Combining quality with flexibility, our Online MBA has received formal accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
Designed for determined, forward-thinking professionals, the Online MBA from the University of Birmingham, run by the globally recognised Birmingham Business School, is now the world’s first 100% online AMBA-accredited MBA.
"[It] reflects the high standards we have set in designing and delivering this programme of study, using the latest technology and teaching methods,” said Dr Michael Shulver, Director of the Online MBA & MSc International Business, University of Birmingham.
As numbers of senior level positions in business are set to rise¹, this places greater significance on undertaking a qualification which bridges the gap between managerial and more advanced roles. Our fully-accredited online MBA course will help propel you to greater success, whether you are looking to progress in your current role or head up your own business.
Professionals are able to study at a time and pace which suits traditional working hours and apply their learning immediately. Standing out from the crowd is important. Learning the latest trends and innovative techniques is especially so:
Current University of Birmingham Online MBA student, Andrew Lavin, explained his course selection criteria: “I realised the importance and global recognition this type of qualification carries – I was sure I would be learning some of the latest developments the MBA arena would have to offer.”
Online MBA vs campus equivalent
And whilst an online MBA was once considered less credible than the campus equivalent, the tide is rapidly changing thanks to the fully immersive and interactive digital approach and the stamp of approval this accreditation provides. Online education is the future and allows for more flexible working for those studying alongside work, for example.
Director of Educational Enterprise at University of Birmingham, Ian Myatt, clarified: “The programme’s learning objectives and outcomes are the same as the campus-based course; the academics are of equivalent calibre, the subject matter is near-indistinguishable, and when students graduate the certificate they receive is the same. For employers, there’s no distinction.”
Birmingham Business School is dedicated to developing the next generation of global business leaders through online learning.
