Dr Sarah Shaw: So my name is Dr. Sarah Shaw. I'm a senior lecturer and researcher at Hull University Business School.

It will act as a catalyst and a springboard for you and your career. Be prepared to be stretched. We're going to take you on a transformational leadership journey. We will challenge you to look at different problem solving scenarios, crisis management as this is key to be able to manage in the new world, we need new ways for a new world. You're going to listen and hear from high profile industry speakers as well as our outstanding academics and their cutting edge research.
We recognize that many of you have not been in education for a long time and have been actually working in industry. So we spend a lot of time with you at the beginning of the programme, and during the programme to make sure that you understand how to write academically. So that by the end of the program you really are proficient in terms of conducting and producing an excellent piece of academic work that's grounded in the real world. But you're also able to conduct research and market research and business research effectively as well in your own organisation.
Well, this is a new MBA for a new world. So a seismic change is occurring in the way that we live and work. And as such, we have designed a new MBA programme, which has a really clear vision, and that is about shaping, inspiring and equipping the new generation of responsible leaders to handle disruption and manage the challenges in a digitally transformed and net zero and socially responsible world.
One of the key skills as well that we do tackle on the MBA programme that we are world experts in is systems thinking, and we use systems thinking throughout the program to tackle complexity. And it helps organizations and individuals to understand how to cut through the complexity and embrace disruption.
So our Global MBA online gives you the ultimate flexibility to study for an MBA programme. We have multiple entry points throughout the year to start the program. You've also got an opportunity to be part of a truly global MBA network. So this really plays to the kind of power of the network and inclusivity and diversity. You're going to learn from peers, from different countries about how they manage problems in different country contexts. So how we do something in India might not be how we do something in America. And this is really important. This is a truly global MBA.
