    Global Executive MBA

    Hult’s Global Executive MBA offers the most global, practical, and flexible business education available. Build a study program around your own schedule, upgrade your skills, and take the next step in your international career.


    Choose where, how, and what to study.

    Our Global Executive MBA is a two-year program designed for working professionals. You attend classes over one four-day weekend a month and have maximum flexibility to design a program of study around your needs. You can take up to four years to complete the program.

    Customize where you study

    Study at any or all of five campus locations during your two-year program and seamlessly relocate if your circumstances change.

    Customize how you study

    You have the option of studying Module 1 or 2 online if you need to, and can pause your program if your situation unexpectedly changes. You will be given up to four years to complete this two-year program.

    Customize what you study

    Specialize in Marketing, Finance, Project Management, Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, or General Management and choose projects that are relevant to your career goals.

    Campus locations

    Study at up to three of five locations each year.

    At Hult, you can learn about world markets by studying in several of them. We offer you the choice of five Executive MBA campuses worldwide — and the ability to rotate seamlessly among them. First choose a home campus to complete your core studies from October to April: London, Dubai, or Shanghai. Then, if you choose, you can customize your study program by taking specialization electives from May to July at any two of these locations: London, Shanghai, Dubai, San Francisco, or New York.

    Relocate without interruption to your program

    Our global campus network means that if your circumstances suddenly change, or you need to relocate to a different part of the world, we can help you make the transition to a new home campus without interrupting your studies.

    • London  
    • Dubai
    • Shanghai
    • San Francisco – Rotation center   
    • New York – Rotation center  


    Customize your Executive MBA: When you pick your specialization, you are able to tailor the program’s content to meet your individual and professional goals. From May to July each year, choose elective classes relevant to a specific career or industry, or study a broad range of general management topics. 

    EMBA specializations


    Focus your studies on international marketing to grow an existing global brand—or create one of your own. Gain specialized skills in market research, branding, consumer behavior, sales, and new product development. These combined business and marketing skills prepare graduates for a wide array of careers that go beyond traditional functional marketing.


    Give yourself the competitive edge in the world of finance. Designed with input from Fortune 1000 CFOs, leading academics, and a broad range of finance professionals, this specialization provides broad exposure to areas such as corporate finance as well as developing your analytical and interpretive skills— crucial no matter what finance career path you choose.


    Social responsibility and sustainability are increasingly issues at the top of the agenda for leading businesses. This specialization has been created for anyone committed to making their organizations more responsible, sustainable, and successful. Get to grips with areas as diverse as environmental economics, sustainable development and design, and social justice—and understand the way in which all of these affect the global supply chain, business practices, and future business strategy.


    Got a great idea for a startup? Acquire all the knowledge, tools, and mentorship you need to start your own organization. You can further focus your studies in social entrepreneurship by gaining knowledge of how to navigate social and political issues, as well as a full understanding of how to make change happen. (Note: Since many of your professors are successful and busy entrepreneurs themselves, some of these classes might be conducted online.)

    Project Management

    Strong project management can mean the difference between businesses that thrive and those that fail. This specialization will equip you with the technical and people skills required to manage major projects for multinationals, family businesses, and NGOs. It is designed to give you the wide range of skills necessary for planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources to meet business objectives.

    General Management

    Want to ensure you have as broad a perspective as possible on global enterprises? Simply take the courses that interest you the most from any of the specializations above. This will help you build the knowledge and skills that you feel will best help you in your chosen career path.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
