At Newcastle University, our Executive Master of Business Administration is designed for senior leaders who want to shape their organisation’s future and their own career.


You'll explore and pioneer solutions to global challenges in relation to:

  • yourself
  • your organisation
  • the wider society

The Executive Master of Business Administration is a part-time, flexible, work-based programme. It's delivered using a blended learning model. You'll have monthly two day study blocks on campus during teaching time. In advance of study block attendance, you'll engage with the programme and module-specific blended learning materials and resources

This will still allow you to study flexibly around your work and personal commitments.

The group intake will be small. You'll enjoy:

  • individualised personal development
  • group action learning
  • developing relationships in a trusted peer group. They'll become a powerful support network beyond the life of the EMBA

The curriculum is dynamic and relevant. It combines:

  • world-leading research
  • thought leaders from the world of policy
  • practice and real-time projects

The EMBA is also work-based and experiential. It's designed to enable you to learn through working on real organisational challenges. You'll reflect on your own professional practice.

The EMBA is available as a progression route when studying the Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies.

What you'll learn

You'll study contemporary leadership theory relevant for today’s volatile, uncertain and complex future. During the EMBA you'll:

  • develop inclusive, relational leadership practices essential for responsible business
  • learn skills of strategic planning and analysis across core business functions
  • recognise the role of collaboration in tackling challenges and exploring possibilities
Your development

Research skills

Sustainable business sits at the heart of the curriculum. We'll provide you with a unique in-depth experience to explore and deliver material actions against the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

You'll design and undertake a research project. This will challenge individual, organisational and global business practices.
