  • Course description

    Approximately 200 study hours per course.


    As a busy and ambitious professional, you may want the range of skills and expertise that an MBA can provide, but do not have time to accommodate the schedule of a less flexible MBA programme. Firm on standards and quality, the EBS MBA programme allows you to tailor your study route to meet your own specific requirements.

    The EBS Master of Business Administration programme is specifically designed to provide an intellectually demanding and rigorous programme that enables you to study when and where you wish and to take examinations anywhere in the world.

    You work towards your MBA on a course-by-course basis. After completing three courses, you are eligible for a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, and after six courses for a Postgraduate Diploma. The certificate and diploma awards are formal recognition of your progress; they can also be used as exit awards. Specialist awards are available at diploma and MBA level depending on your choice of courses.


    You must complete the seven core courses, and two electives.

    The courses can be studied through self-managed distance learning, through an Approved Learning Partner or as the Executive MBA on campus in Edinburgh (see Study options). EBS also offers 4-day seminars and 2-day revision seminars in certain courses on campus in Edinburgh (see Study options).
