What is the Buisness Degree Apprenticeship? 

You will study towards a BA/BSc Hons Chartered Manager at Hertfordshire University for 4 years, which MBDA will fully fund, and is also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute. You will be required to attend university one day a week and will work within MBDA on rotational palcements for the remaining four days. This way of studying allows you to earn an academic and nationally recognised qualification as well as gain hands on learning experience within a professional and friendly workplace.
