Ashridge Masters in Management MBA Program Structure

The Ashridge Masters in Management Program is an online program for managers and professionals. The program is assessed by assignments and a project, which are all work-based. These work-based assignments allow you to immediately apply your learning to make a measurable impact to your daily work and increase your knowledge of your organization.


The course is taught in three stages. This gives participants the opportunity to stop their degree at the end of any intake and still receive a certificate or diploma. The stages build upon each other and the final stage draws completely on the skills and knowledge that are learned in the first two stages.

The first two stages lay the foundation for the final course and follow a specific module curriculum. Each stage focuses on people, processes, or perspectives. Under each module, there are specific management subjects taught.

The third stage is the Masters. This is the final stage in receiving your Master’s in Management degree.
