“CIRCLE International staff provided me with lectures on three academic levels in the past nine years. They were always highly professional. Lectures were at a very high level, interesting and interactive. Having the opportunity to listen to these professors, like in the case of MBA programme from the University of Vitez, is always an asset.
About the Programme
Organisations are demanding leaders who thrive in a complex, cross-functional, and globally diverse environment. Our MBA prepares participants for leadership and transformational roles in business management, equipping them with the tools and strategies to understand, anticipate and adapt strategically to opportunities in global markets.
Whilst acknowledging the importance of share value to the modern business, our programme places equal focus on corporate responsibility and sustainability. We consider this broad-minded approach to be essential both for success and survival in the modern global economy.
How the Programme works
You work towards your MBA on a course-by-course basis. Each course is broken down into modules. The teaching of the modules is entirely online.
Upon completion of each module, you complete an assignment and submit it electronically to the appropriate professor for marking.
When you have achieved a pass in all of the modules you will produce a proposal document for your thesis.
Finally, you will produce your thesis, under the supervision of a professor who has been allocated to you.
The master’s thesis is one of your best opportunities to show what you have learned—and what you are capable of—to future employers.
The thesis offers many opportunities to network with corporate clients, alumni and of course, other like-minded MBA students from around the world.
It comprises a piece of original, independent research and demonstrates your skills in research, analysis and report writing.
Typically, we would expect a student to complete the MBA programme within 2 years studying Full Time and between 2 and 3 years if studying Part Time.
An undergraduate Bachelor degree (2:2 minimum) or international equivalent – any subject area.
Relevant work experience is an asset, but not essential.
