Study at your own pace
At AIB, students have the flexibility to study at the pace that suits them. Unlike other institutions, we offer many intakes throughout the year, plus the ability to speed up your studies with concurrent courses subject to meeting our eligibility criteria or slow it down to make it achievable for you, and schedule breaks in as well when you need them. The Fast-Track MBA is truly flexible to your schedule.
There are 11 MBA terms per year at AIB, with each term running for 7 weeks followed by a 1-week break. Students typically spend around 150 hours per course (or about 20 hours per week) to complete their MBA, but this varies, depending on your personal level of experience and education.

The assessments in our MBA include written assignments and reports, recorded presentations, case study analyses and online quizzes. As a practically-focused business school, all of AIB’s assessments are practical in nature, and we have a strong focus on authentic assessment methods.
This means that you can base your MBA assessments on your workplace, industry or a professional scenario you’ve been in, so that your MBA learning has real world context and application. In many cases, students are able to use their assessment research and reports to start enacting change in their workplace while studying.
A degree is not essential for entry to the Fast-Track MBA (Logistics & Supply Chain Management). There are multiple entry pathways that allow you to use your practical experience.
