This Sheffield Hallam MBA, co-delivered with the Co-operative College (Manchester, UK) and Co-operative Management Education Programme at Sobey School for Business (Halifax, Canada), is designed to enhance your leadership capability. The course focus is on providing you with support to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and delivers the necessary development to enable you to advance your career. This personal development is supported by practical experience and real world academic learning. Together this ensures that you have the skills, knowledge and experience that modern organisations seek from their leaders.

Completing the Executive MBA enhances your employability by demonstrating to organisations your potential for leadership and ability to deliver solutions to complex operational issues. On specialist modules, we connect you to staff and students studying at the Co-operative College (Manchester, England), the Co-operative Management Education Programme in Halifax (Canada) and social entrepreneurs coached by Social Enterprise International Ltd.

The Sheffield Hallam Executive MBA offers a range of modules that will extend your current knowledge of social entrepreneurship and responsible management theory, including functional areas, people, processes and cooperative business strategy. In order to help you incorporate your learning with your career we streamline the module delivery into study blocks and distance learning activities , and the portfolio style assessments allows you to work related issues as part of your assessment for the programme.

**You learn through**
- Completing a consultancy project to investigate an issue at your own organisation

- Psychometric testing to understand more about your leadership styles

- In-class discussions and tutor-led input

**Applied learning**
Work-based assignments

The periods between each module enable you to try out what you have learned and to give your organisation the benefits of your developing skills. For that reason, each module is followed by a work-focused portfolio assignment, where you apply and evaluate the theories you have learnt. Your assessments will cover all areas of enterprise from global human resource management to strategy and from digital organisation to business operations. We also recognise the importance of financial fluency for modern social enterprise leaders and finance is therefore embedded across all modules. For those who do not wish to use their organisation as the basis of their study, we can also suggest alternative assignment options.

**Networking opportunities**

When you study an Executive MBA at Sheffield Hallam University you join a learning community of managers and leaders from across a range of professions and industry backgrounds. This provides you with excellent networking opportunities and you can benefit from seeing different perspectives and solutions to managerial challenges. In addition, on specialist modules, we connect you to staff and students studying at the Co-operative College (Manchester, England), the Co-operative Management Education Programme in Halifax (Canada) and social entrepreneurs coached by Social Enterprise International Ltd. This assists your professional networking efforts and increases your employment opportunities.
