Build your career momentum by studying as you work and bring fresh insights into your workplace straight away. You will inevitably gain ideas and insights from staff and your fellow students, all of whom bring different experiences and global perspectives.

Build meaningful connections

Develop deep, life-long professional and personal networks in a cohort with constant interaction.

We have structured the Edinburgh online MBA so that we have two starting points for the programme each year. When you decide to join, you will be starting and finishing your learning journey with the same group of individuals. There are a mixture of approaches on the programme from social community building, some live tutorial sessions, and group project work.

Studying online shouldn't mean pursuing your learning journey in isolation. Our aim is for you to not only feel part of a community, but to feel part of a tight-knit family of ambitious professionals. This is at the core of our Edinburgh MBA experience, regardless of which MBA programme fits your circumstances best.

Global insights

Further your career and skills by learning from other participants on our MBA who will come from a wide range of industry sectors and different countries. This diversity enables the coming together of different ideas, life experiences, and cultural imperatives. Students will bring their individual strategic knowledge and management experience into the virtual classroom and online forums for an unparalleled peer-to-peer learning experience. The connections you make with individuals across the globe on the programme will inevitably last into the longer term and continue to be a great means of brainstorming and sharing insights.

Courses will be led by faculty who bring incisive knowledge and practical relevance to the classroom. Our faculty is diverse and international, and comes with a wealth of knowledge and insights. All are experienced teachers, researchers, and consultants in their respective fields.

People often talk about the division between the academic and the practical. Our MBA seeks to shave the divide between these two worlds to a razor's edge. When faculty come from industry, or consult or collaborate with industry for research and consultancy projects, the virtual classroom instruction derived from these interactions could not be more practical.
