Richmond extends portfolio of Masters programmes with two new MBA specialisations

Offering wealth of opportunities for postgraduate study

Richmond Business School is going from strength to strength with the news that in addition  to the general MBA, two new MBA specialisations have been validated, MBA: Human Resource Management and MBA: Marketing, both of which will be joining the portfolio of postgraduate programmes from September this year.

All MBA students at Richmond will follow the same highly prestigious programme initially, gaining career-boosting skills in financial management, business economics, strategic management and implementing global marketing strategies.

For those students who wish to specialise in Human Resource Management, they can then pursue topics such as Leadership & Coaching or deepen their knowledge in other areas of Human Resource Management.  For those who have a leaning towards marketing, an exploration in Marketing and Ethics or Marketing in a Digital World is available.

Professor Adrian Wilkins, Dean of Richmond Business School, added, “These two MBA specialisations are a significant step for us, providing students with even more choice and enhancing our appeal. With its international orientation, strategic location and heritage in liberal arts education, Richmond Business School has so much to offer.”

Richmond Business School also provides a flexible approach to these specialisations, as students can begin the MBA and decide whether they wish to take either option after they have gained a feel for the programme.

Dr Carola Hieker, MBA programme leader at Richmond, said, “We’re delighted to extend our offering at Richmond Business School with the addition of these two specialisations.  Both Human Resource Management and Marketing have proved highly popular with our MBA students, particularly when we’ve invited guest speakers on both topics into the faculty to share their insight and experiences, it’s always incredibly inspiring for our students.  These options also provide an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their practical experience and increase their employability.”

As the only university in the UK that can award students both a UK and US degree, all MBA students at Richmond can study one programme and gain two degrees.

All of the University’s postgraduates are based at the Kensington campus, a rivalled location with major London landmarks on the doorstep, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Kensington Palace, as well being a top retail and night life destination.

Interested?  If you’re currently studying at Richmond, all of our alumni are eligible for an Alumni Masters Scholarship, with a 20 per cent reduction in tuition fees on Richmond MAs and MBAs (only MA Luxury Brand Management is excluded).

The University has also recently announced 25 full or partial scholarships for postgraduates, providing additional support for students.   The Sir Cyril Taylor International Postgraduate Scholarships are available to cover accommodation costs and/or tuition fees for students who have received an offer to study a postgraduate programme at Richmond starting in September 2019 or January 2020.

The MBA starts in September and January and is available full-time for one year or 18 month programme, part-time for the two year programme.
