Course Structure: UOC Master of Business Administration

Much of the learning and the assignment in the MBA will be in the form of projects, mainly centered around work of the students – Action Learning Pedagogy. It is important to draw a picture of what these might look like, appreciating that clarity will only fully come in the conversations when you are planning these out with the Faculty and work colleagues. Learning is better achieved in smaller clearly defined project work where students can explore inter-connected themes at play with, for example, strategy, leadership culture etc.
