Due to current unfavorable conditions, we will suspend college operations for the academic year 2015-16. The information provided on this site refers to our courses as they were offered during 2013-14 and as they will hopefully be offered again during 2018-19.

 

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The British Hellenic MBA programme has been validated by the British University and leads to an MBA degree of the University. It is designed to equip students with essential modern management skills and knowledge and prepare them to have an enterprising spirit grounded on solid business practices.

Given the rapid changes seen in today’s growing business environment, the MBA programme aims to provide students with analytic decision making capabilities in order to be able to cope with different kinds of new challenges, as well as with all the necessary tools and techniques that will help them develop and manage internationally competitive products and services.

Beyond the future career prospects, the academic basis of the program, which ensures that it is an intellectually stimulating and challenging experience in its own right, also makes the MBA a valuable postgraduate degree program.

   Undertaking this MBA programme, students invest in qualifications which will be of value to them for the rest of their lives, as it will open up avenues in all aspects of industrial, financial, commercial and academic life.


Teaching and learning

MBA

The aim of the MBA programme is to develop the participants’ academic and managerial skills in the areas of business, finance, marketing and Human Resources Management. An important teaching and learning objective is to provide participants with relevant analytical training so that they become familiar with the latest strategic, managerial, quantitative and industry developments in the business and services industry. The learning process involves a wide variety of classroom approaches, including lectures, case studies, seminars, computer simulations, group projects and discussions.

Most modules are taught through lectures and tutorials. The basic module delivery method centrers around a four-hour lecture per week. All MBA modules are taught in evening hours twice per week. All lessons are taught in English.

The methods of study include, apart from the lectures and seminars, workshops (including computer based sessions), role playing and individual and group projects/ presentations related to current management issues.

The method of assessment is based on a combination of conventional examinations, a dissertation and continuous assessment, involving the submission of essays, projects and case studies. Their main function is not to achieve a means of overall assessment, but to enable students to obtain feedback on their performance and to provide information on specific aspects of the subject under discussion.

The MBA course work is taught by highly qualified faculty, who enrich the learning process by providing a balance of theory and application. Finally, a personal tutor will be allocated to each MBA student, to whom any difficulties that may arise in relation to the course may be addressed.
