The MBA is designed for any individual moving into, or in a senior or strategic management role. It is an ambitious and accessible development opportunity for those who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to further develop their theoretical understanding of higher-level leadership and management skills. We have designed this MBA in collaboration with employers to ensure high quality education and training with relevance to the business community.  

The course is taught through distance learning, using MLA College’s innovative Total Learning Package combined with a high degree of tutor support.  There are opportunities to attend our Residential Summer Schools, where you will experience short, intensive periods of face-to-face delivery. 

These residentials, although optional, are highly recommended and will enable you to meet fellow students and discuss your learning in detail with your tutors.

This course is a full Master of Business Administration which has been validated, co-developed and is co-taught by our partners, Plymouth Marjon University[1]

Plymouth Marjon University is ranked No 1 in the UK for teaching quality[2], in the Top 10 in the UK for student experience[3] and Number 5 in the UK for Teachers and Lecturers[4].

The MBA prepares students for leadership roles such as General Manager, Senior Manager, Section Leader, Executive, Director, COO, CFO, CEO, CIO roles and senior military officers.

Why should I choose this course?

This course has a  flexible approach, which enables you to study alongside work - we blend online learning with optional intensive face-to-face residential teaching weeks in the UK.

We encourage all students to develop and apply their own values to their business practice, and you'll be taught and guided by leading academics with practical industry experience of running businesses.

Although studying by distance learning, you will not be alone, and you will have the chance to interact with your fellow students through online discussion forums and seminars.  You will also have a dedicated Student Support Officer from MLA College to look after you.

Our students give us outstanding feedback about their experiences of learning with us, and MLA College has many years’ experience of supporting distance learning students to achieve excellent outcomes.  Our partner, Plymouth Marjon University is ranked No 1 in the UK for teaching quality[5], and you can be assured of the highest quality learning experience.
