    University of London - EXTERNAL PROGRAMME
    MBA and Postgraduate Diploma in International Management
    By Distance Learning

    Students may learn about this MBA programme through many different sources. We are authorised representatives for the MBA in the region and as such, provide marketing and non-academic support. All applications should be sent directly to the University Postgraduate Admissions Office for assessment. After enrolment, students will deal directly with the University at all times during their study. We are however happy to answer any queries and follow up on applications if you provide us with your full name and application reference number.

    Message from the Course Director.

    The University of London is a Federal University, granted Royal Charter in 1836 and now consisting of a number of Institutions including the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine, and Royal Holloway.

    The academic direction of this degree is undertaken by Royal Holloway.

    This MBA and Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip.) have been designed to equip students with the ability and skills to think globally and to meet the needs of modern business. Students will have the opportunity to specialise in subjects of both international and professional relevance.

    The MBA for External students is being benchmarked against the very highest world-wide standards. Core courses in international marketing, accounting and finance, human resource management, business strategy and business economics will be accompanied by professional and field electives, and a final research course and project.

    If, for whatever reason, you do not want to commit yourself to the full MBA, or have not yet worked for three years in a relevant field, you might like to consider applying for the Postgraduate Diploma in International Management. The Diploma consists of the six core courses of the MBA, and it can be completed in a minimum period of one year or a maximum of five years.

    Students who complete the Postgraduate Diploma and achieve marks of 50% or above for each course, may be invited by the Board of Examiners to progress to the elective courses and research course and, if successful in those, will be awarded the MBA in International Management. MBA graduates will not be awarded the Postgraduate Diploma in addition to the MBA.

    Students who successfully complete the Postgraduate Diploma units but do not continue beyond this stage will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in International Management.
