  • reuse products and materials
  • deliver increased profit for organisations

As a student you’ll have a unique degree and first-mover advantage, opening up a range of new career opportunities. You’ll learn the core aspects of a traditional MBA programme, augmented by in-depth study of this contemporary economic model – equipping you with the skills you need to tackle the business, social and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century.

The curriculum has been developed in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. You’ll study topics including:

  • regenerative product design
  • new business models
  • reverse logistics
  • materials, resources, energy and competitiveness
  • operations, marketing and strategic management

The programme is studied part time through distance learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the MBA at a pace to suit you in anything from two to six years.

Professional accreditation

We are proud to be in an elite group of business schools to hold the triple accreditations of Equis, AMBA and AACSB, often referred to as the "Triple Crown".

Our Distance Learning MBA ranked in the top 15 in the world, and 3rd in the UK in the Financial Time Online MBA Ranking 2018.

Core Modules

Option Modules

Learning and assessment

All our MBA programmes are made up of three stages

  • Core modules – designed to help you get back in to learning and provide fundamental knowledge of management principles and theory
  • Elective modules – provide an in-depth understanding of specialist topics that are essential and relevant to the contemporary commercial world. Students choose those that are of most interest or greatest career benefit
  • Management project – enables you to put the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme to practical use on a relevant management issue

Circular Economy students are not required to attend any sessions at University of Bradford School of Management. However students can chose to study up to three modules (each running over 3-5 days) at the School of Management or at one of our partner institutions in Singapore or Dubai for no extra cost (other than travel and subsistence costs).

Your knowledge and understanding of each subject area studied will be assessed by the most appropriate means. This will typically involve the completion of a written assignment, an exam or in some cases an assignment and an exam. If you need to sit an exam we have approved examination centres worldwide, making it highly likely that there is an exam centre near you. Please note, if you do not sit the exam at University of Bradford School of Management or RDI (Coventry) you have to pay an extra fee to your chosen examination centre.

How you study

All students start their studies by taking the ‘Circular Economy – Core Principles and Concepts’ module. This module provides a firm grounding on the key issues associated with the Circular Economy. Following on from this students are expected to take two subjects (modules) every three months.

Each module contains nine study units. Students typically progress by studying one unit from each module per week. This equates to approximately 14-16 hours of study per week. Once you have studied the ‘Circular Economy – Core Principles and Concepts’ module it may be the case that you don't think that you have enough time to study two modules over the three month period, if so you can always chose to study just one module, lightening your workload considerably.

If work or family life is particularly busy then you can even suspend your studies and restart at a later date. This flexibility means that students can complete the Circular Economy MBA in two to six years. We do however strongly advise that students study two modules every three months.
