LCBSFrom building expertise to gaining experience of different business operations, an MBA has something for everyone. Find out more about what Leicester Castle Business School has to offer

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification aims to prepare professionals for future challenges within both their company and industry by building on their business expertise and giving them exposure across all areas fundamental to business operation.

Not only do those who decide to push themselves and undertake the challenge of an MBA develop the necessary skills required for senior management roles, through the studying of topics such as finance, marketing, leadership and strategic decision making but they also gain the unique opportunity to grow and develop their professional networks outside of their usual sphere of influence.

Who is an MBA for?

An MBA program is suitable for professionals who are looking to develop their leadership skills and professional profile. The courses are challenging and highly demanding, but for those dedicated to it may also result in faster career progression and new career opportunities, as well as personal as well as professional executive development.

MBA graduates are also continuing to achieve high salaries, beating averages from a decade ago, according to the latest research from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

An MBA is an investment in both your career and yourself. It is for those who are looking to better their position and gain the skills to rise to the top of their industry either in a company or for their own.
