The Hull Executive MBA is taught throughout the year on a rolling carousel system with start dates around every nine months. This means you will be studying some modules with students who started earlier as well as ones who have joined at a later stage. As a result, you will benefit from being able to build relationships within your own cohort, as well as networking with other groups, thus creating more opportunities to develop your industry contacts. However, you and your fellow EMBA students from your own cohort will remain together as a team throughout the programme, learning from each other and enlarging your professional network.
The Hull Executive MBA provides you with an opportunity to deepen your understanding of Systemic Management and Complexity in the context of international business cultures and to expand your international networks. This International Study Visit module will be delivered on the Hull University campus in spring 2021.
EMBA teaching takes place in three-day blocks, normally Friday to Sunday, every six weeks. Face-to-face class contact is enhanced with online learning in the weeks before and after the blocks. All participants take eight core or compulsory modules, and then choose from three different pathways studied over two years.
* All pathways are subject to sufficient student numbers in order to run.
General Management pathway
Health and Social Care Management pathway
Technology Management pathway
Research Methods and Dissertation
Most EMBA modules are assessed by individual assignments, such as essays and reports. Two modules are assessed by examination, and some may require group project work and the delivery of a presentation.
