Global Online MBA

Your learning experience

The Global Online MBA offers you true flexibility, and your learning experience is built around the ability to slot into your busy life. With a combination of online learning (both live and at your own pace) and in-person teaching, you’ll build networks with your peers and faculty, dig deep into key theories, and meet at our two face-to-face residential weeks to immerse yourself in MBA learning.

Although the majority of your learning will be online, this doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out – you’ll still participate in group work, join in with online discussions, and access creative approaches to classroom learning. You’ll also get access to expert insight events on the topics that matter to you, and network with cohorts across our other MBA courses during your elective modules.

Your online learning environment

Your online teaching will take place via our intuitive online learning environment, my.wbs, which has been developed with your need for flexibility and quality in mind. Through this technology we’ve removed geographical barriers, so your course is accessible to you, wherever you are.

As innovators in the online learning space, we’re leading the way with new technologies to support you. We’re the first business school in the UK to launch SmartStage®, which uses extended reality to embed you in the online experience. Presenters will speak from our virtual studio, interacting with the content around them to create immersive video lectures.

I'm glad I studied the MBA because I wouldn't be where I am today had I not. I wouldn't know the people that I know. I wouldn't have as well rounded existence as I do and that's inside and outside of work."
