Students choose Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University’s online MBA 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 MBA programme covers key management disciplines, including economics, financial decision making, leadership, marketing, people skills, project management and strategy.

Programme Duration

It takes approximately 200 study hours per course. On average, the programme is flexible and it takes 1 to 4 years to complete a full MBA, but it can be completed faster or over a longer period. You can choose your own pace by picking up or setting aside your studies whenever it suits you best. Your schedule always takes priority.

Learning Delivery

Course materials are made available online through the virtual learning environment (VLE). The VLE links you with our expert academics and course materials through videos, webinars, articles, journals, assessments and discussion boards. With us, it’s completely up to you when and where you sit your exams and you need only pay for one at a time. You can choose when to sit your exams and if you need to rearrange, that’s no problem either.

Student Support

Even the most gifted and most confident of students need a little help from time to time. With Glamis Business School you’re never far from the support of our tutors and your classmates. Additional support is available through online resources such as tests, practice essays, collaborative discussion forums where you can engage with students around the world and tools to help you track your progress through the course materials.

Entry requirements

  • Students with other qualifications will be considered on a case to case basis
  • Alternatively, formal entry can still be gained by passing three MBA courses one of which must be a core course.


Rewarding previous study – Exemption

If you have gained a qualification in a relevant subject prior to the start of your masters programme, EBS may be able to reward this hard work with an exemption from certain courses.
These exemptions are only ever at the discretion and are considered on the basis of qualifications gained through formal examination – whether at degree level or through a professional body. The qualification being presented for consideration should have been gained within the last five years. Qualifications gained over five years ago may be considered if additional supporting evidence shows that you have keep abreast of current developments in the subject area through CPD.

Exemption from core courses may be granted on the basis of bachelor level and professional qualifications. Exemption from core and elective courses may be granted on the basis of postgraduate level qualifications (except fully completed degrees) and professional qualifications.

Exemptions will not be awarded on the basis of courses which have been used towards the award of another degree at Masters level, whether this was awarded by Heriot-Watt University or any other institution. For example, a student who has gained an MSc in Accounting will not be given an exemption in Accounting from Edinburgh Business School’s MBA or MSc degree programmes.
