EMBA: Executive Mastery of Business Administration on

Leadership & Management (EMBA)

An international Graduate-level Programme designed to develop advanced business management, leadership and administration skills, knowledge and understanding for top-level careers (and entry on to the Doctorate DBA / PhD Programme).

This is a flexible, expertly produced and designed programme, with study materials and content written, prepared and produced by world-leading experts and publishers. 

The first two Study Years/Semesters provide a wide-ranging practical-oriented view of the business and commercial environment, covering important subjects with a focus on management and business application.  As part of the Programme a thesis/project is prepared, incorporating both theoretical and practical aspects of the project topic, and incorporating study of key MBA management models.

The third/final Study Year/Semester focuses on strategic management and policy, international economics, and business finance - subjects needed by and appropriate for current or future senior managers, executives or company/department leaders; the Programme finishes with study and professional learning of the core business management specialisations. 

The professional syllabus, based on expertly designed and produced study materials and content, is also externally validated and endorsed by ILM City & Guilds.  CIC is approved to deliver the Programme in Britain and internationally, and holds international accreditation.

Holders of a CIC EMBA may also apply for a 'Double Award' University of America MBA degree; ask CIC for details or go to the 'Double Awards' BBA & MBA degrees section of the website. 


Note: Up until August 2017 this Programme was known as the Advanced Mastery of Business Administration (AMBA) Programme, but based on feed-back was re-named to reflect the wide, professional and interesting executive and graduate degree-level content of the Programme; however, applicants can still register for the Programme under that title, and gain the final award in that title.  The Programme may also be studied under - and an award issued - the title of Advanced Mastery of Business Management & Administration (AMBMA) to reflect in particular the management content and focus of the programme.  In either case, the Programme content and requirements are identical, but the title is variable to meet the specific needs and preferences of men and women in the different countries and regions of the world in which they live and work.
