The Edinburgh MBA is set to inspire and develop the next generation of strategic leaders. As the world continues to change, our MBA prepares you to change with it.

Teaching and Learning 2022/23

For the 2022/23 academic session we are teaching as normal. If the Scottish Government guidance around Covid-19 changes then teaching methods may be altered accordingly.

We offer a range of MBA programmes, all of which enhance your career potential by giving you a clear focus on the role of this highly sought-after strategic leader in today's ever more volatile and uncertain world.

Learn from world-class faculty who bring practical and research-led coursework into the classroom and will help you understand organisations holistically, think strategically, and manage effectively.

An integrated professional development programme will hone your soft skills for more effective communication, influence, and leadership. For those on our on-campus programmes, our cohort size allows for a certain level of customisation and the ability to build strong connections with cohort members. Meanwhile, those on our online programme benefit from a single international cohort community.
