for Managers and Executives 

Awarded by University of Northampton – UK 

Recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC) Sri Lanka.

The only MBA in Sri Lanka with a Focus on Strategy & Innovation



MBAs are amongst the most popular degrees in the world. The Harvard University established the first MBA programme in 1908. Since then, many thousand institutions & universities award MBAs. Amongst these are unscrupulous institutions which award bogus or fake MBAs or claim dubious ranking. A Google search could provide many insights into unaccredited MBAs which offer low cost Degree certificates & transcripts.

When embarking on a MBA, a prospective student must establish without a doubt the credentials of the awarding institution and its academic reputation. The esteem & admiration, recognition & respect for a qualification are derived from the awarding institution. The subject coverage, duration of study and depth in learning content are ingredients that make a difference between a respected MBA and an ordinary MBA.

Focused on Innovation & Strategy

Students will fulfill the coursework requirement of the Northampton MBA (120 Credits) by pursuing 6 modules of study focused on Innovation & Strategy.

The course work is totally focused on Strategy and Innovation to facilitate development of competencies required in senior management positions. Learning Strategy and Innovation is equally critical for individuals as well as for organisations. The survival and success of both depend on how they would differentiate from the rest. This learning at the Master’s level is the only programme of study available in Sri Lanka designed with an exclusive focus on Strategy and Innovation.

On completion of the 6 modules, students are entitled to receive the Pearson Assured Executive Diploma in Strategy and Innovation, (a Level 7 - Post Graduate Qualification as proof of successful completion of the coursework stage) which will enable the student to progress to Research Stage of the MBA.

6. Research Methods

One of the key responsibilities of strategic managers is to make decisions. Working in any organisation could involve making different decisions regarding major capital investment projects, business finance, new product development, mergers and acquisitions, business location and workforce planning. The one factor that is common to all these decisions is that there will be different alternatives which will be presented to the strategic manager for a decision to be made. In many cases, each alternative will be supported by different members of the executive management team who will present well-argued cases for their preferred solution, based on their role and experience as well as other available management information. Strategic managers must, therefore, develop a set of skills and a way of thinking that enables them to consider, review and evaluate the evidence presented to them, and to challenge strategic decisions with their own evidence-based knowledge and experience.

In this unit, learners will need to propose a unique research question related to an area of professional business practice that interests them and will contribute to their professional development. Learning includes understanding the principles of research methodology, preparation of a research proposal, presenting and interpreting research findings.
