Is Newcastle Business School the right place to come and study? As one student put it:

Honestly, if I had to choose again, I wouldn't choose anywhere else - it's the people, the place, the whole experience.

Undergraduate Study

You can choose from a balanced portfolio of clearly structured, cutting edge, undergraduate programmes designed to give you a head start in the competitive graduate employment market. We offer a high degree of flexibility enabling you to tailor your degree to your own personal or professional interests. The vast majority also offer the option of a placement year in industry to develop you further. Additionally, we offer you the opportunity to study overseas at one of our many partner universities around the world. Also, you may achieve exemptions from the examinations of major professional bodies such as the CIM and CIPD.

Postgraduate Study

As one of tomorrow's business leaders, our postgraduate programmes will inspire you to achieve excellence. You will develop the knowledge, skills and competences essential to 21st century business in a challenging, innovative and relevant environment. You will develop into a ‘reflective practitioner’, acquiring a range of critical thinking skills, a high degree of self-awareness and a capacity for independent learning.

Part Time Study

At Newcastle Business School, we offer a range of part time programmes that are flexible and recognise that often people cannot always commit to full time higher education. Programmes are delivered in flexible ways - whether that's by distance learning or in part time taught modules on campus, even if you are in full time work. Not all our part-time programmes require traditional academic qualifications with real-world management experience or professional qualifications taken into account.

Distance learning

Distance learning enables you to study at your own pace. Within a semester structure, and within limits, there is often the flexibility to dip in and out to suit you. Although some programmes offer residential elements (which are excellent ways to meet other like-minded students), there is often no need to visit our UK campus at all. No matter where you are based, you are never alone. The online environment is highly supportive with continuous interaction with tutors and peers through virtual seminars and online discussion groups.

The Newcastle Business School MBA

Our new MBA provides experiential learning that is based upon real business problems. You will experience hands-on projects, connect with industry leaders, and engage in transformational professional development. You will enhance your CV through a personal development journey that transforms managers to distinctive strategic leaders. Newcastle Business School's new MBA offers research rich, business relevant content supported by executive coaching and career support.
