Study by Distance Learning

The online MBA qualification will be the same as that studied on campus and is delivered through Moodle (Virtual Learning Environment) and the University of Wales Online Library. Additionally potential employers frequently recognise and value the commitment made by an individual studying by distance learning or online. Moreover studying an MBA by distance learning or online allows the individual to continue to apply their new found knowledge in the work place and to further develop their career during their studies.

Download brochureWhen you study through Magna Carta College we provide you with professionally developed MBA distance learning or online study materials. The MBA study materials have been developed to provide sequential learning with continual access to self assessment and task based progress measurement. On enrolment on the online MBA course, each individual is allocated a tutor for academic support who can be contacted by email, telephone and through Moodle. Each individual will also have access to a student support co-ordinator who will be there for administrative advice to make the MBA learning experience successful and enjoyable.
