University of Sunderland MBA


What do you think of this university's MBA (Top-Up) program ?

They can accept graduates with experience with a postgrad diploma in management or business administration like the BTEC.

What is BTEC diploma in management, business administration anyway ?

Does this MBA qualifies for HTEC MBA program ?

know about 20 people already at Sunderland doing various masters including MBA.

Advice: all you can earn is a british mba and that is it for a decent money and that is ALL it is.

I dont wanna say too much but the quality is nothing of a MBA and the academic rigour is nothing like a University.

BTEC is like trainning certificate, I earnred one with a month work, because i already have a degree and the company still paid more the BTEC as a training package.

You can go to MBA at Cardiff uni which is think may be cheap. Or go for master at a higher ranked university. Manchester, Lancaster, Warwick, Glasgow, Durham, Sheffield. Else aim for Newcastle, Northumbria, Durham and London Metropolitant

Sunderland is not a nice place either. it is full of racists, bigots, a depleted industrial area with people living on welfare and council houses.

Wow, that is insightful indeed. I won't be attending on campus.So i won't be worrying too much about living conditions and racism. Anything is better than the gutters from where I am; but to be able to get a MBA degree from a public university and (not a diploma mill) is all I asked for....

what do you mean by not attending the campus?

If you want a cheap degree go for a college, you will get a certificate from a recognized university with less fees.

If you want to be in the UK try this
http://www.lsclondon.co.uk/MBA.htm

else go for a college in singpore, china, malaysia. they do the same thing, a certificate with some teaching and the lifestyle is lively as well.

I started my MBA back in 1995-6. Completed a few units. then recently i completed both a postgraduate diploma in Marketing and a Master in Information technology. The combination =added to my previous experience was adequate to get exempted.

I have now completed all the academic requirements for this MBA degree. the dissertation wasn't easy. I am most satisfied though. Although I am a distance MBA student, I had an opportunity to travel to this campus and visit the faculty.

I am now pretty much an expert in Value Innovation.

Not only am I now MBA graduate, I had received official training in Blue Ocean Strategy when I was recommended by one of the professor to look at my dissertation basing on value innovation.

With some luck, I may even get a distinction grade for my MBA degree.

It'a awesome..

Just want to update some of you. I did receive a distinction for my dissertation and together with my other grades, I will be getting a final classification of Disctinction grade for this MBA.

I have now been enrolled at Lancaster University in a PhD program. The MBA DIssertation mode and some of the research modules were helpful.

Hi!
I'v been studying in this university for four years now. I am an MBA student who is trying to write the dissertation. The support I am receiving is amazing, altho is it really hard I'm learning a lot on the topic, and hoping to find a job related to the subject.
This four years has been very hard, but both Sunderland and the university are a quiet and nice place to be living in, both in terms of location and people. Here I have made some verey good friends I hope i will be in touch for a very long time.

No, Sunderland doesn't have any of the respected accreditations (http://www.find-mba.com/accreditations). Westminster does, and is much better.
