Finally, A Qualification That Listens to What the Employers Have Been Asking For!

There has been growing complaints from employers regarding the quality of employees who are academically qualified but are unable to deliver. There is a plethora of potential employees who are equipped with their bachelor’s qualification who are “full of talk” but rarely do much to change the bottom line of the organisations. Universities are now challenged to meet the demands of the employers; after all, most persons study so that they can get employed, or gain a promotion or even change their career. In many colleges, students are focused on passing their exams rather than learning and contributing; completing their assignments rather than gaining knowledge while doing so. As more employed persons seek to embark on their studies, they now have limited time to juggle work, studies, family life and personal matters. Lecturers are torn between completing the syllabus versus preparing the students for an assessment. Employers are seeking employees who are driven, can think outside of the box and are ready to work; employees who can apply the theories they were taught to create feasible business solutions; employees who are engaging, who are equipped and can add value to the workplace. Trying to meet each of these key stakeholders’ needs is truly a challenge.

Master’s Degree with Online Learning Portal

The University of Bedfordshire has been able to create a unique solution that considers each of these stakeholders with their master’s degree programmes. These programmes allow students to undertake an MBA with just one day of class per week where students interact with industry-leading experts as they share their best practices. In addition, students will have access to an online learning portal. These qualifications are practical (work applied), requiring students to solve real-life organisational issues. The solution often demonstrates a high measure of creativity and innovation by the students, with solutions that are practical and feasible to apply. By assessing students using assignments rather than tests, students spend more time developing solutions rather than trying to regurgitate facts and definitions. They have thus created a win-win situation for employers, students and the university.

 

The MBA is designed to be engaging, attractive and flexible in the current global marketplace. There are six entry points through the year. This allows you to start when it is most suitable. The entry points are:

  • January
  • March
  • June
  • July
  • September
  • November

 

The course takes place over three semesters. Depending upon when you join the course, this will determine the order of units which you will study. You will benefit by beginning your studies with others who started at one of the earlier points of entry.
