About this course

The IMC MBA is a generalist, broad-based advanced management degree that integrates management theory and business practice. Providing an integrated approach to management education, the MBA covers key functional business areas, including finance, accounting, marketing and human resources. The course also leads to an understanding of an organisation's internal dynamics (leadership and strategy) and the complexity of the firm's external economic environment.

Besides functional discipline knowledge, the IMC MBA is committed to developing cognitive skills and competencies. As part of its integrated approach, the ability to contextualise, identify issues, debate points of view, develop strategies, manage projects, convey messages (communication), work in teams (personal and collaborative skills) and engage in self-reflection are embedded in specific subjects, with progression from entry to higher order skill levels. The MBA also requires students to engage and grapple with ethical and social responsibility problems, which include ethical dilemmas, case studies and project writing.

The MBA displays program integration, where learning outcomes are mapped and measured against curriculum design and assessment to ensure that the program is cohesive and that all the graduate attributes are achieved. One distinctive feature of the IMC MBA is its reliance on real-life business problems, embedded through "active learning sessions" and a capstone business project.

Our MBA offers early exit awards at the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma levels.
