The NBS Global Executive MBA aims to create responsible leaders with a truly global perspective

The two-year course aims to change the way leaders think about business, supporting them to become a comprehensive and sustainable leader in an increasingly fragmented, geopolitical world.

The programme features online learning to fit around busy schedules, as well as visits to Nottingham Trent University in the UK, Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa and the Insper Institute of Education and Research in Brazil, which will present opportunities to network and make invaluable business connections across the world.

The Global Executive MBA involves live case studies which will see students immersed in contextual leadership projects, exploring real-world, strategic challenges, and applying their learning to their own workplace.

NBS is recognised as an exemplar and beacon by the United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME). In line with its commitment to champion PRME objectives, the NBS Global Executive MBA has a focus on sustainable and responsible leadership.

These principles are embedded throughout all the modules, which include topics around developing a global mindset, leading agile transformation, and building and leading a resilient organisation.

The programme also features a Personal Leadership Development module. In addition, individual Academic Mentors will be assigned to support with academic, personal, and professional growth.

Director of MBA programmes at NBS, Julie Rosborough, said: “This not just something for a CV. It’s a transformative learning experience – both professionally and personally. Participants will be joining a global cohort of like-minded professionals and will build a valuable network that will last a lifetime. This prestigious Global MBA is a fantastic opportunity for leaders and future leaders to accelerate their career and broaden their global perspective on business.”

NBS is accredited to AACSB and EQUIS, the highest international standards for business school education. Students on the Global Executive MBA will also be able to take advantage of the facilities and support available at the award-winning Nottingham Trent University.

Applications are now open for January 2024, visit the NBS website for further information.
