    The Leeds MBA is among the most progressive in the UK, at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, located in a dynamic, vibrant city. Our one year Full-time MBA exposes you to the latest management thinking and practice that will accelerate your career. Our part-time Executive MBA covers the same ground over an extended time period to allow you to combine work with study.

    Full-time MBA

    The traditional MBA is a well-recognised academic degree for managers and professionals with work experience. But now the world is more connected, more challenging and dynamic. Employers want more from their managers not simply knowledge and strategic thinking, but also leadership skills, commitment and creativity. This changing environment calls for a more innovative approach.

    The Leeds MBA full-time programme not only integrates business and management theory with practice, but it also puts great emphasis on your personal and professional development. We have worked with our Leaders in Residence to develop an MBA that stretches you academically but also builds in you the key qualities expected of leaders including commercial awareness, interpersonal skills, a genuine depth of understanding of the fundamental business functions and a critical and questioning outlook.

    The programme features a set of challenges that allow you to apply what you have learned to significant business issues and for many of our students the MBA Project is the most exciting and rewarding part of their MBA experience. You will gain an international outlook and build connections - helping you to become a global leader with cross cultural work groups and our MBA international study tours. There is also plenty of opportunity to get to know your MBA colleagues socially.

    We deliberately limit the total number of students in the cohort to ensure that in your time here you are not just a number, but an individual with a specific agenda that we strive to embrace and address in the programme. At the same time we cultivate as diverse a group as possible. On the course you will meet fellow students from all over the globe with a wide range of experience and expertise. Your interactions with your fellow students are a key element of your learning experience with us.

    The combination of these elements develop you intellectually, personally and professionally so that you take the unique Leeds way of thinking into the workplace.

    Executive MBA

    Our part-time Executive MBA has been ranked top in the North in The Economist 2013 rankings as well as being 3rd in the world for salary and 7th in the UK for career development.
    The Leeds Executive MBA is flexible enough so you can fit it in around your work, whilst giving you time away from the office to fully focus on your studies. It is delivered in intensive three day blocks Thursday to Saturday, every six weeks with a few modules delivered over four days, Thursday to Sunday. The majority of teaching takes place at our impressive executive conference facility, Weetwood Hall.

    Following induction you will study core and option modules. You also have the opportunity to take part in international study tours. The majority of assessment is by work-based assignments, allowing you to develop a more strategic understanding of your organisation by focusing your work on a specific management problem or issue. This will directly benefit your organisation. You also undertake 3 live challenges. The MBA Project will usually address a problem or task that has senior management priority and could also be beneficial to your organisation.

    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.
