Alumni Masters Program
1st September 2020
A unique opportunity offered to Mountbatten Alumni by The University of Chester and Mountbatten Online
The Mountbatten Academic Team have developed an opportunity to enable our alumni to virtually study, or top up a current award, for an MA in Entrepreneurial Management (WBIS) or an MBA (WBIS) awarded the University of Chester, UK. The MBA and MA will introduce you to a new business reality, one which searches for competitive advantage in an increasingly complex global environment. The programmes are divided into diverse and relevant modules, including entrepreneurial management, business strategy and planning, digital business and new technology and practical marketing communications. Work-Based Projects are integrated into both programmes and will assist you to develop your analytical, critical thinking and decision-making skills. These work-based projects will not only enable you to utilise your current workplace, and the opportunities it provides, as a learning laboratory, but also be of value to you and your existing, or potential, employers.
- The aims of the programme starting in October 2020 and March 2021 is to:
- Promote personal and professional development and improve performance within the workplace.
- Deliver coherent, meaningful, programmes of study which give learners the opportunity to achieve their desired outcomes in relation to their, and their employer’s, needs.
- Facilitate reflective practice and develop knowledge and understanding of its underpinning theory in a work-based context.
- Develop the skills, knowledge and capabilities proper to the field(s) of study related to the work-based environment.
