The Brunel MBA is one of a distinguished minority of MBA programmes in the UK to have achieved accreditation by AMBA (The Association of MBAs) the leading accreditation body in the UK. It is designed to meet the needs of managers in the private or public sector who wish to develop skills and advance their understanding of the theory and practice of business and management in preparation for a senior management position.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is recognised worldwide as the pre-eminent business practice development qualification for aspiring senior managers.
The entire programme is designed to equip you with knowledge, skills, understanding, confidence and energy, to tackle the difficult demands which organisations face in
today´s rapidly changing business environment. Our MBA graduates consider the programme to be highly stimulating, intellectually challenging and a genuinely life-changing experience. And it is well respected by employers too.

The richness of the Brunel MBA curriculum is based on the key business concepts that can help managers and CEOs alike develop the expertise required to lead and manage in the international business context. The highly commended Leadership MasterClass Series and the Career Development Programme combined with over 500 hours of student-tutor direct (teaching) contact hours successfully maintain the balance between theory and practise and reflect the School’s ambitions for its graduates.
The Brunel MBA academic component comprises core modules, followed by elective modules in General Management, Healthcare or Aviation and is crowned by a Business Project.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
The Brunel MBA recruits managers and other professionals of high calibre who can both benefit from and contribute to an intellectually challenging management development programme.
