The Executive MBA is designed as a general management qualification for ambitious individuals with considerable work experience who are looking to further develop their business and strategic leadership skills. The overarching goal of the course is to produce graduates who can operate a business function, unit or organisation by building students' capabilities in technical, professional and interpersonal skills. The Executive MBA curriculum is strongly experientially oriented and provides students with decision-making experiences that emulate the real world of business. The requirements of professional bodies; recent research and scholarship data on successful graduates; information from employers and advisory committees; and industry groups have informed the attributes and learning goals. The course is structured in such a way that students can choose to progress through the degree in a group. The cohort model is designed to foster a sense of union, facilitate networking and encourage cooperative relationships with a focus on leadership and group dynamics. Career options include senior general management roles in business or business unit manager, business planning, business strategist, and general management consultant.
