missing modules at the end.
Admission requirements for recruitment up to October 2013
An initial University degree – Bachelor or Postgraduate (Diploma de Licenţă, Masterat, etc.) or overseas
equivalent or an equivalent professional qualification (ACCA, ACII, ACMA, CIM, CFA, etc.). However, as not all
candidates have followed a traditional educational route, we will take into account comparable qualifications
and extensive professional experience.
A significant post-graduation and relevant work experience of at least two years in any field
Competency in English language is obligatory (qualifications: TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge or other relevant
English language proficiency examinations or qualifications)
Two supporting references from the employer, alma school of graduation or collaborating private or public

Curricula & Methodology
Part One of the scheme (the assessed taught element) consists of 10 modules totalling 120 credits (10 x 12
credits). This taught part of the programme is based on seven (7) core modules and three (3) optional specialized
modules. Part Two of the scheme consists of Dissertation (in total 60 credits).
Students can build up credits through out the course while students are awarded the MBA degree when
accumulating 180 credits. Provision will be made at the end of the taught part for students to exit with a Diploma in
Management Studies (DMS) having accumulated 120 credits. The rational behind this provision is for students
who, for whatever reason, feel unable to cope with the demands of a full MBA. Such student will be allowed to
reregister after one academic year following their exit.
The philosophy behind the structure of the scheme and evidence of its linked nature can been seen in the
development of modules. Core modules provide a foundation in the basic principles of management and business,
finance, marketing, strategy. Knowledge and understanding on business issues is built on to encourage strategic
thinking at a higher level. Electives provide students with a more in depth analysis and approach and give an
international perspective on those issues
Students on the General MBA course may choose any of the elective optional modules. (depending on demand –
a minimum of 8 students per optional module is required).
Students wishing to specialise and study Finance or Banking or Marketing or HRM should choose the relevant
modules. (depending on demand – a minimum of 8 students per optional module is required).
The programme is designed to develop students into independent learners over their period of study. MBA is a post
experience degree and is seen as a career accelerator or a mean to make a career shift after a minimum of 2 or 3
years’ professional experience. Thus, the ultimate goal is to provide the student with the advanced knowledge and
critical analysis necessary to be an effective and efficient manager. We successfully use small groups of
students from different backgrounds, led by senior academic staff, to produce an interactive, peer group
learning experience. This learning is further enhanced by assessment based on the students’ ability to apply their
new knowledge to their own and other organisations problems.
Students are expected to:
Participate and learn how to manage change
Develop their individual learning skills and styles
Focus on their work practices and link theories and concepts to organizational, managerial and professional
activities in the business environment
Analyze organizational and managerial problems in light of relevant theories and concepts
Competently handle case studies and other practical learning situations
The modules are assessed with both written assignments and examinations.
