Summary

Our MBA Executive Retail Management (Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship Route) allows you to invest in your leadership team by combining university education, work-based learning and ongoing professional development. While working as a valuable part of your team, your apprentices can prepare for a career at senior management level and develop the skills required to tackle complex, strategic business challenges in one of the largest economic sectors.

The programme specifically seeks to develop the future leaders of retail organisations through developing their critical knowledge of retail organisations, their management and the changing external contexts in which they operate. It’s designed to develop their knowledge and skills in strategic thinking appropriate for today’s retail environment and challenge their leadership skills and style.

Our MBA Executive Retail Management (Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship Route) is aimed at those with significant retail management experience. The course has been informed by employers and designed in collaboration with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to qualify as a Level 7 Apprenticeship under the Apprenticeship Levy guidelines. Study at the Institute of Management Greater Manchester complements learning in the workplace, supporting your apprentices as they learn to provide direction and vision, a clear sense of organisational purpose and drive strategic intent.

Your apprentices will spend 80% of their time at work and 20% at the Institute, usually on a day-release basis. Our expert staff will guide them as they learn to take into account retail market trends and environmental influences to identify longer-term opportunities and risks. We’ll support them to become inclusive leaders, with the skills to develop ethical, innovative and supportive cultures that deliver results. Our dedicated team will also help them grow into their position as a role model with responsibility for others holding senior positions and significant organisational budgets.

Our flexible programme recognises the wide range of retail environments and the specific challenges they pose. We’ll work with you to devise individual learning agreements for each of your apprentices, ensuring they fulfil the core and essential criteria of the Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship, as well as develop additional skills and knowledge valuable for your organisation. Throughout the course, we’ll guide them as they build a portfolio of evidence representing the projects and tasks they have completed while working as part of your team.

If you’re looking for postgraduate-level training in this subject area but don’t work for an employer who is offering apprenticeships, please please visit http://uob.ac/connectED for tailored support and advice regarding apprenticeships, or see the other MBA courses offered by the University of Bolton.
