The full-time MBA is an intensive programme designed for students with a minimum of three years' managerial experience who wish to progress to more senior and leadership roles in business.
The programme immerses students in a world of academic thought, current business practice and applied projects.
Studied over 12 months, this is a taught programme delivered by world class faculty complemented by guest business practitioners.
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.
The Edinburgh MBA will prepare participants to progress with confidence into leadership roles in this new world. We will:
- deepen participants' 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, and how organisations should be governed, managed and led through change
- instil a passion for business improvement, innovation and entrepreneurial action to help participants lead in the growth or creation of new business opportunities
- develop participants' ability to think strategically and beyond disciplinary silos
Successful leadership also requires accomplished interpersonal skills to bring about change in organisations. Through skills training and professional development, we will work with participants to understand their leadership strengths and weaknesses and provide support for improvement.
