An MBA, or Master of Business Administration, is a master's degree designed to develop your skills as a business leader. Not only should an MBA programme deepen your understanding of business administration it should also provide you with critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills.

A Master of Business Administration degree is ideal for ambitious professionals who already have a successful career but want to further their skills and knowledge to help them achieve their career goals.

For many professionals studying online is the perfect option; no need to leave your current job and the ability to earn an MBA whilst managing work and a busy personal life too.

Many busy professionals are electing to study for their MBA degree online, find out why:

  1. Business as usual – no need to relocate or stop working
    One of the most obvious benefits of studying online is having the ability to maintain your career and continue to work while you study.

    If you wish to study for your MBA online there are a number of programmes that are designed to fit into your current lifestyle, such as the online MBA programme at the University of Liverpool. This online MBA programme is 100% online and asynchronous – which means there are no fixed times to be online, and all of the assignment deadlines are set in your time zone.

    David Hadley, Chief Executive Officer at Mediclinic Middle East in Dubai and a University of Liverpool online MBA graduate, explains why the flexibility of studying online was so important to him:

    “I had wanted to study an MBA for many years, but my busy, unpredictable work schedule and young family, prevented me. When I heard about the University of Liverpool’s online programme I realised that it would now be possible for me to balance my studies with my career and my family. Without the online method I doubt that I would have been able to commit to such a programme.”
  2. Apply your MBA know-how to your work
    As an online student you can expect to experience the benefit of your MBA long before you graduate. As an online MBA student you are encouraged to bring your real-life experiences into the classroom so you can share your knowledge with like-minded professionals from around the world.

    The online MBA offered by the University of Liverpool is highly collaborative and students share their current working knowledge, discuss new solutions and ways of working and are encouraged to try these methods and report back to their fellow students.

    This process encourages real-world learning that helps you put your new skills into practice immediately.
  3. The opportunity for global networking
    One of the often-overlooked benefits of studying online is the opportunity for global networking that some online MBA programmes provide. Online study can mean collaborating and interacting with professionals from all over the world, all bringing their own unique view. The University of Liverpool has 10,000 students from 160 countries worldwide, providing you with a large pool of global experience to draw from.

    Frencis See is an MBA graduate from Hong Kong who has widened her professional network through the online MBA degree at Liverpool. “My classes were very international and I met people from all over Africa, the UK, USA, Ukraine and Middle East. I have stayed in touch with some of the Hong Kong-based students and attend our local alumni meetings.”
  4. Explore new career opportunities
    By gaining an online MBA degree you could be potentially opening yourself up to a world of employment and career opportunities.

    Many professionals believe that earning their MBA has given them a career boost. Faranaaz Lippert is a Business Development Director, living in South Africa and attributes some of her recent business success to the MBA that she earned through online study with the University of Liverpool.

    “Our business was voted ‘2015 World's Leading Travel Club’, an accolade that in my opinion comes directly as a result of applying what I was taught throughout the MBA programme. Seeing my career and business excel as a result of the programme is really satisfying.”
  5. Earn an MBA from a world-class university from anywhere in the world
    Many professionals are keen to earn a degree from an institution outside of the country that they live in which is why they turn to online learning – it gives you access to education from all over the world.

    The University of Liverpool is one of the top 200 universities in the world and is part of the elite Russell Group. Many students appreciate the opportunity to earn an MBA from such a prestigious university by studying online.

    The online MBA programme is offered by the University of Liverpool Management School, one of an exclusive group of less than 5% of business schools worldwide with sought-after AACSB Accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
