The Master of Business Administration (Self-Study) is an internationally recognized degree designed to develop the skills required for careers in business and management. The value of the MBA, however, is not limited strictly to the business world.

There is a lot of discussion back and forth about the benefits of doing your MBA (Self-Study Mode). One of the big advantages for those already in the workplace and familiar with what they want to achieve with their MBA degree can be the ability to take the knowledge they have gained from the research and to apply it to a business focused paper that they can add to their portfolio. Also, if the area they want to excel in is a passion for them, the benefits of their research for their MBA degree could have far reaching consequences and impact that business area, paving the way for them truly to contribute to the area of research they care about the most.

Are You Ready?

Why not make an investment in your future and your company’s success, by participating in the MBA (Self-Study Mode)? You’ll gain confidence and vigor, as well as gain different perspectives about your business activities, from your mentors and peers. All you have to do is begin—the time will fly by and the rewards will be great.

The goal of this program is to help practicing managers, leaders and business owners become more effective in their work by providing them with a foundation in current business theories and practices. The program covers subject areas found in academic MBA degree programmes.
