Course summary

Centred on the challenges of responsible business, the Online MBA will enhance your ability to perform at the highest level in global business management.

Advance your career at a gold standard institution

Designed for ambitious professionals with at least three years of management experience, the Online MBA will enhance your understanding of business theory, practice and leadership.

The programme is part of a range of MBAs run through the Birmingham Business School, the UK’s oldest business school. As well as being acclaimed internationally, it appears regularly in global league tables and holds the rare ‘gold standard’ triple-crown accreditation. The School is committed to promoting curiosity and thought leadership for responsible business; two core principles running throughout the Online MBA.

Thanks to the highly transferable, practical and contemporary programme content, you will graduate with the real-life skills and confidence you need to step into a senior leadership role and make a greater impact in the world of business.

Your programme of study

Exploring all the core areas of business, from marketing and strategy to operations management and accounting, this 180-credit programme is split between twelve modules, plus a final dissertation. Spanning 2.5 years, you’ll have time to delve deeply into the module content and reflect on everything you’ve learnt and apply it directly to your career.

In your first year, the focus of the programme is centred around core module content. In your second year, you will be able to build upon theories and practices by choosing from a selection of elective modules (such as Critical Integration in Management and Entrepreneurship and Innovation). This, along with your dissertation in the final six month, will allow you to tailor and align your studies with your interests and career objectives.
