What is distinctive about the Chichester MBA?
In a world that is undergoing radical change in nearly every walk of life solving problems, working on new opportunities, anticipating and combating threats, seeking practical improvements becomes daily life. This is the foundation of the MBA; built upon throughout the programme culminating in a practical consultancy project on a subject that matters.
This part-time MBA programme combines experiential workplace learning along with theoretical and practical input to develop your knowledge, skills and behaviours as outlined in the standards. The purpose is to enhance your management capability and overall performance of your organisation.
Much of the learning and the assignment in the MBA will be in the form of projects, mainly centered around work of the students – Action Learning Pedagogy. It is important to draw a picture of what these might look like, appreciating that clarity will only fully come in the conversations when you are planning these out with the Faculty and work colleagues. Learning is better achieved in smaller clearly defined project work where students can explore inter-connected themes at play with, for example, strategy, leadership culture etc.
Module Description for better understanding of the Uniqueness of Chichester MBA
- Organisational Impact: An Operational Perspective
- Developing People and Team: Operational Perspective
- Understanding Self and Our Wider Impact: An Operational Perspective
- Organisational Impact: A Wider Strategic Perspective
This module focuses on the learning that comes from wider strategic considerations and impact. The learning sessions will equip you with knowledge and confidence to become involved in strategy work and conversations. It is from this that you will be able to consider your learning within the contexts of what counts for knowledge in your professional field and more widely in academia. And from this to further develop your practice and knowledge.
- Developing People and Team: Strategic Perspective
Achieving longer-term impact requires the active participation and support of people, not just in one’s team, but also increasingly in the organisation at large, the sector and the wider environment. In these cases leadership is more defined by influence, encouragement and understanding the needs and impact of stakeholders. Here we are often talking about the leadership of loosely interconnected fields of people, sometimes referred to as systems, where impact can become amplified for good or ill. Developing these abilities in an uncertain and interconnected world is an increasingly important leadership ability.
- Understanding Self and Our Wider Impact: The Strategic View
Creating impact more strategically over the wider organisation or a system takes a further understanding of self. This is particularly the case as one moves from managerial control of direct reports to influencing people, teams and even organisations. In this sense, a further reflexive turn is important as one engages in new more strategic ways of working.
- Consultancy and Business Solutions: Proposal Development
The module enables the participants to work with a client and to develop a consultancy proposal of work to address an organisational problem or opportunity. Upon successful completion, it will hold up to scrutiny and will offer clarity as to work and the resources needed to meet clear aims and objectives. In this sense this is not just about the development of a form of words that comprises a proposal, but it is about the development of effective working relationships.
- Consultancy and Business Solutions: Consultancy Project
The module focuses on the implementation of a consultancy project that has been agreed with the client in module Consultancy and business solutions: proposal development (MBA707) which seeks to address a real and practical opportunity or problem.

- Work out the most appropriate way to communicate and engage with people (including the client) in both written and oral forms.
- Decide what forms of insights will be required and how these are to be obtained in light of the resources available and the aims and objectives of the project.
- Effectively analyse the insights and subject matter using the tools selected and adapting approaches in the face of the emerging evidence.
- Appropriately manage the governance of the project to meet stakeholder expectations and ethics.
- Manage risks and issues through the project.
- To synthesise the data and develop a coherent and pragmatic case that the client can use as a basis for action.
