The Edinburgh MBA enhances your career potential by delivering a unique and powerful set of insights, tools and skills to prepare you for strategic leadership in a rapidly changing world.

The Edinburgh MBA

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


Full-time MBA

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 (with International Exchange)

Students will take the same core courses as the standard MBA but will also get to spend 2-3 months abroad as part of an exchange with one of our University partners.


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.

MBA Scholarships

We offer a large number of scholarships ranging from £5,000 - £20,000, rewarding offer-holders for their academic work, business experience and leadership.
