The Newcastle Business School MBA

Our innovative suite of MBA programmes are designed to develop distinctive individuals into strategic thinkers and responsible global leaders, and can be studied full time, part time or distance learning.

Our Vision:

‘Become an international and professional MBA provider that is distinguished by inspiring and shaping strategic and responsible leaders in an innovative, multi-disciplinary and experiential learning environment’

Who is the MBA for?

You will be a graduate, but not necessarily with a first degree in management. You’ll have three or more years of work experience, ideally in a management role and be keen to invest in a MBA programme that will give you the skills and knowledge to progress your career to more senior levels. Alternatively, you will be looking for the opportunity to use the MBA programme as a stepping-stone to a new career or start a new venture.

You will be intelligent, articulate, confident, and ambitious and motivated to share your experiences with others and commit to a challenging learning experience that will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and develop your global vision to become future leader in the 21st century.
