An important decision

Before applying for this course, please consider carefully the decision you are making. Undertaking an MBA requires considerable commitment from both a financial perspective and, more importantly, the time required to undertake your studies.

Although you will be studying this programme by distance education, don’t be mistaken into thinking it will be an “easy option”. The nature of any distance learning course requires you to adopt a disciplined and independent approach to your studies - you will need good time management skills and self motivation. You will be expected to interact regularly with your tutors and fellow students – especially when you are working in teams and you need to rely on each other. While there is a comprehensive network of support and assistance available to you, the ultimate responsibility for successfully completing your studies lies with you!
