Welcome to the Global Part-time MBA at Manchester Business School; only two years long, with options to accelerate study even further, this is an MBA that fits around your career without compromising rigour. It offers as much face-to-face time as most full-time programmes, yet you only study on campus three times a year.

Each course is structured around an intensive, three-day workshop - held conveniently in Dubai or any MBS international centre - where you learn in small multinational groups from expert faculty and talented peers. At either side of these workshops, online lectures and discussions enrich your learning.

The programme culminates in a six-month live company project, where you will put everything you've learned into practice. It's an opportunity not to be missed and we hope you can join us.


The Manchester MBA is structured around four practical themes, rather than traditional subject areas. This real-world focus ensures we develop reflective leaders who can navigate the most challenging global trends and tensions.

  • Management in Practice
  • Value Creation in Business
  • Tailoring Your Journey
  • Professional Skills for Business
We've aimed to create a personalised MBA programme that delivers exactly what you need while you continue working. You will benefit from the latest thinking and develop skills that will set you apart in today's competitive marketplace. With our wide range of electives, you can further tailor the MBA to suit your personal goals and interests
