An MBA for tomorrow's leaders, today

Bring your passion and drive to learn and we'll give you a rigorous online MBA programme.

Students are drawn to our online MBA programme by its academic rigour, its intellectual challenge and its proven ability to greatly enhance student career prospects.

They’re also drawn by its sheer flexibility; no other MBA programme gives you as much freedom. You can study the subjects you want, in the order you wish.
You can begin and end whenever you choose.

Our MBA programme covers key management disciplines, including people skills, economics, marketing, accounting, finance, strategic planning and project management.
You must pass seven core courses and two electives; there's a three-hour exam for each course.
