Study type Taught


The most popular professional degree programme in the world, the MBA is a globally-recognised qualification designed to develop your leadership skills, underpinned by practical and theoretical knowledge. It offers you the opportunity to formally recognise your business expertise and take you to an exceptional level in terms of career progression, earnings potential and job satisfaction. Completing our MBA will make sure that you have the credentials required to compete against the best.

The MBA (Aberdeen) is our on campus MBA programme. The Aberdeen MBA is focused on the real needs of business and will provide you with an opportunity to develop your understanding of the key knowledge and skills required to succeed in today’s challenging business world, when it's going to be harder and harder to move up without a higher-level qualification. Although the programme is aimed at working professionals, with significant business experience, there is still a lot to learn. We will explore both the practical and theoretical aspects of business, broadening and deepening your knowledge – and focusing on powerful business insights – many of them newly emerging business models that will shape tomorrow. Just like our students will.

During your studies, you will learn about data management for better decision-making and operations management, as well as going on to work on strategy formulation and implementation. You will work on your personal development: skills, style, and leadership. You are prepared to mature as a manager and become able to lead, motivate and manage.

Entry requirements

Open to graduates from any discipline, this programme does not require business or management study to be completed at undergraduate level. This programme is for you if you have a minimum of TWO years post-degree work experience; a track record of professional achievement and a good first degree (equivalent to a British second-class Honours degree) or above in any discipline.

The Programme Director may consider applicants with non-standard qualifications. If you have non-standard qualifications and extensive work experience, please ensure to enclose a complete CV and detailed work references.


Assessment is entirely by coursework – so for example, students are required to produce reports, briefing notes, presentations and reflective journals, which help you build up a personalised portfolio of experience – tangible proof that you’ve acquired key business skills and knowledge and something we know that prospective employers find very useful.
