As the world continues to change, our MBA, big enough for a diverse student body, and personal enough for one-to-one attention, prepares you to change with the world.

We currently plan to deliver a mix of in-person and digital teaching for the academic year starting in September 2021. We are monitoring government guidance on Covid-19 prevention measures and we will adjust our 2021/22 plans in response to any relevant changes. Based on current information we expect some physical distancing measures are very likely to still apply when the academic year starts in September 2021. We anticipate a further update on this in the Summer.

We offer two variants, an MBA and an MBA with International Exchange. Both offer 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. Also, our one-to-one support, including a personalised coaching programme, gives you the attention larger programmes cannot.
