The Executive MBA is designed as a general management qualification for ambitious individuals with considerable work experience who are looking to further develop their business and strategic leadership skills. The overarching goal of the course is to produce graduates who can operate a business function, unit or organisation by building students' capabilities in technical, professional and interpersonal skills.

The Executive MBA curriculum is strongly experientially oriented and provides students with decision-making experiences that emulate the real world of business. The requirements of professional bodies; recent research and scholarship data on successful graduates; information from employers and advisory committees; and industry groups have informed the attributes and learning goals. The course is structured in such a way that students can choose to progress through the degree in a group. The cohort model is designed to foster a sense of union, facilitate networking and encourage cooperative relationships with a focus on leadership and group dynamics.

Course aims

The aim of the Executive MBA degree is to develop students' business acumen through an enhanced capacity for integrity, judgment and intuition. Executive MBA students develop advanced competency in a number of key disciplines including accounting, economics, finance, marketing and strategic management. The learning goals of the degree are designed to meet the needs of today's rapidly changing enterprises including areas such as electronic business; finance; banking; corporate accounting; marketing; operations management; employment relations; management in the public, private and international spheres; information technology; engineering; and event, tourism, sport, arts and leisure management. The focus is on developing specific skills including the ability to integrate accounting, finance, marketing and management skills for progressive solutions and sound management decisions; capacity for analysing and synthesising complex information and knowledge for tactical and strategic business decisions; effective leadership and teamwork skills; and designing innovative business models and strategies that adhere to the principles of responsible corporate governance and social responsibility.

To travel through a course in a cohort model has been excellent – these amazing people will remain friends and confidantes for many years.
