Course content

We offer the world’s first and only MBA focused on the Circular Economy.

This new economic model aims to:

  • use resources and energy more effectively
  • reuse products and materials
  • deliver increased profit for organisations

As a student you’ll have a unique degree and first-mover advantage, opening up a range of new career opportunities. You’ll learn the core aspects of a traditional MBA programme, augmented by in-depth study of this contemporary economic model – equipping you with the skills you need to tackle the business, social and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century.

The curriculum has been developed in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. You’ll study topics including:

  • regenerative product design
  • new business models
  • reverse logistics
  • materials, resources, energy and competitiveness
  • operations, marketing and strategic management

The programme is studied part time through distance learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments.
