ACCA Global MBA

  • ACCA

    We work in partnership with the ACCA, an organisation at the cutting-edge of industry-related education progression

    Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)

    Our partnership with the  ACCA   is a unique relationship. The ACCA co-founded the distance learning MBA with Oxford Brookes.

    We continue to work together, developing the curriculum for the Oxford Brookes Global MBA. You can choose to study your MBA programme online (with some compulsory face-to-face attendance), attend on-campus intensive block weeks, or a combination. This may be ideal if you live internationally, travel extensively for work, have irregular work patterns/hours or you have a busy family life.

    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 the two-year period. You can choose to combine these in one trip, or bite-sized blocks of three and six days ACCA members gain access to credit for the Accounting and Finance module and an elective module. As such, there is an accelerated route for ACCA members, which can be completed through the online learning environment in 24 months. Additionally, ACCA members benefit from a much simpler application process and a discounted fee*.

    The alliance between the ACCA and Oxford Brookes University combines the strengths of both institutions to deliver the MBA across the world.

    The ACCA is the world's largest global accounting body with expertise in delivering education globally. It has 170,000 members and 436,000 students in 180 countries. The ACCA offers business-relevant, first-choice qualifications to people of application, ability and ambition around the world who seek a rewarding career in accountancy, finance and management.

    *Please note that if you have been an ACCA member for 10 years or more the university will require further evidence to show you qualify for the exemptions for the Accounting and Finance modules.'

    "I truly believe the Oxford Brookes Global MBA is very valuable and probably the most time efficient addition to the ACCA qualification."
