Online MBA to be taught alongside an Oxford business school
London Metropolitan University has partnered with Magna Carta College in Oxford to deliver an online MBA course.
This unique MBA blended learning programme, which enables students from all over the world to pursue their studies while in employment and is accredited by London Met, combines the best tutorial systems with the best of digital learning.
Dr Simon Jones, Dean of the Guildhall School of Business and Law, said: “The Guildhall School of Business and Law, at London Metropolitan University, is delighted to work with Magna Carta College, who are delivering the London Met MBA online. Magna Carta extends the University's global reach, and its business influence through their expertise offering on-line courses with the highest standards of Student Experience.
“Both London Met and Magna Carta College are determined in their belief of the transformation education can achieve both for the individual and the national economy. Through our collaboration, students who could not normally reach the academic expertise and degree courses of the Guildhall School of Business and Law, are able to undertake our MBA, supplemented by the commitment and care on-line academic tutoring offered by Magna Carta College.”
The course aims to help students progress in their career. One student is currently a finance manager within the NHS. They decided to study the MBA course after completing their Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) course in 2015.
The MBA top up will be taught by Magna Carta College and be validated by London Met.
Professor David Faulkner, Dean of Magna Carta College, Oxford, said: “We are deeply committed to bringing about change in the world through learning. Our mission is to ensure that an MBA is not simply limited to those who can afford both the normally stratospheric business school fees and the immense time commitment and impact that can have on careers.
“We believe that our MBA programme will enable a new generation of students to achieve their goals. We are addressing the key career challenge facing Generation Y all over the world: how can they stand out from the competition? For our student, our MBA is that key differentiator. This MBA programme offers the opportunity to be taught by Oxbridge faculty, and our students and MBA graduates are clear examples of the success of blended learning. They are part of our community, and our MBA fits around their lives and commitments. But most importantly, it is giving them the clear Oxbridge advantage to reaching and exceeding their career goals, and to standing out from and above the competition.”
Applications are open for the next intake, which begins in April.
