Programme Overview

The MBA programme: 

  • Helps students to build their strategic leadership capabilities and the ability to make and communicate connections across complex ideas.
  • Exposes students to the key dilemmas facing organisations in advancing technological development and economic growth, while balancing issues of sustainability, social responsibility and stakeholder management.
  • Our MBA students develop creativity and critical thinking skills, as well as self-awareness, emotional/social intelligence and interpersonal skills.    

The Liverpool MBA is designed to extend your existing expertise and build strategic leadership capabilities. You’ll build a deeper understanding of core business and management disciplines, and learn how they link together strategically and operationally.

Through core and elective modules, the programme will expose you to core management and leadership challenges, including:

  • Designing and implementing strategy
  • Using the power of data analysis to anticipate, rather than follow
  • Building and investing in teams and allocating organisational resources
  • Innovating in processes, platforms and culture
  • Navigating the politics of power
  • Leading with presence and authenticity

We focus on enhancing your understanding of the interplay of organisation dynamics—people, power, politics and systems—and on gaining new analytical skills to identify, dissect and solve complex business problems. We also focus on you as a leader and the development of your personal capabilities to lead and drive change.
