What are MBA degrees?

If you are an ambitious individual looking to further your career and set yourself apart from other working professionals, then an MBA from the University of Greenwich is for you. MBA degrees are advanced programmes that provide students with a strong foundation in various aspects of business management, finance, marketing and administration. You can explore sectors such as financial management, business strategy, corporate governance, sustainability and data modelling. Our internationally recognised courses will allow you to choose your own area of focus.

Even if you do not have a first degree in business, our programme will provide you with a solid grounding in business management, followed by international business courses, projects, and a guided internship. Through this programme, you will gain practical experience by securing an internship with a company of your choice (in the UK or overseas), allowing you to apply your knowledge and become a skilled and influential leader in the international business arena.

The Executive MBA is available on-campus or online. Our flexible study options allow you to combine work with your studies.
