PROFILE: The Edinburgh MBA aims to give the confidence and competence to progress to an executive management position. There are three routes: 1) Full-time in 12 months; 2) MBA in International Business in 15 months; 3) part-time MBA in 30 months, taught in the evenings.
The programmes start by covering the foundations of business and management. Subsequent terms focus on Strategic Management in greater depth and allow students to specialise or remain generalists by selecting from a wide range of options. Personal Skills and Career Development programmes play a key role. The course is completed by a dissertation.
AREAS OF SPECIALISATION: The wide range of options allows specialisation in finance, marketing, operations management, human resources or strategy.
RECENT CLIENTS: MBAs from the University of Edinburgh Management School are represented in most of the major employers in the Lothian region, and the major consultancies.
