Low Cost MBA in the UK

Study an affordable MBA course at a UK university or business school

A Master of Business Administration is among the most sought-after degrees for business professionals. The MBA is internationally recognised all over the world, enhancing your capabilities while developing the flair necessary for managing and motivating people, but economically, it can be an expensive process.

There are a wide variety of small and private colleges, especially around London, which offer affordable MBA programmes to international students. Many of these colleges have university affiliated MBA degree programmes and offer a cheaper alternative for international students, with tuition fees starting at around £14,000.
