Our MBA provides the flexibility to tailor the content of your programme to suit your goals and ultimately, after taking a common core of management subjects, you can choose to keep your MBA general or focus your studies on developing skills in a specialist area.

In addition we have two distinct programmes designed to help you achieve your MBA qualification in the way that best suits your personal circumstances. The Full-Time MBA is an intensive, one-year programme, whereas the Evening MBA lasts two years, with lectures provided two evenings a week and occasional residential weekends. Whichever programme you choose to follow you have the knowledge that they share the highest academic standards.

A good MBA programme should offer you as much flexibility as possible to tailor the process to your career objectives. Both programmes are, therefore, designed to offer you the optimum level of choice. The mechanisms by which the choice is achieved may vary slightly between the programmes and even over time. However, this merely represents our efforts to provide a business education that reflects the dynamism of the contemporary environment and the demands of students' lives.

Both programs consist of three main elements:

1.A Core Management Programme taken by all participants and assessed by coursework and examinations.

2.A range of Specialist and Elective Courses which may be selected from the following generic areas:
-General and Strategic Management
-Strategic Management of Technology & Electronic Business
-International Business and Management

All courses are designed to integrate theory and practice and to inform you of the latest developments. You will choose your courses from a list of options designed to address both breadth and depth in each subject case and provide you with a matrix of opportunities from which you can design the MBA most suited to your needs.

3.A Business Project
The final element of your MBA focuses on a major business project that provides an opportunity to put your skills into practice and develop your managerial capabilities.

The specialist library for the Business School was completely refurbished and remodeled in 1996 in a development funded by the Cyril Kleinwort Foundation. Its resources support all areas of business and management teaching, learning, and research. Material include about 30,000 books (for varying periods of loan) and 1000 journal titles (over 700 in electronic full text), as well as special collections of earlier MBA dissertations and an archival set of higher degree theses completed at the Business School. The library catalogue is fully networked, enabling you to check holdings at any time of the day or night, to make reservations, or to renew existing loans.

As you would expect from a modern Business School library, there is heavy investment in electronic information with subscriptions to more than 15 specialist databases (some fully networked, others on dedicated machines). This includes the academic and technical journals referred to above, but also company news and financial data, together with economic information and statistics. In addition, the UK interloan system has a high renown for delivering published papers not held in the local library. All students may use this service for a small charge.

The Cyril Kleinwort Library also offers a comfortable study environment. There is a dedicated study area on the lower floor with 75 places, many of which are equipped for personal laptop use. The main floor houses all the print collections, interspersed with other blocks of seating (some casual, some with networked PCs). Modern self-service photocopiers are provided, and everything is backed up by a small team of staff who have built a reputation for friendly and expert service.

Housing :
The Accommodation Office at City University serves all prospective and registered full-time participants. It is responsible for administering and allocating places in the University's halls of residence and self-catering flats. Demand for accommodation always outstrips availability, so candidates who need a place to live should contact the Accommodation Office immediately after they have been offered a place on the programme.

The cost of living in London compares favourably with other overseas capital cities, but overseas participants should make adequate allowance for fees, books, clothing and other items, in addition to living expenses. A guide to living expenses is available on request from the Accommodation Office.
