In today’s international economy, companies seek strategic thinkers with commercial flair, global understanding and excellent people skills. The Manchester MBA will take you out of your comfort zone from day one and encourage you to think, question and find solutions to complex, global business problems.
Whether you are looking to reach new heights in your existing industry or change direction completely, you will graduate from the part-time MBA with the skills, experience and confidence you need. Now only two years long, with options to accelerate study even further, this is an MBA that fits around your career without compromising rigour.
The Manchester Global Part-time MBA is now structured around practical themes, rather than traditional subject areas. This real-world focus ensures we develop reflective leaders who can navigate the most challenging global trends and tensions. We've aimed to create a personalised MBA programme that delivers exactly what you need while you continue working. With our wide range of electives, you can further tailor the MBA to suit your personal goals and interests.
Global MBA 2015
Business Development Manager - Chevrolet, GMC & Electrical Vehicles
General Motors, UAE
“The MBA not only helped me change my job, it changed my life! It gave me the opportunity to advance my career by moving to a leading multinational company. The MBA broadened my business thinking; my decisions are not only based on a sales perspective, they also integrate finance, accounting, marketing, operations and much more. During the ‘Business Simulation’ course, my colleagues and I had to take twelve business decisions and analyse the financial consequences; I never imagined that would become my real job after the MBA."
Global MBA 2012
Vice President in Risk Management
BNY Mellon, UK
“I changed jobs (and cities!) twice after starting the Global Part-time MBA: once halfway through the programme and again following graduation. The core knowledge I gained about finance, macro-economics and global trends gave me the confidence and the acumen to apply for new roles that are very different. The programme’s flexible study format definitely enabled me to make these moves and having the MBA on my CV helped with the selection process.”

“Since completing my MBA, I have been promoted to Managing Director - MENAP. This has not only involved utilising strategy and skills learnt from the MBA programme, but also meant involving some of the people I met and networked with during my time at the school. I have hired and collaborated with people I met and worked with on the programme. Knowledge, networking and friendship sum up my MBA experience”
