Embarking on this MBA is a clear signal to your employers that you’re strongly motivated to succeed. Tailor your studies to focus closely on your current role and boost your educational leadership and management skills to an advanced level.
Studied by distance learning, our MBA in Educational Leadership and Management responds to the growing demand for new and innovative service methods. It’ll hone and develop your existing management and leadership skills, giving you the opportunity to reflect on contemporary practices and theories and enabling you to push forward in a leadership or management role in your workplace for the benefit of both pupils and staff.
Modules are relevant whether you’re working in the UK or overseas, employed in a leadership or management role or simply taking on parts of the job in your teaching position. The distance learning elements are interactive, where you’ll participate in online discussion. You’ll also use text, audio and video as well as e-books and e-journals and wider research online. You’ll be able to discuss key topics with fellow students and tutors.
Whether you’re a teacher with some management responsibilities or a leader in an institution, you can boost your career with this course.
You'll be assessed in a variety of ways. Individual, creative responses to the tasks are welcomed but they’ll also give you the chance to refine your academic writing skills. Assessments will mainly be written, focused on practice and drawn upon evidence from practice in line with the subject benchmarks of the MBA.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
