The Oxford Brookes Global MBA is an accredited MBA for experienced managers and professionals, which develops your personal and professional expertise. You'll apply what you learn throughout your MBA as you focus on your current role and performance and how to further develop your future career.
Each online module includes live, synchronous collaborative activities. In addition there are opportunities to engage with the wider MBA Community through extra-curricular webinars and other events. On-campus teaching is delivered in intensive block-weeks in the dedicated MBA room on Headington campus.
From the start we'll teach you how to critically analyse real-world cases and the fundamentals of virtual collaboration and teamwork. We'll encourage you to assess your career up to this point with an honest self-audit. With our support we will help you think about what you expect to get out of the MBA, and what you are able to put in.

Questions about fees?
Fees quoted are the full price of the course.
The following factors will be taken into account by the University when it is setting the annual fees: inflationary measures such as the retail price indices, projected increases in University costs, changes in the level of funding received from Government sources, admissions statistics and access considerations including the availability of student support.
How and when to pay
Tuition fee instalments for the semester are due by the Monday of week 1 of each semester. Students are not liable for full fees for that semester if they leave before week 4. If the leaving date is after week 4, full fees for the semester are payable.

ACCA members pay a reduced fee of £14,100 for those starting in March 2023.

Learning and assessment
The MBA syllabus has a range of compulsory MBA modules, covering all key aspects of business administration and management. While you study subjects separately, you learn how they link up in practice through engaging case studies and interactive activities. The Methods of Enquiry module focuses on critical thinking and research skills essential for your MBA studies and final project.
After these core modules, you choose two MBA elective modules. For the final stage of your MBA programme you have five options for your final MBA project to choose from: a dissertation, an individual consultancy project, a group consultancy project, a business start-up plan or a design project. Through the final project you connect the knowledge and expertise you have gained throughout the MBA by exploring an interest in depth.
Wherever you’re based in the world, we’ll make your study experience highly personal and supportive, and you will develop strong collaborative relationships with our MBA community of fellow students, alumni and academic tutors.
Researchers at Oxford Brookes Business School provide new insights into an increasingly complex world.

We aim through our work to provide practical and ethical solutions to some of the most pressing challenges.
Many of the tutors on the MBA are active researchers, who bring their insights directly into the classroom. Some capstone projects result in research publications too.
