The University of Wolverhampton has launched seven fully-online Master’s courses in business and psychology, with a specific focus on developing progressive, compassionate and ethical professionals and leaders.
Included in the new range of online courses, the University has launched four online Master of Business Administration (MBA) courses; MBA, MBA Finance, MBA Entrepreneurship and MBA Psychology. These programmes have been designed to develop managers with a deeper understanding of human behaviour and team dynamics; modern people leaders who can inspire, motivate and embed a culture of wellbeing and high-performance.
Three psychology Master’s courses have also been launched; two of which will be accredited by the British Psychological Society and will provide a route to chartered psychologist status. The new psychology courses are: MSc Psychology, MSc Organisational and Business Psychology, and MSc Psychology of Mental Health and Wellbeing.
Tim Steele, Pro-Vice Chancellor International at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “As a university, we have a proud history of championing innovation, diversity and universal opportunity.
“These online Master’s degrees leverage the power of technology to expand access to high quality postgraduate education to an audience of learners based all over the world, representing an important and exciting milestone in our growth as a global institution.
“As the importance of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and in wider society is increasingly well understood, today’s employers increasingly expect their leaders to be transformational rather than transactional and require their employees to have excellent soft and technical skill sets.
“Our goal is to equip our students with genuinely career-defining capabilities that will set them apart and provide them with a foundation for career success.”
These fully online courses, which have been designed and developed with Higher Education Partnerships (HEP), have a flexible design with six entry points, ensuring that they can be accessed from anywhere in the world and studied on demand, around work and family commitments.
Students will collaborate with tutors and fellow learners in a sophisticated online learning environment, providing opportunities to grow professional networks with contacts from all over the world.
Professor Alex Forsythe, Institutional Lead for Online Learning, said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of our first suite of fully online Master’s degrees, designed and developed with HEP.
“The successful launch of four MBA and three psychology programmes, with further computing science programmes to follow in June, in the face of the challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, is testimony to the creativity, energy, and values of our Higher Education Partnership and University of Wolverhampton teams.
“Our Master’s programmes are developed in collaboration with national and international governing bodies, students, national and international subject experts and employers.
“Our student learning journeys are based on the most up-to-date knowledge of how students successfully learn, connect and thrive. Thus ensuring that our graduates will engage with their communities, both locally and globally, become knowledge creators and take their place in leading through the digital economies of the future.”
