The Bradford MBA


The Bradford MBA is designed for professionals with at least three years’ work experience at middle or senior management level who want to change career, boost salary and career progression, start a business or develop broad management expertise that will change the way you think.


The Bradford MBA is currently ranked by the Financial Times (December 2014) as one of Europe's Top 40 MBA programmes. The Bradford Distance Learning MBA is also ranked by the Financial Times (March 2015) as 8th best in the World, and World No.1 for alumni career progression (see rankings for more). We are accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB which puts us in an elite group of business schools with the ‘triple crown’ (see accreditation for more).

Celebrating our 50th anniversary last year, we are one of the oldest university-based business schools and our MBA programme, which is respected by leading employers worldwide, has been running for over 30 years.

Bradford MBA students become part of our prestigious international network of students, staff, alumni and business partners.


We offer MBA students the choice of a number of different routes and study modes, with the flexibility to switch between them during the programme

Depending on which mode of study you choose, you can either be based in Bradford or at one of our partner institutions across our global campus. There is also the option to take different modules in different locations.

Whichever MBA route you choose, you will get all the benefits of studying at a leading international business school and gaining a globally recognised qualification.

The Bradford experience

Many of our MBA alumni and students describe the experience as “life changing”. Our aim is to ensure that our MBA graduates can make a positive contribution to the organisations they work for and wider society. The principles of sustainability and sustainable development are embedded throughout the student experience, teaching and research.

At our Bradford campus and across our global campus, we create a collaborative, supportive learning environment in which students, staff, alumni and businesses and organisations can share knowledge and ideas.
