Manchester Global MBA

This demanding and stimulating Global MBA is one of the toughest around and provides an invaluable opportunity to collaborate across continents and network with over 3500 high achieving executives.

The Manchester Global MBA is highly flexible and portable, meets the needs of busy executives and fits around your personal and professional commitments. Our proven blend of robust academic theory and practical, hands-on experience means you can start putting your learning into practice from day one, providing immediate benefits for you and/or your employer without putting your career on hold.We have dedicated international centres where you can attend your residential workshops in Dubai, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Sao Paulo.

The residential workshops are the highlight of the programme for all students. They are a valuable opportunity to meet your fellow executives, build your global contacts and experience a different culture. You can attend the workshops in any of our global centres across the world to suit your personal work and travel commitments, but we encourage you to attend at least two outside your home centre to broaden your international business perspective.

You may select the general stream or opt for one of our specialist learning pathways in finance, engineering or project management.
