These opportunities could now be yours. 

  • Our popular online MBA, Masters, DBA and PhD programmes, and on-campus MBA programmes in EdinburghDubai and Malaysia, have accelerated the careers of over 20,000 of our graduates.
  • Our online programmes are open to all, regardless of your experiences or your qualifications.
  • By studying online, you are given the opportunity and flexibility to earn your MBA, Masters, DBA or PhD from the comfort of your own home. You decide when, where and how you want to complete your studies. 

“I wanted a course which could be completed without being intrinsically linked to a specific learning schedule… I was very focussed on using any spare time on deployment or during the working week constructively so that there was no real requirement to impact on family time either at weekends or during leave periods”. Director General Nuclear MOD (Astute Programme Capability Manager), MBA Graduate, Stuart Keillor 

  • If you prefer to learn in a classroom setting, you can choose to study for our new Edinburgh & Dubai MBA programme full-or part-time, or for our part-time MBA Malaysia programme at our modern campus in Putrajaya.
