Course Summary

The AMBA-accredited Hull Executive MBA (EMBA) transforms you into a strategic and responsible leader through our business relevant, internationally recognised programme. You will be challenged to think critically to enhance your effectiveness both personally and professionally, developing the skills and understanding required to operate in a complex global business environment.

Teaching is informed by globally recognised research and led by academics with industry experience. Having access to excellent facilities across the University, you and your fellow EMBA students will remain together as a team throughout the programme, learning from each other and enlarging your professional network.

With modules taking place in three day blocks (Wednesday to Friday), every 6 weeks, this allows you to fit your studies around work and other commitments.

There are two main study variants: The traditional EMBA option or the 'Senior Leader- degree apprenticeship' route. Within these, a range of pathways are available, including General Management, Health and Social Care, and Technology Management. We can also respond to industry demand and work with organisations to develop new pathways.

The Hull Executive MBA is taught throughout the year on a rolling carousel system with start dates around every nine months. This means you will be studying some modules, possibly with students from both the traditional and degree apprenticeship routes, who started earlier, and with those that join at a later stage. As a result, you will benefit from being able to build relationships within your own cohort, as well as network with other groups, creating more opportunities to develop your industry contacts.

Our AMBA accreditation confirms our quality, and as a Hull EMBA student, you will:

Become a strategic and responsible leader who can think critically to enhance personal and professional effectiveness.
