MBA- International Business & Finance


The Postgraduate programme, MBA International Business & Finance is being developed to cater to the large demand for a qualification that focuses on Accounting and Finance within the international business environment. The shortage of qualified students in the region possessing a qualification that encompasses both business and finance knowledge and skills has created a vacuum in the market. This internationally respected degree has been redesigned to reflect the evolving nature of business and the global challenges facing business leaders. It focuses on developing strategic analytical skills, business intuition, and enquiring and adaptive thinking.

Market research has demonstrated solid demand for students to be able to achieve both an academic qualification and gain professional exemptions. The MBA International Business & Finance will qualify students for exemptions in ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) allow them to qualify professional qualifications along with the Course.
