​Why did we update our MBA curriculum and learning resources?

Delivering on our promise

To remain true to our promise of affordable access to transformational learning, we have recently committed to refreshing and updating our MBA programme, reviving all course content and redesigning our learning platform to keep pace with our changing world and our students' needs. We continue to design our programmes for real life, offering lifelong learning on your terms, helping professional from all walks of life to achieve their ambitions, as we pursue a more equal world through education.

“Edinburgh Business School was established to do the thing it continues to do brilliantly – to provide access to management education to people all around the world, regardless of where they are, the hours that they work or their family circumstances”

Professor Heather McGregor
