The University of Edinburgh Business School’s mission is to provide the highest quality business education to develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Academic strengths
EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA accredited, the School is consistently ranked highly, reflecting its history of providing business education since 1918, as well as the substantial experience of a faculty comprising more than 80 teaching staff. Many staff are active in industry-based research and consultancy for commercial organisations and government bodies. This research work feeds into the quality of the teaching and helps to bring students up to date with current business issues.

Links and networks
The School fosters strong corporate links and has an extensive programme of over 70 guest speakers drawn from the local and international business community each year. A number of joint events are organised with business support organisations to promote networking. The School also hosts a number of company recruitment presentations and co hosts the annual Scottish MBA Careers Fair at which around 20 companies and organisations are represented. The School’s links with the business community are enhanced by its many research centres and institutes, including the Centre for Financial Markets Research, the Credit Research Centre, the Centre for the Study of Retailing in Scotland and the Centre for Entrepreneurship Research.

The campus and city
Our home is a modern, purpose-built building with 24-hour access and wireless computer facilities throughout. We have our own café for refreshment and discussion. We are situated on the lively university campus in the heart of Edinburgh, and the School is a three-minute walk away from the University’s main library, one of the most important research libraries in Europe. Edinburgh itself is Scotland’s ancient, yet vibrantly modern, capital city. It is lively, safe, welcoming and full of local character. It is the second financial centre of the UK, and boasts many libraries, museums and galleries. In the summer, it is home to the largest cultural festival in the world – the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe.

Outside of the city, students can participate in the University’s Outdoor Development weekends on the shores of Loch Tay in the Scottish Highlands are a welcome addition for those wishing to participate in outdoor pursuits.

We want to develop not only your knowledge but also your interpersonal skills in order for you to hone your leadership potential. School strengths lie in strategy, finance, carbon management and entrepreneurship. You may want to become a member of EUTIC, the Edinburgh University Trading and Investment Club. The club owns the UK's largest student-run investment portfolio. The School hosts the Edinburgh Entrepreneurship Club which holds a number of events, including a series of talks by entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley. In addition, the club has two entrepreneurs in residence, both highly experienced entrepreneurs in their own right which provide valuable feedback and advice to budding entrepreneurs.

Our international cohort has on average of eight years work experience so you will learn a lot from your classmates that you won’t find in any textbook while our comprehensive guest speaker programme gives you a multitude of opportunities for networking

The university is the leading research university in Scotland, and amongst the top ten in the United Kingdom.

Voraussetzungen / Zulassung
MBA programme academic requirements
Entry requirements are normally a 2:1/1st class Honours degree from a good university in any subject, or an appropriate professional qualification, plus at least three years’ continuous work experience in substantial positions. For guidance, a 2:1 degree equates to GPA 3.25 or its equivalent. Other equivalent qualifications can be requested from the Admissions Team.
If a candidate has a lower class of degree than a 2:1 equivalent then professional qualifications with substantial work experience will be considered. Applicants who do not hold degree or professional qualifications may be considered if they have a very strong employment record demonstrating a high degree of responsibility.

A GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) score is an essential component of your application. A minimum score of 600 is preferred. However if your score falls below this minimum, and you meet the other prerequisites for entry and if your application shows you to be an outstanding candidate, then your application will be given due consideration.
It is essential you prepare for your GMAT test in good time and, if possible, detail the test date on the application form in the “relevant knowledge” space on the on-line application form.
If your application is otherwise complete, a conditional offer can be made pending a satisfactory GMAT and/or language test result.
