About Essex Online MBA at University of Essex Online

Harness your entrepreneurial spirit and prepare to make waves with one of the only 100% online MBAs accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

Developed with the world-class team at Essex Business School, this online MBA programme will help you develop the knowledge, self-confidence and skills to lead within the dynamic environments of the modern business world.

You will take part in interactive Director's Workshops, which bring industry leaders and outstanding speakers before our entire MBA student population for a week-long engaging experience. This is a unique opportunity for students to apply their knowledge to a variety of commercial scenarios and explore real-world business challenges from different perspectives.

Experiential learning is at the core of our MBA programme. Our interactive real-time synchronous attendance events deliver a wealth of reflection and learning opportunities for our students as they collaborate in groups of different sizes and composition. These real-time interactions allow students to contribute, share and reflect upon experiences and insights drawn from the different industrial, geographical and cultural perspectives represented in the global MBA community.

You will also benefit from your classmates' expertise and experiences, alongside the course content, with our in-depth discussion forums. Subject tutors will be available during live seminars and virtual office hours, while our range of assessment techniques allow you to demonstrate your diverse skillset and understanding of the business areas.

Throughout this course, you'll explore a broad range of topics including:

  • different approaches to leadership and their impact on culture and business performance
  • the global flows of resources, ideas, knowledge and people as features of global enterprise
  • the effect that operations have on the sustainability of an organisation
  • international marketing strategy and planning
  • the three critical components of entrepreneurship
  • accounting and finance techniques and their application in organisations
  • work team effectiveness and motivation

Your studies culminate in the completion of an MBA Project, a dissertation or business plan on the business area of your choice, with research that you have conducted yourself.

Entry requirements

We offer two different entry routes on to our Online MBA, taking into account relevant academic qualifications and prior work experience. You will also need to meet our English language requirements.

Additionally, you will need to pass your first assignment set within your two-week induction period of the course in order to continue with your studies.

Academic entry route

In order to satisfy the academic entry route requirements for our MBA programme, you must have the following qualifications as a minimum:

  • a 1st, 2:1 or 2:2 undergraduate degree from an approved institution equivalent to a UK Honours degree
  • at least three years' relevant, professional work experience, post-graduation

Work experience entry route

If you are a non-standard applicant (which is typically an applicant who possesses an undergraduate degree below a 2:2 standard, or an applicant who does not possess an undergraduate degree at all) we require at least five years of relevant managerial experience. You will also be required to write an essay (2000 words) outlining a range of business situations which you have experienced and identifying what you have learnt from them.

Your application will be considered on an individual basis taking into account your motivation for doing the course, prior work experience and other relevant qualifications that demonstrate your ability to successfully complete the programme.

English language requirements

As our courses are delivered in English, a high proficiency with English is required. If English is not your first language, your English ability should be equivalent to an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.0. Don't worry if you don't hold an IELTS or equivalent qualification - we offer a free online English test to assess your proficiency.

You don't need to prove your English ability if you are a national of, or have completed a qualification equivalent to a UK degree in, any of these countries.

What students think about University of Essex Online

    Andy Robertson, BA (Hons) Business and Management

    Testimonial from Andy Robertson, BA (Hons) Business and Management, student at University of Essex Online

    “Being a naval chap, I thought that I was a broad, adaptable, comfortable manager.

    However, as a mature student, the vagaries and pressures of work take priority and zap your energy, making the balance beyond work, between family and study even more precarious.

    In maintaining the balance between work, study and home life, I learned that one has to set aside a period known as the “study period” and sacrifice being idle! Giving up free time simply means giving up time without purpose, a really neat trick of useful time management. And when in doubt, I sought the great bunch of tutors and student advisers at University of Essex Online.”

    Breshana Francis, CertCE Law

    Testimonial from Breshana Francis, CertCE Law, student at University of Essex Online

    "I am a Jamaican living in Qatar with my family as expats; we can be called upon to relocate to another country at any time. The University of Essex Online law programme fits perfectly with this lifestyle, as it provides the flexibility that I need to pursue my studies vigorously and to keep up with my ever-changing environment.

    I was able to achieve my CertCE Law, which allows me to continue studying towards an LLB qualification. The University of Essex Online law degree programme has developed and shaped my mind to think like a lawyer from the start of my studies.

    During this time, I can work, take a holiday and have family time as this is only possible through The University of Essex Online programmes."

    Aisha Legge, MBA (Human Resource Management)

    Testimonial from Aisha Legge, MBA (Human Resource Management), student at University of Essex Online

    "I wish I’d started my MBA years ago. I feel like I’m part of a community. I created a WhatsApp group for students based in the UAE and we physically meet up regularly. If I can’t watch any lectures live because of the time difference I can watch them on demand and our tutors try to be flexible with their office hours.

    Even though we’re miles away from the Essex team, they’re always willing and able to help with any issues or questions I have. My student adviser, Marie, replies promptly, is always able to assist me and offers support in my studies.

    My hope is that my MBA will help with career advancement and open doors to opportunities with potential employers in the future."
