Course details

Our online (part-time) MBA (Criminal Justice) is ideally suited to individuals who intend to balance their personal and professional commitments and study while working. Designed to deliver accessible, creative and flexible postgraduate business and management education, it offers you choice in how, when and where you study, as well as the opportunity to pursue a specialism in criminal justice.

Our course content is tailored to the dynamic contemporary global business environment, focusing on developing skills in leadership and the application of conceptual management theories to current practice. You’ll acquire competencies in innovative and creative problem solving, critical thinking and strategic reasoning.

Although based in the UK, the course focuses on crime and justice issues that are internationally relevant. The Criminal Justice in Practice module will give you the skills to critically evaluate criminal justice processes and interventions, and navigate particular challenges in the running of criminal justice systems. International and Comparative Criminology will familiarise you with the challenges of analysing and responding to global crime, as well as equipping you to compare crime, justice and policy in different nations. 

This MBA is not focused on criminal investigation or procedure, so it requires no legal training or experience.
