What you will gain from the Salford MBA
The Salford MBA is a 12-month, full time intensive programme where students are given the opportunity to develop their managerial and entrepreneurial skills.
Our emphasis is focused upon practice-led teaching that encourages students to make the most of our local, national and international business connections, helping to develop a keen business acumen based upon a solid academic foundation.
Key skills you will learn on the course include:
"The hands on experience of working with law firm, DLA Piper, whilst applying what the MBA was teaching me was a real turning point. I could see how I could use these skills to forge out a career in business consultancy"- Sathish Govindaraj, 2011 MBA graduate.
"I chose the Salford MBA because the programme included industry-relevant modules and was designed to provide practical outputs. Besides that, the Salford MBA is accredited by AMBA which is synonymous with quality"- Erika Casanova from Sao Paulo, Brazil.– Best overall MBA Student prize winner 2012.
Effective and confident presentation skills - You will take part in both individual and group presentations where you will be required to communicate to a range of audiences. We will help you become an effective public speaker who can confidently engage an audience and effectively use a range of presentation aids.
Active thinking skills - Studying for an MBA will encourage you to think actively rather than passively accepting what you read and hear. To grasp entrepreneurial opportunities you must be able to construct a rational, logical and questioning approach that is free from personal bias - we aim to turn you into a truly original critical thinker.
Team working skills - Our MBA intake is the right size to be highly interactive - from the start of the programme you will learn the skills that allow a successful entrepreneur to work with, rather than against, the teams in which they work. You will enhance your negotiation skills to ensure that both you and your team perform to the maximum.
