Members benefit from an accelerated programme

You also have an added advantage of being able to accelerate your MBA programme with exemptions of up to 40 credits for finance and accounting related modules. This means that it is possible to complete the programme on a part time basis in as little as 18 months, combining on-campus and distance-learning modules.  Completing the programme as a distance learner means you could complete in 21 months.

Bringing the University to you

The MBA courses are delivered through online facilities and offline study materials, with further support from dedicated tutors, and 24-hour access to resources in the virtual library.

Interaction with fellow students and tutors takes place through the Virtual Campus. If you are reading this page using an Internet Explorer or Netscape browser, you will be able to access the Virtual Campus with ease.

Seminars take place throughout the year over a two-week period, so you can take part at times convenient to you. The seminars provide valuable opportunities for exploring concepts and issues with tutors and other students from around the world.

You should be prepared to devote around 15 hours per week to studying. However, the amount of time you spend studying will vary depending on your schedule, topic interests and ability.

Face-to-face workshops

The programme includes face-to-face workshops. These will provide you with the opportunity to work as part of a team and discuss relevant issues with your peers. You will need to attend at least two three-day workshops during your studies. They will be held in Oxford and at another location outside the UK each year. Dates are publicised well in advance to allow you time to make your travel arrangements.

The Global MBA and Continuing Professional Development

Studying and completing an MBA shows a great level of commitment to your continued learning and development. The Oxford Brookes global MBA is an internationally-recognised course of professional development that is designed to enhance your current capabilities and challenge you with new skills and concepts.

If you are an ACCA member achieving your continuing professional development (CPD), the global MBA may fully meet the 40 unit CPD requirement during each year of study. If you have exceeded your CPD requirements in the final year of study, you can carry forward up to 21 units of your Oxford Brooks MBA onto the following year.
