What is an MBA?

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is an internationally-recognised degree designed to develop the skills required for careers in business and management. An MBA can also be useful for those pursuing a managerial career in the public sector, government, private industry, and other areas. An MBA can be taken full-time, part-time or online and includes a combination of “core” and “elective” subjects that allow students to follow their own interests.

We offer the following MBA programs. See below for a detailed comparison.
