About Us

Real-world knowledge for real lives. 

Edinburgh Business School Online offers unique learning experiences to match the circumstances, motivations and commitments of our students so they can study at their own pace. Our online MBA, MSc, DBA or PhD qualifications are designed to inspire and develop a global community whilst supporting students to succeed on their own terms. Regardless of location or lifestyle commitments, students are at the heart of the learning experience and benefit from programmes that provide practical knowledge to be put into action.

Study on your terms.

At Edinburgh Business School, we give you the chance to study and pursue your dreams on your own terms.

We want to empower you - highly motivated professionals - with the courage to think strategically and act decisively in the face of complexity and uncertainty, through flexible learning that integrates with you, your family and work life.

“It is normal in the UK military to move location and position every 2-3 years. At the start of my studying I was not sure where geographically in the UK I might be living or working and therefore the flexibility Edinburgh Business School offered was incredibly important to me.” Shamus MacLean, Deputy Director Base Executive Operations, Royal Navy.
