Ashridge Masters in Management MBA Program Structure

The Ashridge Masters in Management program is an online program for managers and professionals. Students in this program will be graded on class assignments and a project that they complete, instead of tests. The assignments all pertain to a student’s particular job, and are meant to allow students to take their new knowledge and use it right away within their company.


The course is taught in three stages. This gives participants the opportunity to stop their degree at the end of any stage 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 the Master’s in Management degree.
