MBA Master of Business Administration

Home - British Academy in Lebanon - Programmes - Postgraduate Level - MBA Master of Business Administration


The MBA is an internationally recognised and respected qualification for managers. Applicants are from both the public and private sectors. 

The teaching programme is aimed at those who are looking to develop their careers and at 'high flyers' that need an understanding of all the major functions of business providing generalist knowledge for prospective leaders. 

In addition to enhancing successful students' career prospects, the course aims to encourage independent and creative thinkers. This is done by following the UK Quality Assurance Agency guidelines in giving students a 'strong practical and professional orientation' differentiating it from other Masters programmes.

All students complete seven taught modules together with a final dissertation/project.​

Final Module (40 credits):
The final, 40 credit project is a double module, completed by students after they have completed all taught modules. Whether an academic piece of research or an investigation into the launching of a business; it is designed to be an intellectually challenging piece of individual management research. It will equip successful students with the knowledge, capabilities and competences required of today's managers, in a world in which the ability to research new information is increasingly important.


The assessment strategy covers a wide spectrum of approaches. Each module has its own aims, objectives, learning outcomes and methods of delivery and assessment. Assessments may therefore take the form of assessed written papers/essays/reports, oral presentations, group and individual research projects, posters, reflective papers which may involve compiling scrapbooks, case studies as well as open/closed book formal examinations.

Preparation and support is available for assessment through various activities designed by module leaders, personal tutors and library.​

The submission points for assessments are phased throughout the year to manage students' workload with specific dates made available to students at the beginning of each academic year.

Employability & Careers

Career events, the Student Career Office and the Alumni allow students opportunities to further their connections and networking activities. This platform is designed with the following aims:

  • Work-study opportunities: Students are offered the opportunity to be working within the MUBS while pursuing their MBA; which in turn exposes them to multiple career development opportunities.
  • Social Interactions, Social Networking and Academic Sharing: Provide a secure social network and community for instructors, students, and potential employers.
  • Personal Development Plans: Personal Development Plans (PDP) facilitate the structure necessary for students to reflect upon individual learning, performance, and achievement, and map personal, educational, and career development.

The Alumni office has also been developing networks, for example through social media such as Linked In. The success of these networks has been evidenced by the amount of former students currently in contact with the university about their employment, allowing current and former students to form links, and network.
