You will need to complete the following modules spread out during the course of your study:


Final Thesis

Candidates are required to submit a capstone project on an approved topic long about 50 pages. The thesis should offer an original application of knowledge in the area of management and should demonstrate the candidate’s ability to integrate rigorous academic analysis with practical real-world relevance and application within topics covered by this course.

Possible forms

The chosen subject should be viewed in light of future career plans. Students have been offered positions as a direct result of their MBA Capstone project. The Capstone project can take many forms:

A tip for you

A very popular option amongst students is to work with an organisation on a project that will add value to its business. The output is a substantial report combining the student’s experience and MBA knowledge to provide research, analysis and recommendations. The supervisor works with students to facilitate engagement.

Business Simulations

Every program we offer includes business simulations to test and train students’ business thinking and decision-making skills. We use a fun online game that can be played once or twice a day for ten minutes. There is no problem with skipping or not playing for long periods of time (unless, for example, your company has issued bonds that require daily attention to manage repayments). The online game is built on an economic model that simulates real-world behavior, from elements like wages or prices to entire supply chains. You can play this game without enrolling in the program, just go to and start playing. Each student is then expected to write a short paper on the company’s strategy and submit company documents to show personal accomplishments.

Vocational training or a Negotiations course?

Some students prefer to have a recognized professional training in their Master’s program, as it is expected of them in the local job market. We can offer such an elective to these students. Such a course should be at least 80 hours in length and usually involves some form of specialized training with another company. It is up to the study department to decide if we will accept such a certificate of training (or other document proving such an activity) as an Approved Pass (AP, which appears on the diploma supplement or transcript instead of a typical evaluation). Students who do not need to have professional training on their transcript will take the Negotiations course.
