The Modular Executive MBA provides a flexible learning experience that will give you the skills, the knowledge and the edge to make you a better business leader and decision maker.

Delivered over a four day block format once a month our Modular Executive MBA allows you to have a more focused approach to learning providing a more immersive experience compared to a typical part-time programme. You are able to work full-time while developing new business skills, knowledge and expertise to transform your career. If you would prefer to study in the evenings, please look at our Evening Executive MBA.

The first year is designed to build on your current expertise and explore other key areas, you will gain a bigger picture of business as a whole which you can implement in your work immediately. During the second year, you have the opportunity to tailor the content learnt through a wide choice of electives, culminating with a major piece of self-managed consultancy.
