Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Programme Summary

An MBA is an academic qualification designed to equip individuals with specialized knowledge and skills across functions of any business undertakings.

The University of Wales MBA at IIHE is designed to achieve the above objective through a programme of 12 taught modules and a dissertation. Eight core modules and 4 electives will be taught .The electives are offered to facilitate limited specialization such as Finance, Marketing and HR. In addition to the taught modules, students are required to undertake a research based dissertation. This requires an MBA candidate to identify a management problem and to provide solutions to the problem using scientific methodology and the knowledge and skills acquired from the taught modules. This unique experience develops a manager who finds solutions to organizational problems through a rational decision making process rather than through gut feeling. Candidates armed with the Wales MBA will be able to become strong business leaders.
