The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is in collaboration with Aston Business School to provide an MBA degree tailored to manufacturing.
The Management of Manufacturing MBA degree apprenticeship is delivered over two years, helping learners accommodate full-time work and personal responsibilities while successfully completing the qualification.
The programme can be funded via the apprenticeship levy, which means there are no fees for the learner. It is also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute, with membership included during, and for a year after, the programme.
The Level 7 apprenticeship merges practical elements of industrial experience with academic theory and strategic thinking to empower learners to boost productivity throughout production lines and business processes.
The qualification is delivered through a combination of remote and face-to-face learning. This gives learners the flexibility to study and progress within their existing day-to-day work and home lives, while also providing the rich experience of learning on-campus in a face-to-face environment with peers and learning academics.
The MBA programme can help to increase apprentices’ lifetime earning potential by up to three times, accelerating their career and supporting them to become more valued experts in their organisations. Like all apprenticeships, it also carries the added bonus of enabling learners to earn while they learn.
