We are commited to educating tomorrow's business leaders for tomorrow's markets. To achieve our mission we offer a portfolio of online MBAs and MSc programmes; full- and part-time MBA programmes on HWU campuses in Edinburgh, Dubai and Malaysia; and work with our network of learning partners to offer students classroom-based study options wherever they live.

We are currently embarking on a new strategy, in an increasingly competitive market, under the leadership and direction of the Board and Professor Heather McGregor, our newly appointed Executive Dean.
