More about the MBA
Unlike an MA or MSc, where concentration on a more narrow specialism is the norm, an MBA widens the net of subjects of study. There are the obvious business influenced subjects of accounting and finance, but also economics, psychology and sociology.
An MBA degree exposes students to a variety of subjects, including:
- strategic management
- operations management
- information technology management
- supply chain management
- understanding government policy
and many more.
