European MBA

We deliver cutting-edge programmes and ground-breaking research that transform individuals, organisations, business practice, and society.

Entrepreneurship is a theme that permeates our programmes. It is the subject of formal modules in the MBA and EMBA programmes, and is explored and applied by the Entrepreneurship Centre and the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship. You will have first-hand experience devising solutions to complex challenges, and take these skills into larger organisations, social enterprises, and even your own innovative businesses.

Individually, our faculty and alumni are at the forefront of their fields and provide intellectual leadership not only for businesses, but also for institutions such as the European Commission, the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the UK’s Behavioural Insight Team, and the World Bank. Through these and many other connections, we aspire to be the most influential institution of our kind in the world.

One year full-time MBA

We aim to provide the world’s future business leaders with the skills, knowledge, and personal qualities needed to meet the world-scale challenges of the 21st century.

Our world is unprecedentedly complex, connected, and fragile. Our trust in institutions and each other is under intense pressure. Our energy, food and water security, our aging populations, the explosion in stored data – these all require managers and leaders of unusual ability, sophistication and integrity. This environment needs individuals who can inspire and influence a wide range of stakeholders, and who can demonstrate responsible leadership in the face of complex and often forgotten conflicting interests and our MBA programme will equip you with these skills.
