    Course Summary

    Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s MBA degree prepares you for your choice of leadership or management careers in the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. No matter what industry or career path you choose, you’ll have several challenging and lucrative options.

    This is really three MBA programs in one, as it can be taken either as a generalist MBA (as described below), an MBA with a focus on International Business or an MBA focusing on Asset Management. The degree you receive will depend primarily on the optional modules you choose. All of the modules offered comply with the Institute of Directors Competency Framework.

    You’ll learn about the world of business and business management from industry professionals and published academics in the field. What you learn will make you a more effective leader, but will also give you the entrepreneurial knowledge you need to make a start-up succeed, or to rise to the top of a business or business unit.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Over two trimesters, you’ll take a total of six taught modules outlined below.
