The traditional MBA is a well-recognised academic degree for managers and professionals with work experience. But now the world is more connected, more challenging and faster moving. Employers want more from their managers – not simply knowledge and strategic thinking, but also leadership skills, commitment and creativity. This changing environment calls for a more innovative approach.
The Leeds MBA programme
The Leeds MBA full-time programme not only integrates business and management theory, but it also puts great emphasis on your personal and professional development. At the heart of the programme is a set of challenges that allow you to apply what you have learned to significant business issues. For many of our students the MBA Project is the most exciting and rewarding part of their MBA experience. You will gain an international outlook and build connections - helping you to become a global leader with cross cultural seminars and our MBA international study tours. There is also plenty of opportunity to get to know your MBA colleagues socially.
"The Leeds MBA has changed the way I think and how I look at different issues. It has helped me organise my study efficiently in an intensive task environment and given me the opportunity to learn from others in an international environment.” Ai Guo, from China, Marketing and Sales in Logistics, Class of 2012.
We offer a number of part scholarships worth up to 50% of the total fee to candidates who can demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and career progression. All candidates who are offered a place on the full-time MBA programme or executive MBA programme will automatically be considered.
