1. Why study an MBA?

An MBA is your ticket to advancing your career. Covering all key aspects of business, you will explore key topics in opening and developing your company. The program may include subjects like strategic management, human resources, financial, supply chain and operations management and entrepreneurship and innovation.

The Eton University online MBA contains four mandatory modules and two optional, allowing you to study what is most important to you, your area and your industry.

2. Where will you use your certificate?

It is important to note that not all certificates are accepted worldwide. You need to make sure you are choosing a course which will grant you the qualification you need to work where you want.

Our Online MBA certificate is awarded by the University of Chichester, a silver standard British University. The University is accredited by Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation), the UK governmental regulations body. Your certificate will not state that the mode of study is online.

3. Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?

Do you see yourself as the owner of your own company? Perhaps you see yourself managing a successful department in a big firm? Wherever you see yourself, you’ll want to make sure you are fully equipped to succeed in your goals.

Our online MBA focuses around leadership and management, within these modules you will learn how to plan ahead and manage not only your work aspirations, but your personal ones as well.

4. How do you want to study?

There are a huge number of MBA courses available to students. You can choose to study purely online, through blended learning or within a classroom. Blended can mean anything from 3-6 months in the classroom or the inclusion of online tuition.

The Eton University Online MBA does not need to be purely online. You can add 6-12 weeks of intensive classroom-based tuition at our Manchester campus in the UK.

Alternatively, you can enrol for 7 months at our partner university campus, The University of Bolton. You don’t need to decide straight away we can add this option during your studies!

5. How will you financially support yourself?

A classroom-based British accredited MBA can cost almost £30,000 for tuition, accommodation and living expenses. Are you planning to work whilst you study? Do you have a sponsor?

With an online MBA, students can save costs on accommodation whilst still earning money from work. Our flexible MBA means you can study while you work and save costs on living and travel. And with flexible instalment plans, there’s no need to save before you start!
