The Manchester Global Part-time MBA

In today’s international economy, companies seek strategic thinkers with commercial flair, global understanding and excellent people skills. The Manchester MBA will take you out of your comfort zone from day one and encourage you to think, question and find solutions to complex, global business problems.

Whether you are looking to reach new heights in your existing industry or change direction completely, you will graduate from the part-time MBA with the skills, experience and confidence you need. Now only two years long, with options to accelerate study even further, this is an MBA that fits around your career without compromising rigour.

The Manchester MBA is now structured around 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. We've aimed to create a personalised MBA programme that delivers exactly what you need while you continue working.  With our wide range of electives, you can further tailor the MBA to suit your personal goals and interests.

“I’ve changed jobs (and cities!) twice since starting the Global Part-time MBA, once halfway through the programme and again since graduating. The core knowledge I gained about finance, macro-economics and global trends gave me both the confidence and the know-how to apply for different roles. The roles I’ve moved into are very different than the one I had when I started the programme, in terms of scope and exposure to different parts of the organisation. The programme’s flexible study format definitely enabled me to make these moves and having the MBA on my CV helped with the selection process.”

“Following eight years of multinational FMCG experience at BAT, Unilever and Nestlé, moving from the corporate world to starting my own business was a key transition in my career.

The Global Part-time MBA gave me exposure to lots of real life examples of start-ups and new business development, which helped me develop my own business plan. This would not have happened without the commercial understanding I got from the programme.”

Graduated: 2014

“From Dubai to China, Singapore to Miami, Manchester Business School workshops increased my global reach, transforming my professional and personal lives. I have met great people from all over the world and built lasting relationships. I took this journey to ‘open my mind’, however it ‘blew my mind’ and not only mine, but that of my husband and son who came along with me.
In three words - Challenging, Enriching, Global. MBS changed everything.

Graduated: 2015
