This page sets our the delivery schedule and modules of the online MBA and routes. You can study a maximum of two modules each trimester, where available. The first six modules can be taken in any order, however, when selecting your modules please consider when the specialism modules are delivered as they do not run every trimester.

These final modules can only be taken once you have successfully completed all other modules. Your Project must be in your specialist area.
