MBA Top Up

This Master of Business Administration (MBA) (top-up) programme is for those who already hold a qualification in Business at the postgraduate level. This is an opportunity for learners to enhance their career prospects. If you are an experienced manager or at the early stage of your management career and have already achieved a postgraduate qualification in business administration, management, strategic leadership or an equivalent then you can top up that qualification to achieve a full MBA.

At Cambridge Management and Leadership School, we can evaluate your existing qualification's eligibility for MBA Top Up.

We will process your application to our partner institution so that you will be able to complete an MBA degree at the dissertation stage.
