Timeframe

A key feature of the IMI Master of Business (MoB) Framework is its flexible timeframe, which allows you to tailor your participation around work/life demands. Whereas each of the three steps takes approximately six months to complete, you have a five year window within which to complete all three steps and attain the Masters. Therefore, depending on your preference, you can complete the taught element of the IMI MoB Framework in as little as 18 months. You must complete all elements of the IMI MoB Framework within five years.

The MoB philosophy

Unlike traditional MBAs and Business Masters, the IMI Masters of Business Framework is driven by an intensely practical, action learning philosophy. Throughout the programme, classroom learning is applied to real-life business challenges via exercises, group work, case studies and projects that centre on both your day-to-day work and the challenges currently facing your organisation. Both you and your organisation will derive genuine real-world benefits from your participation.
