About MBA at Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

Course summary

You understand that the world is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.

You have at least three years of professional or managerial experience where you have held a position of responsibility and can share your experience with others.

You are aiming high and are prepared for a challenge - that's why you're reading this.

The Aspiring Director's MBA - work with, for, and on boards

Born of Westminster Business School's 30 years' experience of delivering MBA programmes, the new Westminster MBA is designed to support your aspirations.

It prepares you to work with, for and on boards, as a professional and versatile director. To help achieve this we have embedded our own Directors Attributes Framework throughout the programme. These attributes are reflected on throughout your MBA journey to help you become a professional director.

It prepares you to lead, to innovate, and collaborate.

The Westminster MBA builds on your existing professional experience, skills and capabilities using self-directed and experiential learning. The programme incorporates action learning, and runs within our Directors' Community: a physical boardroom and a virtual space where you interact with faculty, peers, real organisations and MBA alumni.

You will design your own learning journey using the learning and teaching formats offered by the MBA team in a way that best suits your learning style, your strengths, and your career needs.

You will experience four different roles on four shadow boards, working with different kinds of host organisation.

By the time you graduate, you will understand your board-level strengths and know how and where you wish to apply them. You will be able to provide tangible evidence of your ability to perform as a professional board member.

All students on our full-time Business Masters courses can apply to undertake the PG/MBA Internship Programme, which forms part of the Reflective Practitioner Module.

The internship allows you to test drive a career and explore one of your career interests before you complete your Postgraduate studies!

Completing an 8-12 week accredited internship helps students gain invaluable work experience. This fantastic work experience can be taken in addition to option modules. Students are responsible for finding their own internship with the support of the Business Experience Team.

To express an interest in the module, students must submit a completed application form and a copy of their updated CV. This will give students membership a dedicated website that offers exclusive access to internship vacancies, one to-one CV guidance appointments, mock interviews, employability workshops and much more.

Students can apply to London-based organisations and have the flexibility to take their internship in the summer period or alongside their studies.

Every year we receive very positive feedback from both postgraduate students and employers and expect that the internship programme will continue to remain popular amongst our students.

The Business Experience Team also offers full-time overseas MBA participants the opportunity to take part in our WBS Mentoring Programme. We will match participants with a senior professional (mentor) from their field of expertise to give them an exact insight into British working practices and policies. Experienced professionals in any business field share their career experiences and knowledge with participants who may wish to venture down a similar path in the near future. Our mentors come from a wide range of backgrounds, including marketing, management, finance and entrepreneurship. In addition, our mentors typically offer 3 hours of their time over a 3 month period to the mentee. In addition, to one-to-one meetings, students are encouraged to keep in touch with their mentor over email and telephone.

The MBA Consulting Project is set out to be an educational collaboration between a host organisation and Westminster Business School, thereby providing participants with an important opportunity to incorporate new ideas they have encountered in class. An MBA Consultancy Project can be the foundation to your final dissertation.

As part of the programme participants go into a company to act as a Management Consultant to solve a management issue(s). Participants may wish to use this opportunity as your first experience in a career change, a taste of the career/sector area you are planning to move into, or as a complete wildcard and something you may not get the opportunity to do again.
