Management Dual Programmes
As an MBA student you can complement your online degree with a ACCA or CIMA qualification- powered by Interactive.
While the online MBA is designed to give graduates a holistic overview of the core concepts of management, a professional qualification, whether ACCA or CIMA will build the hands-on skills that you need to get ahead in the modern international market. We're committed to helping students to advance their careers and as a graduate you'll be entering the marketplace with the knowledge and skills you need to reach the top. Dual programmes blend academic excellence with professional skills, offering more than just a qualification and raising your profile with employers.
Which Dual Programmes are on offer?
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global body for professional accountants. Combining this professional standard with your online MBA provides a strong combination of business theory and practical financial skills. The combination of MBA and ACCA allows you to access a much wider range of opportunities at senior level, from consulting to decision-making roles, increasing your marketability to employers and helping your career progression. You will be studying your master’s 100% online and you can choose to study your ACCA qualification 100% online or on campus. The on-campus students have free access to online resources powered by InterActive.
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification is built on three core pillars: Management Accounting, Business Management and Financial Accounting and offers a valuable, internationally recognised qualification. Combining CIMA with your MBA adds a management-focussed professional qualification to your postgraduate degree. Both programmes are delivered via the online platform, InterActive.
As a Dual Programme student you'll combine the academic standing of the online MBA with the hands-on professional skills of the CIMA programme. You'll develop both the 'hard skills' associated with economics, finance, marketing and management as well as the 'soft skills' of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication.
