The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Programme covers a wide range of topics relevant to business in the vibrant global economy. Facilitated by a dynamic online learning environment, the programme stimulates interaction with other course participants, fostering co-operation and the sharing of ideas and experiences.

You are required to complete 18 subjects to complete the programme. Our MBA programme consists of ten compulsory core subjects, seven electives and one research project. The flexibility of elective subjects spanning a diverse selection of topics allows you to pursue your MBA according to your interests and aptitude.

Credit Transfers

U21Global may allow you to transfer credits for relevant subjects completed at accredited institutions within the last five years. Relevant courses at the graduate level from accredited academic institutions with a minimum U21Global grade ‘B' equivalent may be acceptable for credit transfers. In some cases, professional accreditation may also be considered for credit transfers. Credit transfers will not be granted for undergraduate subjects. All applications for credits transfers should be submitted to the Registrar and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.


The duration of the programme depends on the number of subjects you take at one time, and whether you choose to take extended pauses. You have the flexibility of taking up to five years to complete the degree, which can be accomplished by taking one subject per quarter.

On average, the MBA programme will take about two-and-a-half years to complete.
