Summary

The Executive MBA is a taught programme delivered by experienced internal and visiting faculty, and complemented by guest practitioner speakers from industry and the professions. Over a two-year period, the Executive MBA combines short intensive bursts of classroom interaction with online support.

Successful businesses in the future will be those that can confidently and capably steer a path through a world characterised by intense competition, rapid technological development, economic turbulence and increasing resource insecurity.

Businesses need leaders who can think and act strategically in this volatile environment, managing the risk and challenges involved, but also spotting and seizing opportunities for efficiency, innovation and new business models. Businesses also need leaders who will act responsibly in delivering value to all stakeholders.

What will I learn?

The Edinburgh MBA will prepare you to progress with confidence into leadership roles in this new world.

On the programme we will deepen your understanding of:

  • how businesses and markets work

  • how value is created through innovation and marketing

  • how strategies are crafted

  • how businesses are financed

  • how performance is measured

  • how value is delivered efficiently and effectively

  • how organisations should be governed, managed and led through change

We will develop your ability to think strategically and beyond disciplinary silos. Successful leadership also requires accomplished interpersonal skills to bring about change in organisations. Through coaching and skills training, we will work with participants to understand their leadership strengths and weaknesses and provide support for improvement.
