Course summary

We offer the world’s first and only MBA focused on the Circular Economy. This new economic model aims to:

  • use resources and energy more effectively
  • reuse products and materials
  • deliver increased profit for organisations
As a student you’ll have a unique degree and first-mover advantage, opening up a range of new career opportunities. You’ll learn the core aspects of a traditional MBA programme, augmented by in-depth study of this contemporary economic model – equipping you with the skills you need to tackle the business, social and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century. The curriculum has been developed in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. You’ll study topics including:
  • regenerative product design
  • new business models
  • reverse logistics
  • materials, resources, energy and competitiveness
  • operations, marketing and strategic management
The programme is studied part time through distance learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the MBA at a pace to suit you in anything from as little as 9 months to six years. Parofessional Accreditation We are proud to be in an elite group of business schools to hold the triple accreditations of Equis, AMBA and AACSB, often referred to as the "Triple Crown".
