Apart from our regular Master's Programmes, the University of Gothenburg offers an Executive MBA at the School of Business, Economics and Law. Together with four other universities, we also offer MFAMILY, a Master's Programme in Social Work. MFAMILY students are offered scholarships, within the framework of Erasmus Mundus.
The Gothenburg Executive MBA programme is a part-time management programme conducted in English over 21 months. Unlike full-time master’s programmes, Executive MBA programme participants are admitted primarily based on professional achievements. They continue to work alongside their studies and are generally more experienced and in the 35–50 age range.
Executive MBA programme participants start the programme in the middle of their careers. This enables them to share valuable experiences from various positions and in various professional fields.
The Gothenburg Executive MBA programme is offered on a part-time basis with classroom sessions Thursday–Saturday every third week.
There is one intake per year, starting in October.
All applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree. However, undergraduate studies in business administration are not required and participants come from a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds, such as law, engineering, economics, architecture, and social sciences. In fact, this heterogeneity adds to the quality of the programme.
Admission to the programme is based primarily on professional experience. A minimum of three years of relevant professional experience is required.
Candidates are encouraged to apply well in advance. The programme is in high demand and spots are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Participants are subject to a programme fee and must be fully sponsored by their employers.
