You learn better when you’re in control

Study with us and you can choose exactly where you study, when you study and the speed at which you learn.

We give you the tools. You decide how best to use them. The result? A qualification that fits the way you live and the way you work.  Whether you work best in the comfort of your own home or in a classroom setting, we have created a programme that fits your lifestyle. Whichever way you choose to study, you’ll have the support of a world-leading Business School.

Self-paced online learning. Study to suit the way you live.

Life is a constant juggle of appointments, deadlines, family commitments and social engagements. So if you’ve thought about further study but wondered how it could fit into an already crowded schedule, then we have the answer.

At Edinburgh Business School, you can study for an MBA, MScDBA or PhD at your own pace. You can start the programme when you like and finish it when you like; you can even take a break and resume when you’re ready.

Study our MBA programme on campus, in the UK, Dubai and Malaysia

If you thrive in a group setting, then you’ll find the collegiate atmosphere of campus study offers all the stimulation your brain could need.

We have modern, welcoming campuses in three key global locations: UK, Dubai and Malaysia. You can study for your MBA part-time on campus in Edinburgh and Dubai, and part-time in Malaysia.  Each Heriot-Watt University campus presents dynamic opportunities for interaction with faculty and fellow students alike.

Learning Partners

This is the perfect blend of classroom and independent learning. When you study with one of our learning partners you benefit from specialist support, delivered at a local level.

Each partner offers a range of services, from tutored courses to classes for revision when you need it most. Each partner is rigorously assessed and regularly monitored.

Learning Partners

Life is rarely certain. So what happens if you need to change the way you study?

You might be changing jobs. You might be changing countries. You might simply fancy a change of scene. So what happens to your studies?

With Edinburgh Business School, you have the complete flexibility to alter the way in which you study. You can switch from home study to join us on one of our campuses. Or vice versa. You can switch to a learning partner institution or switch between learning partners.

Your learning remains the same, wherever you study. And if you need to take a break from your studies for a while, that’s not a problem either.
