What is an MBA degree?

  • A Master of Business Administration, or MBA for short, is a specific class of postgraduate degree that covers the core areas of business practice and leadership, including business law, management, marketing, accounting, operations, communication, and ethics. This type of qualification is typically studied after gaining a few years of professional experience, rather than directly following an undergraduate degree.
  • Completing an MBA with Arden will help you develop today’s most in-demand business skills, expand your business network, and advance your career potential. All of our MBAs are accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the gold standard of management in the UK, which ensures the consistency and quality of the programme. After gaining this highly valued degree, you’ll be fully equipped for the business world, whether you want to progress to a senior-level role or even start your own business.

    With Arden’s range of MBA courses, you’ll have the option of studying at a pace that’s right for you, through either entirely online or blended (online and face-to-face) learning. This flexibility allows you to tailor your studies around work or any other commitments.
