The business magazine, Forbes, has calculated that successful MBA graduates pay back the cost of their qualifications within four to five years on average - with lifetime earnings greatly enhanced thanks to the qualification.

Studying for your MBA with us should enhance your employability and earning power and develop your ability to approach business problems in a strategic manner. As part of the course, you'll study a specialised 'Professional Development' module that is specifically designed to help you boost your career prospects and make the most of your MBA in the employment market.

Employers see candidates with an MBA as potentially more effective and therefore valuable as they examine business issues with a fresh pair of eyes. And with our help, you will develop the analytical and problem-solving skills that will benefit you throughout your entire career.

You will also be able to take advantage of the worldwide MBA Alumni Network, and UEL's superb careers guidance.

The qualification will enable you to go into any sector, anywhere in the world. Or if you have your own business idea and want to start up a company of your own, the knowledge, skills, and qualities you develop on the entrepreneurship module will really help - and you can receive support from the university to assist your entrepreneurial ambitions.

 Stefan Nielsen MBA
I'm very glad that I chose the path that I did and have the MBA. UEL's MBA gave me an invaluable depth of knowledge in global business and the roles each department plays within an organisation. Those tools have opened up doors for me globally and were a factor in my success - achieving my dream job. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to improve their career path and skills."
