Programme Leader’s Welcome
Welcome to the online MBA programme at Middlesex University. It is a great pleasure to have you in our programme and we wish you a very productive and enjoyable learning experience. All the academic members associated with the MBA are experts in their field and address any issue you have with the modules taught in the programme. The assessment structure of the programme is practice oriented and it is designed in a manner suitable for enriching your managerial and business skills.
As this is an online programme, there are no exams and most of assessment components are coursework based. Please ensure that you prepare all the tasks related to the online learning sessions plus that you engage to online discussions with your fellows and academic staff.
Interaction is a key element of the online MBA, so active participation is required and expected from everyone. This is the path to maximise knowledge gains and acquire new skills and techniques. Our MBA is characterised by a great ethnic diversity and we view this as a great opportunity for our online students to build up new business networks as well as to exchange experience with colleagues from around the world.
Finally, I would strongly recommend you to use our Learning Resources in preparing your assessment tasks. Learning facilities of Middlesex University are a major asset so it is of crucial importance for all participants to benefit by maximising their use.
The role of Programme Leader is to support and advise you on academic matters throughout your studies in the MBA programme. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your learning and career objectives.
