Here are some questions we generally get asked about studying an online MBA
  • The Global MBA programme from LSBF has 16 specialistions including Carbon Management, Entrepreneurship and Oil, Gas & Energy Management. The highly specialised MBA in Banking & Finance from LIBF has been developed specifically for finance professionals to excel in their career. Both are accredited in the same way as their on-campus counterparts, meaning that you will graduate with the same degree as students who study for a traditional campus degree.

  • Studying online with an MBA distance learning provider gives you enormous flexibility, because of the freedom to study from anywhere in the world. Most importantly, you’ll be able to schedule your studies around your pre-existing professional and personal commitments. 


  • Programme registration is open throughout the year, and new students are enrolled every month. However, specific starting dates vary from programme to programme, from university to university.

  • The duration of an online MBA will vary between educational institutions. Usually an MBA takes anywhere from 18 months to the full 3-year MBA study period, depending on how much time you are able to dedicate to your studies.

  • MBA programmes in general usually have Finance, Marketing, Operations and Leadership modules in the curriculum, but the full programme specifications will differ across universities and business schools.

The MBA in Banking & Finance from LIBF has already been tailored to reflect the knowledge in demand from the banking and financial services industry.   Both programmes have been designed to give students a well-rounded and comprehensive knowledge of modern business.
