Let me explain my background first.
I have been studying the Bradford online MBA for more than a year and have achieved 80 credits so far. In order to achieve MBA, I would have to complete 160 credits.
The issue in here is that my exam of Strategic Management (a core subject) will probably be fail, just awaiting the result...
To be honest, I didn't really have much time to study so because the progress is quite tight (3 months for 2 modules) especially that Corporate Finance was in the same semester that I have used a lot of time to complete the assignment.... I could clearly feel that Corporate Finance is the most trouble subject compared to the 80 credits I have achieved so far. However I am confident that I could pass so.
To come back to the subject, I will have a chance to retake Strategic Management in Oct anyhow and would have a 3 months (Jul - Oct) to only focus on this subject. But I'd like to ask what I should do if I fail again that I wouldn't be able to achieve MBA.
I will study 40 credits from Jan - Jun that shouldn't be an issue for me and will then be able to complete more than 120 credits that fufills the requirement for a postgraduate diploma.
I believe that a postgraduate diploma does help for another MBA application, but I don't think I will have energy to study all of the subjects again... Can other MBA (DL) be chosen with a few exemptions? I live in Asia, so only DL MBA could be considered.
Also is a postgraduate diploma useful in terms of career progression? Many thanks.
