Program description

Master of Business Administration (MBA) - Online Postgraduate Degree Programme for Managers

Get your Master of Business Adminstration Online with this Accredited Online MBA Programme

The overall aim of the Online MBA programme is to provide you with a comprehensive education and postgraduate qualification in all aspects of management. Its structure gives you the flexibility to influence your own learning outcomes through your choice of elective modules. You will develop a thorough understanding of current theories and issues regarding the management of people, resources, change and organisations – and the practical skills to apply it.

Organisations are demanding leaders who thrive in a complex, cross-functional, and globally diverse environment. This Online MBA programme delivers graduates as leaders who understand themselves, and their organisation, in the context of a highly competitive and rapidly changing business climate.

Developing leadership and personal impact skills are key features of the programme as students not only learn theories of leadership but also learn how to enhance their own practice. Additionally students acquire the tools to generate creative local and global strategies, evaluate them rigorously, and implement them effectively.

The design of this MBA programme follows that of a ‘developmental’ model for the student. Throughout the first four modules, this ‘developmental’ model will enable students to develop an enhanced sense of themselves as a manager and as a leader, a deeper awareness of the cross-functional nature of organisations, and an appreciation for the interactions between their organisation and the global business environment. By the fifth module, students apply their learning to the problems and opportunities of leading and managing through disruptive change, of strategically aligning organisations for the future, and of appreciating and managing an organisation’s “triple bottom line”.

This online MBA programme offers students a range of recommended modules, in areas such as General Management, International Business, Marketing, Entrepreneurship or Finance & Accounting, or students can choose a selection of electives to create their own self-designed programme of study.

1-The blackboard (run by Laureate) is a horrible piece of software. 2-Teachers seem to be overworked. They assign too many students per class to them. They often respond in one sentence. Sometime they do no reply at all (to emails or questions). They limit your participation. 3-The university, it seems, accept just about any student, at least ...
