Our Executive MBA is especially designed for middle managers wanting to move into a senior management role and those on a fast-track career path within their organisations.
Businesses increasingly seek strategic thinkers with sound leadership capabilities, strong financial skills, an intrapreneurial mind-set, global understanding and excellent people skills. The Cranfield Executive MBA, delivered in partnership with Grant Thornton, will take you out of your comfort zone and transform you to reflect, question and find solutions to complex business challenges.

You will study with a cohort of experienced professionals drawn from a range of industries and countries, building your network and giving you insights into best practice internationally. In addition you will be able to apply the knowledge and skills you develop during the programme immediately in the workplace.
