In today’s competitive environment, it’s not enough to have academic learning: Employers expect more.
Learning from the collective experience of other students and the world’s elite, who have all made significant achievements in their careers, accelerates the learning process and exposes you to an unprecedented breadth of leadership and business experience.
Learners will re-think business approaches by engaging together online, sharing and interrogating existing practice, and driving change through an online collaborative learning community.
Collaborative Virtual Learning Environment
The student online virtual learning environment is clearly distinguished from traditional online delivery methods, through its achievement of immersion and engagement, the use of collaboration tools, and strong relevance to real business contexts.
Your learning experience is delivered through a leading enterprise collaboration platform. Reflecting a corporate intranet portal, you’ll communicate and collaborate, as well as access resources and support. You’ll engage with learning and assessment tasks in a manner closely aligned to real-world corporate experience.
Ducere and UWTSD both have significant experience of supporting learners at a distance. You will receive a dedicated student experience manager throughout your studies, helping you benefit from a programme of study that is designed to be relevant to your current work.
You will be engaging regularly with other MBA students as well as your tutors, learning with other people in different locations and in different business contexts, giving you an opportunity to experience a range of different perspectives.
Dynamic Insights from Global Leaders, CEO'S and Business Innovators
Aligning formal academic content with learnings shared by the Global Leaders Faculty enhances your learning process and gives you a greater level of applied understanding
Ducere’s Global Leaders Faculty is made up of over 250 of the world’s most successful individuals, from former Presidents and Prime Ministers to CEOs, Business Innovators and Successful Startup Creators. Their insights are available for students so they can relate their academic studies to practical and industry-relevant case studies at every stage of their education journey.
The MBA programme consists of two parts:
Part I consists of six taught modules, delivered over 12 months. These modules will cover a range of relevant business areas, such as, risk identification, assessment and mitigation; threat management and modelling; cybersecurity standards; the cyber mindset; cyber governance; digital stakeholders; capacity building; finance; marketing; and, HRM, covering up-to-date academic and practitioner material.
Part II is a significant applied research project and takes up to 12 months, depending on the pace of the individual student. This piece of work can focus on the student's workplace or any other business issue the student wishes to research in-depth.
Students who complete three 20-credit modules can graduate with an award of PG Certificate (or six modules gains a PG Diploma).
