Flexible MBA

The Oxford Brookes Global MBA offers exceptional flexibility, providing you with a world-class education in a format that suits your work and personal life.

Whether choosing to study your MBA online or during teaching weeks on campus, or a mixture of both, you will be immersed in an environment that asks much of you and emphasises collaboration and openness.

And with the freedom to choose elective modules to suit your interests and study in a timeframe that fits in with your lifestyle, your MBA will be as individual as you are.

How We Teach Online and On Campus

The Oxford Brookes Global MBA is designed for experienced professionals who want to fit their study in with their busy lives.

We deliver your MBA programme through a blend of learning so you have the flexibility to choose online study or on-campus delivery if you wish. This flexibility helps you fit your MBA study with your work and personal commitments.

You can interact with the MBA community of students and staff through both online study and face-to-face delivery, helping your MBA learning experience reflect today's dynamic global work environment.

Study Online

You can choose to study your MBA programme online with some compulsory face-to-face attendance. This gives you the flexibility you need if you live internationally, travel extensively for work, have irregular work patterns/hours or you have a busy family life.

Wherever you are in the world, you are supported by access to the online university resources, e-books and online discussions with support from tutors and MBA administrators.

You interact with fellow students and tutors through the Virtual Campus. With support from your dedicated Academic Advisor, you track your development and create actions for future growth.

Online study allows you to fit the MBA programme around your work and personal commitments, in the best way to suit you. And you'll see an instant impact as you implement your learning immediately into your workplace.


You can also choose to study most of your MBA face-to-face in Oxford, combined with some online study. Many modules are available to study on campus in a six-day block. The face-to-face blocks help to intensify your learning and establish closer networks with your fellow MBA students. You can decide which modules to take face-to-face and those you wish take online.

Compulsory face-to-face time includes two, three-day residential hotel-based workshops and one six-day on-campus module in Oxford. These are available at various times throughout a two-year period. You can choose to take these 12 days in a row, or bite-sized blocks of three and six days.
