Why study this course?

This extended master’s programme is designed for international students who wish to pursue postgraduate study at London Metropolitan University and will allow guaranteed progression on to our Master of Business Administration (MBA).

More about this course

Our Extended Master’s in Business Administration begins with a 12-week programme that will help improve your English language ability and study skills before starting your MBA course. There is also the opportunity for those who need extra English language support to complete a pre-sessional course prior to the extended master’s programme.

Following this initial 12 weeks, you will go on to join our Master of Business Administration (MBA). You’ll develop your understanding of business operations and the external factors affecting organisations, as well as how to navigate business decisions in a changing environment. You'll gain practical skills and experience through business simulations, where you’ll be making real business decisions to ensure the imitation businesses make a profit and can operate. We are one of the few universities in the UK that incorporates business simulation activities into our course.

Assessment

Your assessments at the end of each module have been carefully designed to ensure you have the opportunity to demonstrate your learning and meet the stated outcomes. Assessment methods include essay writing, formal examinations, report writing, group working, debating and formal presentations, together with the compiling of a portfolio of tasks and activities undertaken.

The programme is planned to build both your self-esteem and your confidence so you’re able to engage fully with study within the UK.

Your early modules will concentrate on supporting and directing your learning in a focused manner to ensure you’re developing at the appropriate rate and that your understanding, skills development and learning is progressing as it should. As the programme unfolds and you move to the second semester modules, the support and direction they receive will gradually be reduced and the students will transition to greater independence and autonomy.

Assessments throughout your modules will form an important part of assessing your progress. In-class activities including group working and discussion, mock debates, writing activities, mock examinations and tutor feedback given to you regarding your individual performance will ensure that you’re fully prepared for the assessments that take place at the end of each module.

Details about assessments during your specific master’s course can be found on our MBA course page.
