    Register your interest in graduate study at UCL

    The UCL MBA programme is designed to give experienced business professionals the skills, insights and fresh perspectives they need to write their own leadership story.

    The programme structure goes beyond traditional online MBAs by stressing the use of data, technology and information to forecast critical issues, guide business choices and navigate uncertain situations in a global context. It includes:

    • 8 core modules (120 credits) that equip you with a strong foundational knowledge of business processes, practices and functions.
    • 4 advanced electives (60 credits) that enhance knowledge accrued in the core modules and help you refine your expertise.
    • 1 capstone project (30 credits) that utilises techniques learned in the programme to analyse and forecast growth potential for a focal organisation or industry.

    The UCL MBA online learning experience

    The University College London MBA delivers an interactive, data-centric, future-focused curriculum to busy professionals wherever they are in the world. The programme was designed to be delivered online from the start, rather than retrofitted from an on-campus programme. You will find seamless technological integration, helpful tools and easy access to academics – all within a digital campus that fosters relationship-building and live collaboration.

    Orientations and immersions

    The UCL MBA programme includes optional opportunities to connect with peers, academics and industry leaders. The orientation is three days, while immersions span four days. In-person gatherings typically take place in London right now, but there are plans in place for students to explore leading business markets around the globe, including potential destinations such as New York, Dubai and Hong Kong.
