How is the programme delivered?

Each student will receive all the study materials they need, including comprehensive course texts and access to interactive course websites. You will benefit from 48 hours of tutored interaction for each core course and a large amount of your time will be spent studying independently (approximately 200 hours per course).

For all seven core courses there are:

• two two-day seminars (Saturday and Sunday) led by an Edinburgh Business School faculty member from the UK or Malaysia that includes simulations, case studies and involves class discussions and
• a two-day revision session (Saturday and Sunday) to prepare you for your exam.

These seminars allow a dynamic combination of students all with diverse experiences, backgrounds and cultures to share and exchange knowledge in a rich learning environment. The programme is supported by a full-time, dedicated team. 

When can you start

The part-time MBA programme starts in September and January each year.

We recommend that you submit your application at least two months before the start date. This will allow time for processing, visa applications and pre-attendance study. While we try our best to accommodate all prospective students, we can't guarantee that any applications received less than two months before the start date will be processed in time.
