An MBA qualification continues to be the flagship qualification for post-graduate business students seeking to increase subject knowledge, build a portfolio of management skills and enhance future career prospects in a competitive and increasingly global arena. The MBA suite consists of three routes (see above) all of which encompass three core topics, which provide the foundation for a successful business, namely strategy, finance and leadership. In addition there are optional routes which provide opportunities to select from and include transnational business practice to reflect global growth and development and environmental concerns which has increasing prominence in corporate reporting and business procedures. Other options include the relatively new subject of Asset Management which covers asset life cycle management and is a key function in planning and maintenance of a flourishing business. Risk is a vital concern when evaluating and making business decisions and is a further option. Finally the creative change and innovation option utilises a broad range of approaches which are used for business continuity, growth and relevance to the market place.
