MBA (Master of Business Administration) Global

USW's MBA Global programme is a unique two-year MBA which offers students the opportunity to gain up to ten months' worth of work-experience in the UK.

The MBA Global offers specialist pathways in Finance, HRM, Supply Chain Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship. It builds on a strong ethos of helping managers and leaders solve complex business problems while developing professionals who will make a strategic difference within the context of their organisations.

It will develop leadership and strategic thinking skills required to build successful teams and navigate growth within an uncertain, resource constrained and competitive business environment.

You will gain insights into how to prepare, plan and react efficiently to a rapidly changing environment.

The University is host to a vibrant, multicultural environment that provides excellent opportunity for you to gain global perspectives on business and management.


Students undertake a variety of assessments designed to build a portfolio of skills and competencies, from preparing scoping reports and briefings to applying theoretical knowledge developed on the modules to a range of applied settings and challenges. We place a good deal of emphasis on developing your communications and team-working skills to prepare you for the roles you will undertake in your professional careers. Formal written examinations are kept to a minimum and will only be used in relevant modules such as Finance.


The MBA programme will prepare students for employment within a range of sectors including retail, international management, consultancy, marketing and e-commerce.

It is ideal if you want to:

  • progress to a managerial or leadership position within an organisation
  • work for global companies and MNCs
