The most popular Master’s degree in the world can be studied face-to-face for the first time in Shropshire with the creation of University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS) – and an open evening is taking place to help people find out more.

UCS is offering the chance to study the Master of Business Administration (MBA) in the county. Further details on the part-time postgraduate course starting in October will be available at an open event at UCS’s learning and research base at Guildhall in Shrewsbury on Tuesday 6 September 2016, running from 6pm to 8pm.

During the event people will be able to discover more about the course, the application process and funding options, including the new Postgraduate Loan scheme. They can also meet course tutors and leaders and take a tour of Guildhall.

Jon Britten, Director of Business at UCS, said:

“Valued by both students and employers, the MBA is the most popular Master’s qualification in the world – for good reason.

“The MBA supports managers and aspiring managers to accelerate their careers, providing the knowledge and capability to think and work strategically, and be successful in leading organisational change.

“Up until two years ago, Shropshire had no options for those wanting to study an MBA face-to-face, but UCS has made this possible. Our curriculum has a focus on business and giving students both practical and academic skills, so this course is an important part of our postgraduate choices.

“We are currently taking applications for our third MBA cohort and look forward to welcoming prospective students to Guildhall at the open evening next month.”

The MBA modules are the same as those delivered at the University of Chester (Business School), where they have been refined over many years to deliver maximum benefit to students’ careers and organisations.

Key business areas are covered, including finance, marketing, leadership and ethics, and the programme culminates in a research project which gives students the opportunity to add practical value in their workplace.
