The Sheffield MBA is the flagship programme at Sheffield University Management School and is delivered in dedicated executive facilities.

The Management School’s mission is to use our world-class research base to develop knowledgeable and employable students, promote socially-responsible work practices and have a positive impact on organisations and society throughout the world. This mission drives your MBA journey. We blend our globally renowned research with the opportunity to interact with businesses, allowing you to grow and develop as managers and leaders, ready to develop your organisations and inform society when you return to the workplace.

Sheffield is a lively, vibrant, safe and culturally rich city in the heart of England that offers exceptional opportunities and a warm welcome to students from all over the world.

The challenges of the 21st century require leaders who can adapt to rapidly changing environments, understand situations and find innovative solutions to problems, and then lead their organisations forward. To this end we have designed our programme around the core themes of Consultancy, Leadership and Entrepreneurship. On this programme, you will have the opportunity to work on real projects for a range of organisations, both large and small, and make a difference.

You will join students from across the globe and share your experiences to develop an international and ethical understanding of the world. We also provide opportunities for you to undertake summer schools in a range of international locations to increase your global perspective.

The University of Sheffield is a top 80 university (QS World University Rankings 2015/16) and the Management School has been awarded Triple Crown accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS, placing us within the elite group of the top one per cent of business and management schools worldwide. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), we were ranked 14th overall and are top five in the UK for research impact.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sheffield and on to your MBA journey, and keeping in touch with you when you join our international alumni community.
