Warwick Business School is launching a new version of its online MBA that will be based out of its WBS London base at The Shard.
The school’s Distance Learning MBA is ranked second in the world and first in the UK by the Financial Times. As part of the degree, elements are taken face-to-face in two ‘Warwick Weeks’.
Students will now have the option of taking these weeks of networking, lectures, group work, activities and presentations at The Shard, as well as having the option of taking a module face-to-face.
The first intake for the Distance Learning MBA (London) will be in June, with applications now open.
‘The school’s Distance Learning MBA is ranked second in the world and first in the UK by the Financial Times.’
John Colley, Associate Dean for the MBA, said: “Running the Distance Learning MBA out of The Shard in London opens up opportunities for students across the globe to take one of the best online MBA courses in the world.
“We have more than 30 years’ experience of teaching the Distance Learning MBA, and basing it in London will give international students a wider array of flying options with five major airports around the capital.
“It will also mean we can take the students to some of the top businesses in the world based in the heart of the world’s financial capital.”
The Distance Learning MBA (London) lasts two to four years, though there is flexibility to take longer if needed. It combines online lectures, tailor-made multimedia study materials, the highly-interactive my.wbs platform, and WBSLive (a virtual classroom) for eight required modules, four elective modules and a consultancy project .
The bespoke my.wbs platform allows students to engage in lectures in real time, test their knowledge, watch archived sessions, access teaching materials, connect with other students, participate in global syndicate groups and speak directly to lecturers and the programme team.
