About our courses
We are a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Centre with extensive links with professional bodies such as the Institute of Directors (IoD) and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS).
We work closely with employers and professional bodies to ensure that our courses are responsive to the needs of industry. We have been a Centre for the Institute of Directors (IoD) Director Development Programmes for some 20 years, with one of the highest pass rates for the IoD - Certificate examination in 2012.
A number of our courses are accredited by professional bodies. This includes our MBA course which is accredited via a number of additional awards by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and has been delivered successfully at Leeds Business School since 1991. Our MSc Supply Chain Management and Logistics is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Studies, one of only a small number of universities to have this dual accreditation. We also place emphasis on applied learning using consultancy projects across various programmes such as the MBA to enable you to increase your experience of working with business.
My MBA allowed me to think more strategically and introduced me to many useful management tools. It also helped me to think about which parts of business school learning actually pertain to SMEs. Financial Management helped me through our MBO. Being an engineer, the soft side of strategic thinking was particularly useful to me.Tony Snowden, Managing Director of FTL Technology, Executive MBA
