All of our courses have an indicative study duration which is a guide to how long your course will take to complete. The actual duration may be longer or shorter depending on your speed of study, study options chosen and module availability.

Teaching methods and style
The modules you choose to undertake online as part of this programme will utilise a virtual learning environment instead of a traditional campus. The system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials.

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor. To ensure you receive the support you need from your tutor, we cap our class sizes at 20 students.
For all modules you undertake online, we adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment. Assessment for the online modules of the MBA is based on a combination of written coursework, discussion contributions and reflective journal entries considering the key learning outcomes and their applicability to the student. Your course tutor will make the requirements and assessments of each module clear to you before you start.
We also have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

An MBA is an internationally recognised passport to a successful business career. The Ulster University Executive MBA can be studied part or full-time and is designed to equip experienced or aspiring industry leaders and business owners with the knowledge and confidence to be successful in their fields.
Delivered by the Ulster University Business School, Northern Ireland's leading business school for research and ranked 7th out of 101 business schools in the UK (Research Excellence Framework 2014), the Ulster MBA blends both commercial experience and theoretical learning.
As an Ulster University MBA student, you will study alongside a diverse range of professionals, gaining exposure to different organisations and sectors whilst developing your network. This diversity makes for a richer learning environment where knowledge and ideas can be shared. We also offer students excellent support throughout the course, both in their academic study and in their development as managers and business leaders.
You will be taught by academically qualified subject experts who possess a wealth of industry experience within leading organisations. We also work in close collaboration with local and international employers to ensure that the course is relevant and that what you study meets business needs.
The quality of our MBA is recognised by a number of professional bodies and chartered institutes who have provided exemptions from their own qualifications. For example, the requirements to become a Chartered Manager with the CMI are embedded into our programme should you wish to also gain this recognition at graduation.
What Separates the Ulster University MBA? This balance of commercial and academic experience is key to what separates the Ulster University MBA from other programmes on offer in NI.
A Practical and Applied MBA – Our programme is practical, everything we cover has to be readily applicable to real organisations. Complementing our taught modules is a professional development residential (the price of which is included in the course fees).
Chartered Manager – We have embedded the Chartered Management Institute’s (CMI) Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership and Management into our programme. Students can opt to gain this qualification automatically at graduation meaning they can become a Chartered Manager through the exemption route (an additional fee to CMI will apply). We are the only MBA in NI to offer this professional accreditation.
Our Alumni – We have the largest alumni of any MBA in NI. Examples include Kevin Kingston (Danske Bank Chief Executive), Gerry Mallon (Ulster Bank Chief Executive and Chairman of the IFA) and Colin Walsh (Chief Executive and founder of Crescent Capital and past Chair of CBI NI).
Link with the Harvard Business School – In 2013, the Ulster University Business School became the first University School in the UK to join a global network of affiliated universities with Harvard. A number of our lecturers undertook intensive training in Boston and bring specialist knowledge in Harvard case study methods and access to online resources.
Mini-MBA – We understand that undertaking an MBA is a significant commitment, consequently, we offer students the opportunity to trial the MBA through our ‘Mini-MBA’ graduating with a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration. This is a commitment of 2 semesters (or 9 months), successful students can also progress on to complete the full-time MBA should they wish.
The part-time MBA is taught over 2 academic years, starting in September each year. If you wish to "fast track" you can study the course over 1 academic year September to September.
The course begins with a residential induction programme, where students spend 2 days familiarising themselves with the course, with their classmates, and with the academic team.
Students will attend lectures on a weekly basis, (Tuesday in year 1 and Wednesday in year 2) in semesters 1 and 2 (September to December and January to May).
In semester 3 students complete modules on a 3-day "block" basis. This means studying a subject intensely for 3 days which allows students to immerse themselves in the subject area.
Examinations are held after each semester in January, May, and September.
Through the Ulster University Business School's connections with other Universities worldwide, students may be able to take advantage of studying a module overseas.
Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
An MBA will help you develop your career whether it is progressing within your current organisation, changing career into a different profession/sector or working internationally. As a qualification, the MBA is valued and sought after by employers.
Graduates from the MBA course have found that they have been able to deliver value to their organisations through the work that they carry out on the course and thus progress their careers with their respective employers.
Other students use the MBA as a springboard to seek new opportunities both domestically and internationally.
Many students wish to either set up their own business or become business consultants. The course is specifically tailored (especially in terms of assessment and practical teaching) to allow students to develop the necessary skills and expertise to allow this fulfilment.
How does Ulster University help its MBA participants with job hunting?
We have a career development centre which we work in partnership with to ensure students are prepared for the main elements of job hunting (psychometric testing, team interviews, assessment centres, cv building, presentations, etc).

