MBA at Essex Business School
Essex Business School’s (EBS) new full-time MBA course will welcome its first cohort of students in September.
The Essex MBA has been designed for a new breed of business leader who needs to be innovative, inquisitive, creative and ethical, and challenges the traditional approaches to business education by focusing on the needs of both business and society.
EBS Director, Professor Michael Sherer, explained: ‘In order to survive and prosper in today’s increasingly complex world, businesses must both add economic value and recognise the social, ethical and environmental implications of their strategies and practices. This distinctive approach sets the Essex MBA programme apart from those offered at other business schools.’
The one-year full-time course is aimed at graduates who possess at least three years’ managerial experience. However, applications will also be considered from other students provided that they have a minimum of five years’ relevant managerial experience.
Teaching will take place in a dedicated MBA suite on campus which will promote group work and reflective learning. In order to maintain a high-quality student experience, the MBA cohort size will initially be capped at 25 students. In future years additional capacity will be added so that multiple cohorts can run simultaneously.
The MBA programme will be delivered by full-time EBS staff together with experienced practitioners from industry, finance and the public sector. Teaching on the MBA will be informed by the latest research and the curriculum will have a strong international flavour, which will be very attractive to graduates from both home and abroad.
At the core of the curriculum are two innovative modules: Sustainable Business Strategies; and Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which provide an integrated and holistic approach to the study of business.
