The Edinburgh MBA

We aim to provide flexibility and variety with our MBA by offering three different variants:


Full-time MBA (12 months)

Build your capacity for incisive analysis, innovation and strategic leadership through the range of different courses and business disciplines. Participants may choose a specialisation in finance, strategy, entrepreneurship or sustainability.


Full-time MBA (16 months)

Students will get the opportunity to spend 4 months abroad, besides taking the same core courses as the 12 month programme. The international component includes an exchange with one of our University partners and an international internship.


Executive MBA (27 months)

This programme is specifically designed for working executives who prefer part-time study. The course is delivered in a modular format on Fridays and Saturdays, once a month. The taught part of the programme takes place over 21 months, followed by a Capstone Project.
