UHI seek your views on the potential for a new Rural Masters in Business Administration

 
The University of the Highland & Islands is carrying out market research for a proposed Rural MBA programme which will combine modules in business administration with those on natural resource management in a flexible online learning format. 
 
If the course is developed, it will provide an opportunity for those with academic and/or industry experience to develop knowledge and skills related to managing land-based businesses in rural Scotland.  We expect the course to be of interest to estate owners/managers, individuals working with various land-based businesses, and members of community groups who are actively managing land or have an interest in doing so.
 
The proposed course has the following features: 
 
1. Unique opportunity to combine business management skill s with an in-depth understanding of land management approaches and issues in Scotland, with a focus on sustainable development.
 
2. An interdisciplinary course taught by specialists in business management, ecology/environment and sustainable rural development.
 
3. High level of flexibility, with learning taking place entirely online on a full-time or part-time basis - this allows study from any location alongside other commitments.
