  • MBA DEGREE (BBA/MBA Integrated Curriculum) -This curriculum incorporates Bachelor-Hons and Master's academic years into one qualification that could be completed within a period of  ±30 months at a reduced cost based on an uninterrupted academic programme.
  • MBA DEGREE (Post-Graduate Abridged Curriculum) - This curriculum accommodates students, who have already completed a Bachelor's Degree or qualification of equal standing, with an opportunity to obtain a Master in Business Administration (MBA) Degree within a period of ±18 months by completing an abridged curriculum based on an uninterrupted academic programme. 

The MBA (Capstone) (Dissertation) builds on the theory and practical application of the UniQual/Ofqual prescribed generic BBA/MBA curriculum completed during the Dip.Man, HDip.Man, GDip.Man and PGDip.BMan academic phases and forms the final academic phase of the MBA Degree pathway resulting in a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) (RQF-L7) Degree that is awarded by the UK or alternative university of choice as selected by the candidate.
