The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is delighted to announce that six £1,000 bursaries are available for RIBA members wishing to undertake the RIBA Architectural and Construction MBA at the Bradford University School of Management.
Harry Rich, RIBA Chief Executive said:
'I am delighted that the RIBA is offering six bursaries to help RIBA members who want to undertake the RIBA Architectural and Construction MBA. The course offers architects a chance to develop an additional skill set, one that will provide a solid foundation in business administration from which the economic and creative potential of design and construction projects can be realised.'
The MBA features modules on topics identified by the RIBA to connect building utility and creative flair within a business context. RIBA modules sit alongside those that make up the AMBA and EQUIS accredited Bradford MBA. When combined these elements will provide architects and those in construction with a solid foundation in business administration from which the economic and creative potential of design and construction projects can be realised.
The MBA has been awarded Advanced CPD status by the RIBA.
Further information for applicants is available at www.architecture.com/mba or www.brad.ac.uk/management/ribamba.
The closing date for bursary applications is Friday 2 March 2012. The recipients of the bursaries will be contacted by Monday 19 March 2012.
