A new Global MBA, developed around an extensive range of specialisms in Law, Finance, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Accountancy and Leadership, has been launched by the University of London and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).

The Global MBA comes with professional accreditations from major international bodies, including the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), allowing students to present themselves for professional recognition on successful completion of the award. A significant feature of the programme is a business simulation enabling students to apply key concepts to real world problems. This innovative award has been designed specifically for career professionals, and provides considerable flexibility in both mode and place of study, while offering students four entry and examination points per year. This will help students to successfully combine work and study. Learning materials and online tools, specially designed for the Global MBA, will equip students to understand and address the enormous challenges that face today’s global business leaders.

Professor Sir Adrian Smith FRS, Vice-Chancellor, University of London, said: “This is a very exciting new program being delivered through the University of London. It’s current, it’s relevant, and it meets the needs of career professionals and employers in a broad range of sectors.” 

He added: “This program is also unique in that we have collaborated with professional organisations of the highest international standing. These organisations will provide our students with huge benefits by securing their ongoing personal and professional development.” 

Dr. Mary Stiasny OBE, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), University of London, said: “With the academic expertise provided by an internationally acclaimed faculty from QMUL, and our experience in delivering quality academic awards across the world since 1858, we believe this programme will enrich the working lives of the diverse array of professionals who choose to enrol on this programme, and their employers across the world.” 

Professor Ioannis Kokkoris, Program Director for the Global MBA, QMUL, said: “Whether it is the case of advancing your career, switching to another industry or starting your own business – the University of London Global MBA will give you the confidence, the skills and the connections to create your own success story.” 

Applications for the Global MBA open on 9 January 2017 and students are given the flexibility to pay per module rather than all at once. Students without all the entry qualifications will be able to take an online ‘International Business Essentials’ module and, on successful completion, this may contribute to them becoming eligible to apply for the Global MBA.  

Other postgraduate awards from this program (at diploma and certificate level) are also available for students wishing to gain a general or specialist qualification.
