Course content

World-class ranking and global Accreditation
Consistently ranked No.1 in the North, top 10 UK, top 25 European and amongst the world's top 70 programmes, the Bradford MBA speaks for itself (Financial Times Executive MBA rankings, 2010).

Real world partnerships
The Bradford MBA is grounded in practice as well as theory. After over 40 years delivering management education, we have built close links with industry, commerce, central and local government that benefit students.

Exceptional value for money
Bradford is a relatively inexpensive city for students and the School ranks 11th in the world in the Financial Times tables for value for money.

Research excellence
High-quality research underpins any world-class business school. The Higher Education Funding Council rates our research as internationally excellent in some areas and nationally excellent in others.

International profile
Around one-third of our academic staff are from outside Britain and more than 30 nations are represented amongst our students - ensuring a truly international focus.

One of our main aims is to address major challenges for business and society. Hence, the School seeks to prepare students who can apply the principles of sustainable development in their professional capacity.

Individual support
We integrate a student's personal development into the MBA programme through our acclaimed Personal Development Portfolio (PDP).
Our Effective Learning Service also smoothes a student's return to education, helping them make the most efficient use of their study time.

State-of-the-art facilities
The School is located 4km from the city centre in its own delightful parkland campus. In this learning village MBA students can benefit from the recently redeveloped campus.

Exceptional students
Our students are our greatest asset. They are ambitious, committed and ready for hard work.

The Bradford MBA is an opportunity for students to change their life, refresh careers and gain a qualification that will bring them personal satisfaction and provide the foundations for future professional development.

Career prospects
The School has an enviable reputation for developing world class leaders who progress to fulfilling and successful jobs in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors across the world.

Starting in January, this unique programme - the first of its kind in the UK - has been created for the most highly motivated and
committed students, offering them the chance to complete the Bradford MBA in a shorter time period than the normal 12 months. We have a cohort of up to 30 students who work in study groups of five to seven.
