MBA (Top-Up)

The Arden MBA Top-Up gives you the opportunity to build on existing qualifications and unlock enhanced career prospects. You may not have realised, but that postgraduate qualification you already have can fast-track you to a full MBA with just 12 months of study and at a fraction of the cost of a full MBA.

You will study a cross-cutting ‘strategic’ module, designed for practising managers looking to take the step upwards by considering contemporary ideas in a global context. The development and implementation of strategy and how you can sustain both yourself and the organisation you manage in the future are themes you will explore. This will be followed by a work-based project in a relevant area of your choice providing you with the opportunity to add value to your employer and enhance your cv.

This MBA provides a distinctive way of developing your achievements and thinking in preparation for key positions in industry, commerce and the public sector.

Modules are:

  • Implementing Strategy
  • Research Project
