About the Nottingham MBA


The Nottingham MBA brings together diverse people, perspectives, and organisations to enhance management practice and find innovative solutions to global business issues.


You will be taught by senior industry figures and highly regarded academics. This provides a powerful combination of innovative current research with a practical understanding of how to lead teams and businesses.

The Nottingham MBA is for you if you’re:

  • a graduate with management experience
  • wanting to change career
  • in a management role and hope to expand your leadership skills
  • starting or growing a business
  • committed to sustainable business practice

Globalise your MBA

Nottingham’s global reach gives the MBA a uniquely international dimension. International study tours provide opportunities to travel to China, the USA and South America, offering invaluable insight into global business.

Nottingham MBA students get a first-hand taste of different types of organisation, examining their business model and approach to problems and business functions as part of Business Practice Week.

We organise visits to workplaces such as leading retail pharmacy chain Boots UK, and multinational aerospace and transportation company Bombardier, regeneration tours of the Kings Cross area of London, stately homes, and even a cattle market.

We offer both a general MBA course and a specialist, part-time Executive MBA in Healthcare.

"In addition to the high standard of teaching, you'll be studying with a diverse group of students from all over the world, representing all business sectors - from accounting to zoology.

Nottingham University Business School has far exceeded my expectations. The course is demanding but highly rewarding and it gave me a tremendous sense of achievement." John Murphy (MBA)
