Aaron & Partners looks to the future with University eMBA
4th July, 2016
Aaron & Partners has been a firm supporter of the Wrexham Glyndŵr University executive MBA (eMBA), since its inception in 2014, working closely with the North Wales Business School to develop a highly engaging and relevant law module that gives business owners and managers a useful overview of commercial, employment and property law.
This bespoke programme has seen local businesses collaborate with the university directly to create a highly tailored curriculum suitable for individuals from all sectors and businesses.
Students are able to choose from a variety of modules on specific topics such as corporate finance, brand power and supply chain advantage, aimed at improving individuals’ professional skill set, including the legal module which is designed to provide practical knowledge of key legislation that affects their businesses.
Heavily involved with Wrexham Glyndŵr’s eMBA qualification from the beginning, Aaron & Partners specialist in professional practices, Mark Briegal, says “the inclusive and flexible nature of this qualification allows students the ability to control and tailor their own learning and has delivered success for local businesses and Wrexham Glyndŵr University alike”.
“Through contributing to the design of the legal module itself as well as being one of the programme’s tutors, I can really see the benefit of the eMBA within both practical and educational environments – it’s a win/win for all involved! I’m excited to see how the qualification will grow and develop in the coming years to cater for even more students.
The aim of the legal module is not to make the students into lawyers, but rather to give them an overview of the key legal issues they will come across in business, to help them spot potential legal issues before they arise and to enable them to have sensible conversations with their legal advisors.”.
Through offering this form of high quality legal education, Wrexham Glyndŵr University and Aaron & Partners are at the forefront of professional learning in the North West. The collaborative efforts of Wrexham Glyndŵr and local businesses have boosted opportunities for professionals within the area, with this type of reciprocal relationship boosting businesses’ commitment to education and communities, including start-ups.
