Executive MBA Apprenticeship Programme Launched

Tue, 23 February, 2021

The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) has partnered with De Montfort University’s Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) to deliver an Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Apprenticeship programme.

The EMBA has been created to suit individuals who are seeking a diverse and novel programme to enable career progression into senior management roles while also improving strategic thinking and developing the analytical and critical thinking skills necessary to solve problems and lead complex change.

The programme is ideal for TWI Industrial Member companies who wish to advance the skills and expertise of their staff and feeds into LCBS’ mission to ‘go beyond business as usual.’

With a focus on ethics, responsibility, sustainability and innovation as well as research, teaching and engagement challenges, the two-year part-time course consists of six modules with a variety of assessment methods offered to candidates.

The EMBA will help develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours associated with senior leaders as well as offering a Level 7 Strategic Management and Leadership Practice qualification from the Chartered Management Institute.

Executive coaching during the course will prepare candidates for senior leadership, while dynamic learning methods such as project-based knowledge, simulations / gamification, case studies and discussion based learning will provide genuine workplace skills.

Applicants should have three years’ professional experience as well as an undergraduate degree (or equivalent overseas qualification) in any subject with a minimum pass of 2:2. Professional qualifications deemed to be of equivalent standing will also be considered on an individual basis.
