Our online PG diploma programme covers key management disciplines through six courses. This must include one core course, choosing from: Delivering Successful Projects, Economics for Business, Financial Decision Making, Leadership, Theory and Practice and Strategic Marketing. See a full list of courses here.
Our course structure allows you to gain qualifications as you progress. On completing your first three courses, you will gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration. A further three courses will earn you a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration.
Students are drawn to the PG Dip by its academic rigour, its intellectual challenge and its ability to greatly enhance student career prospects. They’re also drawn by its sheer flexibility. You can study the subjects you want, in the order you wish, and begin and end whenever you choose.
You must pass the six courses to complete the postgraduate diploma; there's a three-hour exam for each course.
There is also an option to study the six core courses of our online MBA programme, which on completion would award you with a Postgrad Diploma. You would then have the option to complete the three more courses at a later date, to be awarded a full MBA.
You may be entitled to exemptions from core and elective courses on our masters programmes.
From faculty message boards, past papers and online self tests to peer-to-peer networks and dedicated advisors.
We offer local examinations to all our students. Each course is assessed by a one three-hour examination. You can sit your exams in March, June, August and December.
You can study course-by-course and pay as you learn, or sign up for two or three courses at once. Our fees are flexible.
Our students have lots to say about studying, the Edinburgh Business School experience and life in general.

We recommend starting with People, Work and Organisations to help students develop a detailed appreciation of factors influencing how people behave at work and how these link to performance.
If you complete six core courses for your Postgrad Dip then completing an additional core course and two elective courses after your diploma will earn you an MBA.
