Ways to study

On campus or online, full-time or part-time: study in a way that suits you.

Everyone has different schedules and commitments, so at Derby, we make sure your MBA study can fit around you.

You can either attend teaching sessions on campus, study 100% online from anywhere in the world, or combine the two*.

You can also choose the length of your programme:

Full-time study

This is the fastest route to the MBA. You will need to attend regular classes at the University’s Kedleston Road site in Derby.

Part-time study

You will need to attend evening classes at least once a week. Usually these are face-to-face classes at Kedleston Road, Derby, however, you may be able to study some of the modules online, subject to approval*. 

Online study

You will interact with our experienced academic team and guest experts in a bespoke collaborative online learning environment. You will be able to use learning resources, the e-library and a wide range of support services. Our dedicated online learner advisors are also on-hand to offer you non-academic support throughout your studies.

Fast-track your learning

If you’re a full member of ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) or CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), or already hold the CMI L7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership, you may be eligible for exemptions from up to three modules on the MBA Global and MBA Global Finance, equivalent to 60 credits. Please contact us to find out more.

*Mixture of online and on-campus: planned to be available from September 2017
