Designed so executives and managers can continue their careers while studying, our Executive MBA develops your competence to generate value, improves organisational effectiveness, and enhances your ability to work with others to achieve successful change.

It will give you a general management perspective on the functions of a business and how they can be integrated with a rapidly changing environment, together with an up to date knowledge and understanding of the operations of a business enterprise and the practical skills you need to manage them. Course members typically have at least five years of management experience, while the average is more than 10 years.

Our Executive MBA students come from around the world, including Africa, Australia, Europe and the Far East, and the UK.

Nottingham's ideal location and excellent transportation links allow managers located anywhere in the UK or overseas to participate.

As we appreciate that you need to plan your MBA carefully to fit in with your work and other commitments, we offer maximum flexibility, allowing you to accommodate your studies into your lifestyle. You can choose from several starting points throughout the year, vary the number of modules you take each year according to your commitments, and can spread the cost by paying for each module as you progress.
