Part-time Executive MBA Overview

Build the knowledge, leadership skills and networks to realise your career potential and make an impact in your organisation.

Demanding careers and commitments are common obstacles to middle-management professional development. In a business world of high input and high output, professionals are rarely afforded the headspace to plan and prepare a way forward.

The business of changing management is ours

Our Executive MBA is your catalyst for change. Delivered in three-day blocks, over 28 months, the programme gives you the freedom and flexibility to pursue your career ambitions and study alongside work and home commitments.

Our team of academic and practitioner experts will help you become a reflective leader by encouraging you to integrate newly acquired theories and knowledge with the skills, values and experiences derived from your work and life to date.

This research-informed, practice-focused teaching will enhance your existing knowledge in core business management areas like finance, marketing, strategy, human resources, entrepreneurship and innovation.
