As a busy and ambitious professional, you may want the range of skills and expertise that an MBA can provide, but do not have the time to accommodate the schedule of a less flexible MBA programme.

The Edinburgh Business School Master of Business Administration programme is specifically designed to provide an intellectually demanding and rigorous programme that enables you to study when and where you wish and to take examinations anywhere in the world.

You work towards your MBA on a course-by-course basis. After completing three courses, you are eligible for a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, and after six courses for a Postgraduate Diploma. The certificate and diploma awards are formal recognition of your progress; they can also be used as exit awards. To obtain a General MBA, you need to complete 7 core courses and 2 electives.

To do a specialization, you need to do seven core courses and four electives. We can now award up to four credits from the MBA for holders of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) Professional Qualification, which means that they need to complete only five papers for the General MBA and seven courses for the specialized MBA.
