MBA Advanced Entry Programme​

The MBA Advanced Entry (MBA Top Up) route is specially designed for students that hold an approved Level 7 Post Graduate Diploma in a Management subject. Students with this qualification can apply directly onto the programme and complete 60 credits to qualify for the award of MBA. The course consists of the Research Methods module (20 credits) and the Dissertation (40 credits) on a topic of their choice, making it a popular option for individuals committed to developing their careers in senior management.

Due to the current climate, the course is delivered through a distance learning mode of study; information and guidance given to the student mirrors which would have ordinarily been given during the induction week at either Cardiff Metropolitan University or one of our partners. There are scheduled interactive webinars for Research Methods followed by one-to-one sessions with a designated supervisor for the Dissertation. Help and guidance is provided along the way plus online tools to support development.

On successful completion of the course, the student receives a Cardiff Metropolitan University certificate in 'Master of Business Administration' as well as a transcript and HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report). The student is also invited to attend the graduation ceremony based in Cardiff.

The course content is made up of two parts and takes approximately seven months to complete. The first module is Research Methods (8 weeks) followed by the Dissertation (3.5 months, elapsed time is approximately 7 months), where the student will be required to submit an 8000-10,000-word Dissertation on their chosen subject, preferably related to their line of work.
