Professor Palastanga with MCC MBA Graduates

The University of Wales is pleased to congratulate one of its collaborative centres, The Magna Carta College (MCC), on having held its first ever graduation ceremony.

The first cohort of the college’s MBA graduates recently celebrated their success at the grand Oxford University Examination Rooms. Also attending the ceremony was the University of Wales’s Pro Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nigel Palastanga.

Combining the efforts of Oxford, London and Birmingham University academics, the MCC was established in 2007 by Professor David Faulkner as a private college offering the Oxford lifestyle and facilities for those wishing to pursue a degree in Management or Law. Professor Faulkner has taught at Oxford University, Royal Holloway, University of London, Cranfield, Cambridge and the Open University.

The professors and lecturers delivering the courses for the college all have distinguished backgrounds. The MCC has an eminent faculty drawn from Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.

MCC is located in Oxford. Students can choose to live in Oxford with its cultural and lively student life style, or in the quiet and beautiful surrounding English villages. Lectures are delivered in Oxford University lecture theatres, students study in the world famous Bodleian Library and are invited to join the Oxford Union.

The University of Wales has been validating the MCC’s MBA scheme since 2007.
