Whether you choose the Full-time MBA or the Full-time MBA with Exchange, you will benefit from the Three Pillars and our student-focused experience.

Teaching and Learning 2022/23

Based on current government guidelines, for the academic year 2022/23 we are planning for all students to be on campus.

Our programme enhances your career potential by giving you a clear focus on the role of the highly sought strategic leader and helps you to progress with confidence. In order to achieve this our MBA is built on three pillars:

Semester 1

Participants in the MBA and the MBA with Exchange begin Semester 1 in the same classroom, exploring the same content, a rich mix of business, strategy, and leadership studies that provide a holistic view of an organisation and your place in it.

Both programmes also offer resources and personalised support as you develop your Career Strategy and embark on Professional Development to improve your soft skills.

Semester 2

Full-time MBA

You will be studying from a diverse list of electives offered in Edinburgh as you focus on topics uniquely relevant to you and your career path.

With exchange

You will spend 10 to 12 weeks abroad, undertaking coursework with one of our international partners and exploring international business in an immersive context.
