Training and Qualifications

The University of Bradford has a broad range of full and part-time accredited and unaccredited programmes developed to meet the needs of industry, from short courses to full honours degrees and postgraduate programmes.

These courses span the breadth of the University's expertise with all academic faculties offering employer-responsive programmes in one form or another.  Examples include foundation degrees for the health and social care sectors, engineering and public and voluntary organisations; and postgraduate courses for employees in mental health services, health service management, media production, automotive engineering, and community pharmacy.  Many of these courses have been developed in partnership with industry and or with sector skills councils and are available as short programmes as well as full awards.

The School of Management, one of Europe’s leading business schools, offers leadership and management development programmes for corporate clients both in the UK and overseas. This includes in-company MBAs, a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, as well as flexible short courses delivered on campus, in-company or online.

The Bradford MBA has been ranked Number 1 in the world for salary increase and Number 2 in the world for value for money. We are the only institution in Yorkshire approved by the NHS Leadership Academy to deliver our programme to NHS staff wishing to pursue an MBA.  Our Masters in Management currently ranks as one of the UK's Top 10 programmes..

We developed a new business degree for Morrisons. The company have funded student places on the degree which is helping them recruit new company managers.

"It enables us to gain people who we can mould into really good managers and for them, they can study and work at the same time and gain a recognised qualification." JULIAN BAILEY, MORRISONS
