Membership and accreditation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI)

You’ll benefit from automatic membership with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.

Your membership will give you access to resources including career development, industry mentoring, curriculum enrichment and more.

When you graduate, you will be eligible for a CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership (subject to completion of all mapped modules). This qualification means you are widely recognised by employers as a manager with the ability to translate organisational strategy into effective performance.

“My highlight of studying at Sussex was the combination of having some truly inspiring lecturers and professors guiding me, as well as meeting an array of diverse and talented fellow students. The connections I have made throughout this MBA will stay with me for life”

Flexible study options

You can study the MBA either part-time or full-time. Our full-time MBA is a one-year programme and is ideal if you can take a year out from your job to focus on your studies. Our part-time MBA is delivered over two years so you can fit your studies around your work and apply what you learn directly to your day job.

Classes are taught on Fridays and Saturdays helping you fit everything in more easily.
