How the Executive MBA works

Ken Brown explains the part-time Executive MBA structure and what students can expect in the two-year programme.

How is the part-time Executive MBA programme delivered?

This two-year MBA programme is studied over eight terms. You’ll study nine courses in total, seven core and two electives. Each core course is taught through four-day intensive seminars (Thursday to Sunday), offering class discussions, simulations and case studies. Our seminar structure gives you the opportunity to share your experiences, exchange knowledge and learn from your fellow students, creating a rich learning environment. The programme is supported on campus by a full time, dedicated team.

For your electives, you can choose two from our extensive range of self-study courses, or you could choose to study Research Methods for Business and Management; a double-credit taught course centred on developing a business proposal, and 10,000 - 15,000 word individual project.

I believe that the skills I gained at Edinburgh Business School have given me the best possible platform to make my business a success.
