We offer our MBA on a part-time and full-time basis. Self-paced distance learning students also attend the two- and four-day seminars and revision sessions.
The MBA runs for one year, starting in September. Students will be based in Edinburgh, but will spend one term studying in Dubai. Our full-time MBA is equally relevant whether you’re starting a new business or looking to develop your entrepreneurial spirit within an organisation. You'll be supported by our leading British faculty, and be assigned your own business mentor who will guide you throughout your studies.
This part-time MBA programme is ideal if you would like to study for a prestigious MBA while continuing your full-time career. Over a period of two years, you'll attend intensive seminars in Edinburgh, held between Thursdays and Sundays. You will have the opportunity to enhance your learning through shared ideas and experiences with fellow students.
