The Edinburgh MBA, which includes the Full-time and Executive MBA, encompasses the School's unique approach to our flagship programme in preparing you for a role as a strategic leader of your business sector.
Our distinctive approach
The business world is changing rapidly and this requires a new approach to leadership. Our MBA is designed to prepare business managers for the new global challenges ahead, by focusing on new ways of thinking and developing your personal and leadership capabilities.
World class faculty
Our faculty include international academics at the forefront of their field as well as experienced business practitioners. Complementing our faculty, we also invite senior directors from industry and the professions to lead discussion on the very latest business practice and issues.
Collaboration with business
Collaboration with business lies at the heart of the School's approach to teaching and learning. We work with the corporate sector for many reasons: to bring you the latest insights, to enable you to learn through tackling real business problems and to expand your network and connections for the benefit of your career.
An MBA is usually undertaken as a means to progress your career. For some, the objective is to prepare for a step-change into a more senior leadership role. For others, the motivation is to switch sectors or to prepare for establishing their own business. On the Edinburgh MBA, we will work closely with you to understand your career objectives and to help facilitate your next move.
Joining a University for postgraduate study should not only be about academic study. You will need time to build relationships with colleagues and time to experience the city and the cultural heritage of Scotland.

The University of Edinburgh Business School is one of the most respected in the world. Our programmes are among the most highly sought after. Our reputation is given further substance by our accreditation from a wide range of leading business education organisations and professional bodies.

MBA support team
