(How is the programme structured?

The reenland Henley MBA programme is structured in 3 stages which build towards the final qualification, Master in Business Administration.

Stage 1 (Postgraduate Certificate)

The programme is structured in 3 stages, each part building cumulatively towards the MBA. Within each stage there are four to five major pieces of assessment. One is an examination and the others are written assignments.

The focus of Stage 1 is ‘Managing the Organisation’. Participants are provided with a better understanding of the reality of management in the 21st century and the role of the Manager. There is an explicit focus on learning and on the role of the manager.

There are four subjects in Stage 1:

Dynamics of Management develops principles and concepts that underpin the changing role of the manager and leader. It will help to introduce members into the MBA programme by developing foundational elements on which later modules will build. It will develop an understanding of the key roles of a 21st century manager and the critical areas of management dilemmas. The module will focus on advanced thinking and analytical skills, and build critical and creative approaches for effective practical application in the context of the changing world of work

Managing People and Performance considers managers and their engagement with individuals, teams and organisations and how this can impact on and drive performance. The module explores issues around the scoping, creating, reviewing and embedding of performance at the individual, organisational and strategic level in a range of contexts including international contexts. The discussion embraces issues such as the impact of context and culture, understanding human behaviour and motivation, leadership, managing elements of performance, coaching, training, development and organisational learning, team-working and talent management all of which are key to managing within contemporary organisations

Managing Processes, Systems and Projects takes a systems approach to the integration of operations management and information systems management. Systems and processes are viewed as the key enablers of business strategy and students gain an understanding of how systems fit together and of the complexity and tension in systems. The focus is on performance, innovation and change processes. Key topics covered include : Business Process Mapping, Value Chains, Make or Buy Decisions, Capacity Management, Quality Processes, Continuous Improvement and Knowledge Management.

Managing Financial Resources integrates the study of accounting, finance and microeconomics. It enables managers to be financially literate and confident in participating in financial decision-making and assessing business performance. It introduces the key concepts in these areas that managers need to understand to be able to function effectively and to understand the business context in which financial decisions are made. Key themes include Financial Statements, Financial Planning and Budgeting, Management Accounting and Decision Making, Financial Analysis and Valuation, Demand and Supply Analysis, Cost Analysis and Market Structure.

Personal Development Throughout the programme personal development opportunities help you to build your skills and knowledge in order to develop your management capabilities, your capacity for and commitment to continuous learning and your ability to work in and lead teams in different situations.

The module aims to enable you to:

  1. take control of your direction
  2. have and pursue life and career goals
  3. obtain maximum benefit for self and organisation from the learning opportunity
  4. reflect upon your own learning, performance and/or achievement and to plan for your personal, educational and career development

The assessment of personal development will be formative in nature but will be a required aspect of assessment. You will have to complete a personal developmental plan and a review and reflection on your learning at the end of each stage. Learning and Development Advisors will provide developmental assistance and feedback to programme members. The Personal Development Plan is to be submitted by each programme member in written form. There will be written, formative feedback in each case and a mark. There will also be a group review and a presentation in plenary.
