The North's top business school launches UK’s first MBus in Business and Management

Top UK business school Bradford University School of Management is offering ambitious school leavers the country’s first MBus in Business and Management.

The new four year programme starting in September 2013 is designed to be a fast track to a management career for the most able A level students.

Dr Damian Ward, Associate Dean Undergraduate Programmes at Bradford University School of Management, explains: “Four year undergraduate Master’s qualifications are commonplace in science and technology, but Bradford is the first business school to offer it in business and management.

"The MBus is an integrated degree that starts at undergraduate level and goes all the way to Master’s level. It builds on the solid foundations of our established BSc programmes in business and management."

The new MBus includes two compulsory work placement blocks.  These are real, paid jobs  and the School has a network of employers that offer placements including IBM, Vauxhall, NHS, GE Money, Pace, Enterprise Rent A Car, Cummins and Peugeot.  It also has its own dedicated careers and placement team to help students.

"Employability is a huge concern for students and parents," says Dr Ward. "Research shows that students who undertake work placements have a better chance of finding a good job after university.  We have worked with the School's employability committee to ensure that the content of the MBus is relevant to businesses.   

"The School has created an MBus programme that will give academic, ambitious students an edge when it comes to finding a graduate job.   They will have an advanced understanding of academic theory as well as practical business and management skills from compulsory work placements.  That will make them very attractive to potential employers.

"This will be a challenging course with advanced modules at Master's levels.  We will expect students to be achieving at least a 2:1 throughout the programme.  It will suit the most able A level students who want a significant business career after university."

The MBus in Business and Management also offer students the chance to study at an international university in either year two or three. For more information about the new programme go to http://www.brad.ac.uk/management/programmes/undergraduate/management/mbus-in-business-and-management/
