University of Edinburgh Business School

World class MBA

The world's most powerful business qualification, delivered by world class faculty in a University ranked 21st globally. Join a vast, international MBA network of the very best leadership talent and progress with confidence into business leadership roles.

The Edinburgh MBA enhances your career potential by delivering a unique and powerful set of insights, tools and skills to prepare you for strategic leadership in a rapidly changing world.

The Edinburgh MBA

We aim to provide flexibility and variety with our MBA by offering three different variants:

1. Full-time MBA (12 months)

Build your capacity for incisive analysis, innovation and strategic leadership through the range of different courses and business disciplines. Participants may choose a specialisation in finance, strategy, entrepreneurship or sustainability.

2. Full-time MBA (16 months)

Students will get the opportunity to spend 4 months abroad, besides taking the same core courses as the 12 month programme. The international component includes an exchange with one of our University partners and an international internship.

3. Executive MBA (27 months)

This programme is specifically designed for working executives who prefer part-time study. The course is delivered in a modular format on Fridays and Saturdays, once a month. The taught part of the programme takes place over 21 months, followed by a Capstone Project.

TestPlant MBA Scholarship

Donated by international software business TestPlant, this scholarship offers a £10,000 bursary towards tuition fees & internship.

Collaborating with business

Students will have access to business practitioner speaker events, while working on a number of consultancy projects.

Alumni network

Our alumni team will offer you a number of services after graduation including networking opportunities and career support.

Exchange students

We offer exchange opportunities for our MBA students with a number of prestigious international University partners.

Scholarships / Funding

Applicants to both the Full-time MBA and the Executive MBA can apply for a range of MBA scholarships. In addition, applicants may also be able to apply for scholarships from the University of Edinburgh or external organisations.

We are keen to recruit the very best talent from all over the world. To this end, a number of School-funded Scholarships are available, as well as others which are generously sponsored by industry and alumni.
