Postgraduate courses

Our courses will give you the skills needed to work in multinational corporations, and be a successful decision-maker in an increasingly complex, global business environment.

Full-time and executive MBA

Being connected matters in a world that is experiencing the dramatic effect of globalisation. We make sure that while you are studying you are connecting to business and industry with an international perspective. The pace of change is quickening and our full-time and executive MBA can help you keep up with this.

Outstanding teaching

Based on the evidence available, the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Panel judged that the University of Surrey delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK.

Placements

With some of our courses, you’ll have the opportunity to complete an optional placement, where you can apply what you’ve learnt in a relevant organisation and gain practical experience for your CV.

We provide support and guidance to help you secure a placement alongside access to vacancy portals, which include thousands of placement opportunities every year and let you discover companies we’re connected with. We can also vet and support you for a placement at a new company that you approach. 

If you choose and secure a placement, you’ll complete nine months of teaching and then spend six months working on placement. This means you’ll complete the course in 15 months instead of 12.

Study abroad

You have the opportunity to acquire international experience as part of your studies, by taking advantage of exchange agreements with our partner universities.

Our study abroad opportunities will provide you with unique access to experience new cultures, learn new languages, improve interpersonal and communication skills, enhance your employability, expand your learning, network on an international level, and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
