The Hull MBA has been designed in response to excellent research into how real organisations function internally and how they operate in an ever-changing global context. This approach will allow you to recognise and balance the strategic and operational needs within an organisation. You will be challenged to relate your learning to your own experiences, stepping outside your existing area of expertise to see how your current role and skill set fits.

Get a wider perspective

A significant aspect of this perspective is an understanding of ethical and environmental issues. We have substantial experience in this field, and are proud to be one of the first institutions to sign up to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative. We are also active in the European Academy of Business in Society (EABIS).
