University of Birmingham

Online MBA

The world’s first 100% Online MBA to be accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) combines quality with the flexibility to enhance your ability to perform at the highest level in global business management.


Realise your ambitions

Designed for determined, forward-thinking professionals with at least three years of management experience, our fully-accredited Online MBA will help propel you to greater success, whether you are looking to progress in your current role or head up your own business.

The Online MBA from the University of Birmingham is run by the globally recognised Birmingham Business School. We are the UK’s oldest and most established business school, and were the first university to be accredited by AMBA for a 100% Online MBA. We are also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), which gives us triple-crown accreditation, confirming our elite position alongside just a handful of the world's business schools.

Named 5th in the UK for Graduate Prospects by the Complete University Guide 2019, we understand the value of career development. From the outset, we give students access to employment advice from our Careers in Business team and give direct support on a resume and interview preparation - all to help enhance their career further.

“I would recommend an online MBA to anyone who does not have the time to commit to a residential type course as it gives you much better flexibility. I chose to study online mainly due to my travel commitments: I spend a large proportion of time on aeroplanes and in hotels for work, so it gives me adequate time to complete both reading and assignments.”

Andrew Lavin, Global Head of Asset and Fleet Management, Aggreko From the UK, now living in the UAE
