The full-time MBA programme is taught in weekday classes during one year. Though there may be some weekend teaching of some elective modules.
The executive MBA is taught at weekends and a maximum of four working days over a two-year period. On some elective modules you will mix with students from the full-time MBA.

Kingston Business School uses a variety of techniques to assess you to ensure that you are learning and progressing well through the course. We work hard to ensure our assessment methods – like everything else on this MBA course – is relevant to skills and experiences you will need in your career. You will be assessed on written assignments, discussions, group work, presentations and exams. Preparation for assessments will involve either group work or working on your own.
Each intake is of around 20 students. This small size means students and staff can all get to know each other well and the course creates a tight study group community and a strong alumni network.
The core modules are run throughout the year on a 'carousel' system. This means that full-time students who join in January, for example, will be studying some of their earlier core modules with students who joined in September and some of their later core modules with students who join the following September. This gives students the benefit of a wider range of contacts and experiences to draw from in class discussions, and helps students grow and learn through the course.
The MBA Careers Week is an integral part of the MBA timetable. The MBA Careers Week is designed to offer you insight, training, new perspectives and strategies for your own individual job search and professional development. It includes mock assessment centres, work with professional recruiters, the 'MBA grill' and coaching on how to position yourself in the jobs market.
Full-time students will also undertake a week-long annual field trip in Europe. While executive programme participants will undertake a full weekend of leadership and professional development within the London area.
The Kingston MBA is also delivered in Moscow. The programme is the top ranked MBA in Russia and attracts students from throughout the country. All participants can join our MBA programme in the city of Moscow for some or all of their elective modules. Kingston Business School University will provide help with visas and accommodation.
