The Global MBA is accredited by CMI. What would you say are the main benefits of the collaboration?
We are offering students career-boosting credentials and skills that we know employers want from their future leaders.
When we asked over 1,500 employers ‘what are the skills you want to see?’ they told us that communication, problem-solving and team skills are the top three, and this is exactly what students master on this programme. 75% of employers also said that professional accreditation boosts employability and that a global mind-set is absolutely critical.
So when students graduate with a Level 7 Strategic Qualification in Management from CMI as well as a very prestigious University of London Global MBA, they are truly boosting their employability by presenting employers with exactly the skills they seek.
This Global MBA reaches out to female managers everywhere in the world, which is absolutely vitally important.
Does your research also inform what students hope to gain from the programme?
We have led research on what people expect, and what young people expect, from digital learning.
They want it to be personal, social, innovative and credible. And all of this is reflected in the content of the University of London Global MBA as well as in the MOOCs that we’ve co-designed and co-created to help promote this wonderful opportunity.
This makes perfect sense in today’s digital world because most people want to work flexibly and the Global MBA allows them to fit their studies around their lives and earn while they learn.