We are one of the few schools worldwide to gain the approval of all three accrediting bodies: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.
The full-time MBA is an intensive programme designed for students with a minimum of three years' managerial experience who wish to progress to more senior and leadership roles in business.
The programme immerses students in a world of academic thought, current business practice and applied projects.
Studied over 12 months, this is a taught programme delivered by world class faculty complemented by guest business practitioners.
Successful businesses in the future will be those that can confidently and capably steer a path through a world characterised by intense competition, rapid technological development, economic turbulence and increasing resource insecurity.
Businesses need leaders who can think and act strategically in this volatile environment, managing the risk and challenges involved, but also spotting and seizing opportunities for efficiency, innovation and new business models. Businesses also need leaders who will act responsibly in delivering value to all stakeholders.
The Edinburgh MBA will prepare participants to progress with confidence into leadership roles in this new world. We will:
Successful leadership also requires accomplished interpersonal skills to bring about change in organisations. Through skills training and professional development, we will work with participants to understand their leadership strengths and weaknesses and provide support for improvement.
The MBA is delivered full-time starting in September each year. The programme combines intensive academic study with practical application. This is achieved both in the classroom through case studies, but also via consultancy-style projects with external organisations to broaden participants’ insights into alternative business models and approaches.
Compulsory courses include:
A range of specialist options are also available. In parallel with academic study, we deliver a Professional Development programme to help enhance interpersonal and leadership skills. Your studies will culminate in a major Capstone Project.
On our core 12-month MBA, there is an opportunity to study International Business in Context (a one-week intensive module located in an emerging market) and to undertake your Capstone Project focused on a country outside of the UK. For those who want further international experience, there is an opportunity to study on our MBA (within international exchange) which will give you the chance to spend 2-3 months on an exchange at one of our international partner Universities (Australia, Canada, China, Finland, France, Mexico, Spain and USA).
The programme is delivered in four parts:
The MBA (with International Exchange) programme is delivered in four parts:
Students will develop an integrated understanding of the essential aspects of business and leadership skills as well as the development of specialist knowledge through the choice of option courses and MBA Capstone project research.
Recently introduced is the option of a specialisation route consisting of taking two options and the MBA Capstone Project in a specific area of focus. Students will have their specialisations recognised with a Business School Certificate in Finance, Entrepreneurship, Strategy or Sustainability. Specialisations must be agreed in advance with the programme team.
The personal development programme ensures that, alongside the in-depth business learning, students will also develop the personal skills and characteristics required by senior managers in the modern business setting.
For those following the MBA (with international exchange), the study abroad period will add an international dimension to their studies, valuable to all who work internationally.
The employment market is highly competitive, but the Edinburgh MBA is distinctive and will provide participants with a competitive edge. MBA participants will engage in a leadership and professional development programme that includes personal diagnostics, career planning and skills enhancement designed explicitly to support participants in their pursuit of promotion or new careers.
The Glasgow MBA will empower you with crucial skills and knowledge and provide you with the networking opportunities you need to accelerate your career, either as a manager within the private, third or public sector, or in developing your own entrepreneurial ambition. We give you one-to-one support to help develop you into a successful leader.
The Glasgow MBA begins with laying the foundations of leadership through three core-learning experiences. You are then given the opportunity to specialise in finance, marketing or strategy. You may also explore additional business subjects such as business analytics, entrepreneurship, supply chain management and business sustainability. An important part of our MBA is the team-consulting project that happens towards the end of the year and is an opportunity for you to bring theory into practice and tackle real life business scenarios. The final stage of your MBA is your dissertation. You will work on this from May to September on a topic agreed between you and your supervisor.
You will learn about the intellectual perspectives and methods that underpin the practice of making decisions essential for business management. In this course you will explore the many different disciplinary and methodological traditions that should inform effective analyses of the business world. You will also learn how informed thinking and analysis will assist you in making decisions and delivering better business outcomes.
This course integrates five key business disciplines from a strategic perspective which are covered in modules. These are strategy (dynamic strategic management), HR and operations (developing your leadership through people and resources), marketing (strategic marketing), finance (financial analysis and decision-making), and business environment (global economics). You will develop the skills expected of senior managers and be capable of developing a career in any leading organisation. This learning experience ends with a week-long intense team-consulting project where you will be challenged to cover and to integrate the areas/subjects studied both in the core courses as well as in the electives.
This course is designed to broaden your perspective by encouraging you to listen and think about tangible strategic challenges, in both local and international contexts, which are presented to you by experienced business leaders, entrepreneurs, consultants and/or public servants. Guest speakers cover issues such as:
Through guided discussions after each presentation and case-discussions complementing these topics, you will learn to develop skills to articulate previous and potential future responses to strategic challenges, and the likely effectiveness of these responses.
Following the core courses you will pick five optional courses, enabling you to specialise in finance, strategy or marketing. The courses on offer vary each year and are taught by a range of leading academics and practitioners, based on their research or personal experience of the corporate world.
