Amity’s Online MBA is a career development generalist Program for students with significant relevant work experience on which the learning process should build. The main emphasis of the Program is on leadership through strategic management. While the academic level is Masters, there is a strong practical and professional orientation to the curriculum.
As an MBA graduate, you should be able to ground your new knowledge within the base of your professional experience. You will be able to integrate new knowledge with that experience and apply it to new situations, and challenge preconceptions and remove subject and functional boundaries so as to handle complex situations holistically. Besides, you inculcate useful strengths to analyze, synthesize and solve complex and unstructured business problems. In addition to being able to communicate your findings, you develop the skills to implement agreed solutions effectively and efficiently. The Program is also designed to strongly develop interpersonal skills for interacting effectively with a range of specialists.
The qualification provides opportunities for you to develop and demonstrate knowledge, understanding, qualities, skills and other attributes in a range of different areas.
Knowledge and Understanding
You will be able to collect relevant information across a range of areas pertaining to a current situation. Within the broad framework of organizations, their external context and management, you will be able to use knowledge to analyze (by classifying, contrasting, discriminating, examining), to synthesize (by constructing, creating, formulating, hypothesizing, negotiating, planning, validating) and to evaluate (by appraising, concluding, judging, measuring, prioritizing, recommending) cases in the following areas:
After completion of the Online MBA Program, you will effectively be able to:
Practical and/or Professional Skills
You will be able to imbibe the following interpersonal and professional skills after successfully completing your module of study:
Key Organizational Skills
A few organizational skills that you master after completion of the Program are as follows:
You learn through two inter-related methods. First, using a range of specially-written study materials, case studies, original texts, study guides and assignments and through a range of multi-media material and activities. Secondly, your learning is supported through an allocated tutor. This tutor is your first and main point of contact. The tutor answers queries on the materials, grades and comments on your work and arranges and runs tutorials, face to face or online.
Samples of tutors’ marking and comments are monitored by members of the central module team or experienced tutors who provide feedback to generate comments intended to support and develop tutors’ assessment and grading of assignments.
In some cases the assignments may be formative (for example at the beginning of a module to enable you to develop your confidence), but usually they are summative, i.e. they count towards your module result. Modules may also include computer-marked assignments or examination papers.
Formative assessment in the form of informal self-assessed questions allow you progressively to assess your own progress and understanding. Formal assessment of knowledge and understanding components of the Program is achieved by a series of tutor-marked assignments (TMAs). These assignments are marked and assessed by the module tutor. They are central to the teaching of the module since they allow you an opportunity to display your knowledge and understanding – and in consequence any issues concerning either – and so enable tutors to identify and comment on your knowledge and understanding. Tutors receive detailed marking guidance from the module team.
You are also encouraged to participate in online forums at both national and local levels. This gives you a chance to share and resolve issues with fellow students as well as tutors and the module team.
Most modules also include a three-hour written examination but may involve an end-of-module assessment which could include an investigation-based report.
Making a difference: your management initiative is the final module of masters-level management learning and it’s designed to build upon all the studying that you’ve done in other modules.
This is the module where you take out one or more of the management theories that have intrigued you or made you think ‘if only we did that at our place...’ and try it out in the day-to-day reality of trying to make things happen in organisations.
This module is a chance for you to demonstrate the skills and knowledge that you have acquired as you progressed through the MBA. As such it should be viewed as a ‘showcase’ for your ability as a critical practitioner, able to fully engage with theory and its application in a real world context.
The ‘master’ in the degree title signifies your ‘mastery’ of the art and science of management. The emphasis for learning is directly rooted in management practice.
To achieve this level of capability the MBA programme concentrates on strategic analysis, interdisciplinary skills, intellectual stimulation and independent judgement and covers core themes such as: critical engagement; embedding theory in practice and global impact awareness.
Core disciplines that you'll study include human resource management, organisational behaviour, accounting and finance, marketing and operations.
In total, 75 per cent of the programme consists of compulsory elements with 25 per cent comprising elective modules. This enables you to select the curriculum to suit your needs. MBA modules are challenging, but will always direct you towards improving your management capabilities.
