The MBA finance allows students to extend their specialisation in Finance to enable a more comprehensive understanding of managing organisational financial requirements. You will develop knowledge and skills in both functional modules (Accounting & Finance, Strategic Management and Marketing) along with integrative, contemporary modules such as Sustainable Decisions & Organisations, Innovation Management, Entrepreneurship & Creativity. The syllabus is similar to that offered in Nottingham University Business School, UK. The programme is enhanced by integrating talented peers from different professional and cultural backgrounds with the guidance of faculty members from our campuses in Malaysia, UK, and China.

Global experience opportunity
The Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) Malaysia MBA programme organises international study tours for students every year. These study tours offer a unique and invaluable business and cultural programme, allowing students to gain direct experience of contemporary business and management issues.
The tours include visits to global companies such as Lenovo and Tencent, meetings with top executives as well as relevant universities for exposure to business engagement and business research apart from cultural excursions.
Study tours are usually organised in January each year, and the destinations focus on emerging markets. Past study tours have taken students to Shanghai, Ningbo, Beijing and Taiwan.
Students at NUBS Malaysia are also invited to participate in MBA study tours that are organised by NUBS UK, which include study tours to the United States, China and other parts of the world.
The study tour is an option available to full-time and part-time MBA students, as a separate activity from those covered by the programme's fees.
