Cranfield School of Management was one of the very first institutions in the UK to offer the MBA. It was designed from the start, not as a theoretical academic ivory tower, but as a meeting place for practitioners and educators, people who wanted to transform the world of work. To this day we recognise both the need to engage closely with the real world of business, and we passionately believe that, ultimately, people make the difference.

For the past 50 years, our triple-accredited MBA programmes have helped our students develop robust leadership skills, and a broad range of management tools and techniques which make them in high demand in the fast-moving world of business, where management skills are often at a premium. Our flagship MBA programmes deliver a practical, purposeful and powerful learning experience, helping to transform today’s high potentials into the leaders of tomorrow.
