What is an MBA with Leadership all about?

The world of business is constantly evolving year on year. Each development brings new challenges, for which businesses need to adapt efficiently to remain competitive. This requires leaders that can inspire innovation, and get the best from their employees.

This MBA is designed specifically for graduates who have already taken their first steps in their business career, who are ready to move into leadership roles with more responsibility. During this programme, you’ll gain the knowledge and expertise that you need to progress into management positions, and will be ready to lead businesses of all sizes, whether your next role is with a start-up, SME or a multinational corporation. 

As part of this course, you’ll learn about different leadership styles, identifying sources of development and growth, and how to influence people in the best possible way, while inspiring team members in the pursuit of a collective goal. Upon graduation, you’ll be awarded an internationally recognised and respected qualification that proves you have the resilience, talent, and capability to take on positions of leadership and to build business success.

Where will this course take me?

This MBA course will help your career quickly progress, whether you choose to become a successful entrepreneur, or you want to lead within high-grossing multinational corporations. The ideas, skills and experience that you’ll gain from this course will help you to gain access to some of the most sought-after jobs in the industry.

Graduates of this programme have the potential to be offered some of the best employment opportunities, whether that is with SMEs or roles within international conglomerates such as Siemens, BAE Systems, the Virgin Group, Facebook, and Apple. MBA graduates are highly motivated and progress quickly in their roles, gaining promotion and taking on more responsibility that leads to greater salaries and reward packages. 

The type of role that MBA graduates may be suited to depends on their prior experience and aptitude. Graduates with less experience might apply for first line manager positions like Office Manager or Assistant Manager, through to middle management positions such as department head or director. Those with more significant work experience may look for executive, or C-suite positions such as Chief Operations Officer (COO) or Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Further information

Forbes defines leadership as ‘a process of social influence, which maximises the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal’. 

There are many other definitions of leadership that you’ll learn about on this course, and many types of leadership styles. In many cases, social influence and having the trust of your team, rather than authority or power are the key to successful leadership.”

Becoming a good leader isn’t just about achieving a fantastic salary. Great leaders need to be able to: 

  • Communicate honestly, and openly with all members of the organisation
  • Connect with team members, receiving and assessing new ideas respectfully
  • Encourage employees to grow both personally and professionally 
  • Maintain a positive attitude in the face of adversity 
  • Empower and inspire employees, trusting them to do their jobs rather than giving orders 
  • Give positive and accurate feedback about performance 
  • Accept feedback gracefully and understand your own strengths and weaknesses, while continuing to evolve
