Duration & Content
The Edinburgh Business School (EBS) and its Approved Learning Partner iCon offer the MBA programmes in Greece (as well as the wider region of the Balkans) in a variety of forms through Flexible Distance Learning with full live support.
Students receive live online tuition, workshops, tutorials and examination revision sessions. There is no need to travel to either locally or to Edinburgh. iCon offers full academic and administrative support to students resident in the region. All iCon tutors are approved by the Edinburgh Business School to provide tutorial and pastoral support to its students.
Examinations are organised locally by the University, so students sit their examinations in their own country or anywhere in the world they wish. For example in Greece students amy sit examinations in Athens, Thessaloniki, and other locations 3 times per year (December, April, and August). Currently all examinations are run online.
There are many intakes per year and students may start when it suits them best. The programme is available in English.
