Part-time MBA | Brunel Business School

The part-time Brunel MBA is a two-year course with two intakes per year, one in September and one in January. This programme is ideal if you work full-time, part-time, have family commitments or simply want to study at a slower pace.

Brunel MBA students represent huge diversity in the variety of industries, professions, cultures, and countries that they come from and this is one of the key strengths of our programme. The people you meet on your MBA make up a valuable network and possible friends for life.

The international quality benchmark statement for the MBA says that that it represents a "practice development master’s degree". Hence The Brunel MBA is a post-experience MBA, which means that all participants are required to have significant work experience, including at least three years’ experience at managerial or professional level before joining the course.

The average age of the current MBA intake is 34 and participants have an average of seven years' professional work experience.

The class sizes are between 25 - 35 students, allowing for an excellent learning atmosphere and individual attention.

The course is made up of three terms: Winter, Spring and Summer. Typically you will study 50% of the programme each year alongside our full-time candidates. Exams are in May and a dissertation period completes the second year of programme, leaving you ready to re-enter the business world with new skills and confidence.
