Innovative method for graduate degree study
Ashridge’s Masters in Management allows you to balance work with graduate degree studies in a completely flexible way.  Since the curriculum resides online, you have complete control over when and how you study, which assessment you choose, what resources you use, and what work-based research you undertake.

Practical assignments linked to your work
There are no exams. Instead, you are assessed by work-based assignments and a final project. The assignments allow you to immediately apply your learning and make a measurable impact to your daily work, providing a tangible and immediate benefit to your employer.

Final consulting project
The programme culminates in a project. The subject could be an area of particular interest to you, a business need, or both. It will help to develop your knowledge and skills in a range of business functions and apply these in a practical setting.
