Course Description

The Southampton MBA - full-time, accredited programme at Southampton Management School

Get a clearer view with the Southampton MBA

The 1-year MBA at Southampton Management School is an integrative programme that goes beyond the standard business functions (i.e. Finance, Marketing etc). Instead, students also study a number of modules that integrate all the main business functions and that require them to think about, and respond to, real business scenarios from different management perspectives.

This integrative approach enables students to apply the theories, knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme. More importantly, it gives students a wider management perspective that will prepare them better for leadership roles in the future.

In order to provide our MBA students with the most relevant learning and to enable them to compete in a rapidly changing global environment, the MBA programme also includes a residential week in The Netherlands where students visit a range of different companies and learn about their experiences of trading in a globalised environment. These visits will be complemented by lectures from leading European practitioners and academics, and talks by the European Commission in Brussels.
