Northumbria University Integrated Masters (MBus)

Upon completing 25 essential university-level business/management courses during the 1st and 2nd year, students can proceed to the MBus Business and Management (Integrated Masters Programme). MBus combines undergraduate and postgraduate study into a single programme, allowing learners to ‘top up’ their Level 5 qualification (such as an NVQ, Diploma, HND or Foundation Degree) to degree level. The full Integrated Masters from level 6 can be completed in 3 years or learners can choose to exit earlier with a BA (Hons) if that is their goal. There are also opportunities to take breaks from study after each module if this is required. The programme has been developed to recognise the often challenging lifestyles military learners operate in. No matter which option a learner chooses, they will develop advanced subject knowledge and gain the tools, and qualification, needed to progress a leadership and management career across all disciplines.
