Students choose Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University’s online Master Of Business Administration programme for its academic rigour, its intellectual challenge and its proven ability to greatly enhance student career prospects.


They’re also drawn by its sheer flexibility; no other MBA programme gives you as much freedom. You can study the subjects you want, in the order you wish. You can begin and end whenever you choose.

Our Master Of Business Administration programme at Heriot-Watt University covers key management disciplines, including economics, financial decision making, leadership, marketing, people skills, project management and strategy.
