Course Overview

The ARU MBA is designed for students who have gained a considerable degree of subject knowledge and proficiency from their undergraduate studies, experience of the workplace, or both. Our approach to study is essentially one of critique and evaluation, using the results of current and recent research and case studies to analyse, evaluate and appraise established methods, practices or techniques.

Teaching input is provided via a wide range of approaches, including lectures, seminars, video and case studies. Particular emphasis is placed on team teaching and the setting of work-based tasks at strategic level.

Learning strategies include syndicate work, group presentations, working with local business organisations and self-managed learning.
