Top 25 European business school, Bradford University School of Management, is launching a new executive modular MBA in Manila in October.
The MBA, will be offered in partnership with the Australian International School (AIS) and will be the only MBA in the Philippines which features in the prestigious Financial Times top 100 worldwide MBA listings
It strengthens Bradford University School of Management’s presence in South East Asia. The school already offers MBA programmes in Singapore, Hong Kong as well as other locations across the world.
Dr Jonathan Muir, director of studies for the programme said: “We are launching the new MBA in association with AIS in order to provide students in the Philippines with an opportunity to develop their managerial knowledge and skills through studying established and contemporary business practices.
“The MBA will provide students with an opportunity to develop their business networks as we offer the choice to study some subjects at Bradford University School of Management in the UK or at one of our partner institutions in Dubai and Singapore.”
Antonio Esteban, executive director of AIS, said: “This is a unique opportunity for managers in the Philippines to earn an international top 100 ranked MBA from the UK. While many students will want to study without leaving the country – with the faculty coming to Makati to deliver classes – others will welcome the chance to study some subjects outside the Philippines.
“As the global market for MBA graduates continues to grow, the Bradford MBA will give managers in the Philippines a distinct international edge. The Bradford MBA will also appeal to owners and managers of family businesses who need the skills to take their companies to the next level. By bringing together students and academics from around the world, including leading Filipino business educators, the Bradford MBA is global in perspective as well as being locally relevant”
The Bradford School of Management is the only school in the Philippines to be accredited with Equis and AMBA. The Bradford MBA attracts business leaders from Europe, China, USA, the Middle East and Asia.
The Bradford executive modular MBA will have four intakes a year and can be studied over two to six years, depending on an individual’s personal circumstances. There are just 20 places for the October start. Typical subjects covered in the programme include International Financial Management, Entrepreneurship and Managing International Business in Emerging Economies.
