Providing you with a deeper understanding of key business functions, we combine academic excellence with holistic management skills to prepare you for some of the highest level positions in global business management.

Bradford MBA

University of Bradford

For over 15 years, we’ve partnered with the prestigious, triple accredited, University of Bradford School of Management to provide you with an online MBA that has been ranked number one in the world for career progression and third for salary increase. You’ll still get access to Arden benefits, such as flexible payment options, but you’ll have the University of Bradford on your degree certificate.

As a university we are constantly evolving to ensure that you’re learning relevant information informed by the latest research. Our MBA programmes are taught by leading academics, with expertise covering a wide range of business sectors, who will encourage you to place theory into the context of real world problems. Rather than focusing on key business functions independently, our academics strive to integrate different management disciplines to broaden your knowledge of the complex landscape of modern business.

Your career, your future

Designed for those committed to advancing their knowledge and career prospects, our MBAs focus on employability to ensure you receive an excellent return on your investment. They have also been accredited by CMI so you can be assured your qualification has workplace value and will be respected by employers around the world.

Postgraduate community

To enhance your learning experience even further, you’ll have the opportunity to become part of a dynamic postgraduate community and connect with fellow students, from all over the globe, with a wide range of experience and expertise. You’ll also be connected to a network of expert academics and alumni so you can continue to grow your connections from day one.
