Monthly Subjects

Focus with Flexibility.

Our monthly learning model allows you to accelerate your learning by focusing on one subject every month before moving onto the next. You can mix and match with some on-campus modules if it suits or even consider an international exchange.

And if something comes up at work or home, you can always defer a subject or two. It’s a 12 Month MBA but you have up to three years to finish, if you need it.

Course Structure

Get qualified before you graduate.

After just your fourth subject you will be a Graduate Certificate in Management holder and after your eighth subject will be a Graduate Diploma in Management holder. This is very useful if you are applying for a job half way through the MBA, putting a tender in, or just want some recognition as you progress through your 12 month journey.

Entry Requirements

No Degree? No problem.

We understand that not everyone has taken the traditional route to get to where they are. Many of our students have not completed a first degree but may have years of management or business experience. Others have formal qualifications but not much work experience. AIB offers pathways into the MBA for those who do not meet the direct entry criteria.

The 12 Month MBA will take you where you want to go, regardless of where you have been.
