CORPORATE MASTER IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (CMBA)

Introduction

The CMBA gives the working professionals the flexibility to upgrade their managerial skills and career growth. If you want to shape your career to meet the challenges of a complex and changing business environment, this innovative CMBA is ideal for you. The programme has attracted a highly motivated community of students from diverse academic backgrounds and working experiences. We bring together experienced, dedicated and qualified lecturers to ensure the programme is innovative, application-oriented and multi-disciplinary. The CMBA is outstanding because it has retained the best features of the traditional MBA combined with contemporary features demanded by today’s business managers.

CMBA Programme

The CMBA programme ensures a general business education while allowing students to tailor the programme to individual interests and requirements. It is conducted within a modularised academic framework. The programme is structured into three components, each defining a specific functional area of study. The components are divided into Core, Electives and the Corporate Business Project. The Core component provides the foundation of a general business education. Three courses in the core component provide background knowledge and a general overview of business management. Students with the necessary qualifications may be exempted from taking these courses. Additionally, another five courses are required which makes for a total of eight compulsory courses for all students to ensure that students have a common level of knowledge in the fundamentals of business, irrespective of their backgrounds.
The Electives component encourages students to reach a deeper understanding of management issues in mainly three functional areas of Finance, Business Economics and Human Dynamics. The Electives component requires students to explore ideas and to further investigate managerial issues. Students are allowed to select any five courses from this component to match their interests or career needs.
The Corporate Business Project is the final component of the CMBA programme. The Corporate Business Project requires students to demonstrate a critical approach to management problems and a capacity to relate specific issues to broader management perspectives. The Corporate Business Project is focused on a practical approach to any chosen core or elective course of interest, producing results with practical uses.
To complete the CMBA Programme, a student must accumulate 44 credit hours, 24 credit hours from the Core component, 15 credit hours of the Elective component and 5 credit hours of the Corporate Business Project, making a total of 44 credit hours. The degree awarded is Corporate Master in Business Administration (CMBA).

 

 

Programme Schedule

Courses are usually taught on weekends, and each 3 credit course takes about 6 hours per weekend class for a duration of 7 weekends. The minimum length of completing the full-time programme is 18 months, and each year consists of two 14 week semesters.

Programme Structure

The CMBA is studied over a minimum of 18 months; this would mean a programme of study over 5 semesters. This programme consists of 8 core modules, 5 elective modules and a final year Corporate Business Project. The core components form the cornerstone of the CMBA, and students must complete the Core component before moving on to the Elective component.
The Elective component allows you to customise the CMBA in line with your personal needs and career path. The Corporate Business Project is the most rewarding part of the entire CMBA, because it offers a learning exercise relevant to your special needs and aspirations, thereby contributing to your future career and professional development.
