Our part-time by supported open learning programme is primarily aimed at individuals who are working full-time and need to balance study with work and home commitments. It employs supported open learning, a flexible learning model which uses a mixture of different methods of study. It is open to home students (UK and EU), who are required to study approximately 12 hours a week over slightly under three years.
The full-time mode of study is open to UK, EU and international students and is completed at the Greenwich Campus over a 12 month period. Home students wishing to undertake study leading to PGDip Management (previously called a DMS) should apply for the Executive MBA (by supported open learning) and request an exit award after 120 credits.
We have developed strong relations with companies in the financial centres in London, including in the City, Canary Wharf, and Fenchurch Street. This offers you networking, mentoring and internship opportunities, making it a perfect location to develop your career.
You can also reach out to top employers through our dedicated Business School Employability Office (BSEO). Our team focuses on developing your employment skills through CV support, interview skills workshops and guidance through mentors to progress in the industry.

This MBA includes executive coaching, which helps you to understand your value in the marketplace and develop plans that will make the very best of your career potential.
The BSEO team was shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards; which shows their dedication to actively support career development.
