Teaching and learning changes for 2020-21

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have made some changes to teaching and learning for some postgraduate courses in the 2020-21 academic year.  These pages will be updated regularly, so please check back for the latest information about your course.

MSc courses | Master of Business Administration (MBA) | Executive Education

Our students build a greater awareness of global issues through the School's international contacts in business, academia and governments across the world. A lively guest lecture programme runs alongside a number of the courses, where lectures are delivered by individuals at the top of their game.

Many of our programmes are accredited and recognised by professional accreditation bodies. Study with us and you will develop the skills to operate on an international stage and secure a vibrant, successful professional future.

Staged Admissions

Our most popular courses receive many more applications than we have study places available. To manage the competition for places on these courses, we operate a staged admissions process, with application and decision deadlines throughout the year. Find out more about our staged admissions process and deadlines.
