Keele University launches innovative online MBA courses

Keele University has launched a suite of entirely online MBA degrees - designed to develop innovative, strategic and transformational leaders who will stand out and succeed in today’s dynamic and ultra-competitive employment market.

Created in partnership with online education specialists Higher Ed Partners, applications for the online MBAs are now open and the first classes will start in October 2020.

With a core MBA as well as specialisms in both finance and entrepreneurship, the degrees equip ambitious professionals with the skills to lead effectively, ethically and sustainably.

What makes these MBA courses particularly exciting is that they are delivered entirely online and can be studied from anywhere in the world. With a flexible course design, the MBA content can be accessed on demand, on desktop or on mobile, enabling you to study around your work and family commitments, wherever you are.

Professor Mark Ormerod, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost at Keele University, said: “We have a proud track record of innovation and daring to be different with the courses that we offer. These innovative and flexible online MBA degrees have been developed to equip a global audience of learners, from a range of backgrounds and with diverse life circumstances, with the knowledge and skills to set themselves apart and succeed in leadership and management. They will learn how to do so in a highly collaborative and supportive peer-to-peer online learning environment.

“As a University that has been internationally recognised for its teaching and research excellence and has consistently led the way nationally for student satisfaction, we are delighted to deliver this new course as we continue to innovate as an institution.”

Dr Will Foster, Director of the MBA and Executive Programmes, said: "I'm looking forward to the start of the new online MBA courses, our on-campus Senior Leader MBA programme has been very successful since its launch last year. We are excited to be offering these programmes online and to help expand access to high-quality higher education."
