Programme Overview

If you’re looking to develop your skills as an effective manager and potential leader, then the Liverpool MBA is the programme for you. You’ll build a deeper understanding of core business and management disciplines and learn how they link together strategically and operationally. You will also undertake a range of roles in diverse teams.

The core elements of the programme – leadership, strategy, organisations, consultancy, managerial economics, international business, innovation, entrepreneurship, marketing, supply chain management and managing financial resources – are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning.

The elective modules allow specialisation in areas of finance, marketing and supply chain management, or allow you to explore new areas of project design and management challenges in nonprofit sectors. The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making.

The Developing as a Manager and a Leader module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership abilities – all of which will prepare you for success within the modern organisation. Cutting edge research and theory, we believe, has most value when it can be seen working in practice, which is why live case studies and simulations are central to teaching and learning. You’ll also have a range of opportunities to work on real projects for sponsoring organisations through work based projects and the student-led consultancy service.
