational problems or managerial challenges.

Consequently graduates are highly sought after and are equipped to succeed and contribute in a substantial manner in their chosen workplace.
