The Edinburgh MBA enhances your career potential by delivering a unique and powerful set of insights, tools and skills to prepare you for strategic leadership in a rapidly changing world.
This 12 month MBA programme focuses on a range of core business disciplines and integrating courses to build your capability for incisive analysis, innovation and strategic leadership. It also allows participants a choice of specialisation in finance, strategy, entrepreneurship or sustainability.
In semester 1 and 2A, students study twelve foundation courses in major disciplines; this is the foundation upon which the whole MBA is built. These include a course in corporate strategy and a week long integrative project. In addition students select three specialist option courses. Here you tailor your studies towards your career interests, through the selection of your option courses. Learning about strategy also becomes a central feature of the programme at this stage.
Recently introduced is the option of a specialisation route consisting of taking two options and the MBA Capstone Project in a specific area of focus. Students will have their specialisation recognised with a Business School Certificate in Finance, Entrepreneurship & Family Business, Carbon Management or Strategy. Specialisations must be agreed in advance with the programme team.

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.
