Probably the most recognised business qualification globally, the Master’s in Business Administration or MBA, is popular among international students who form a significant proportion of MBA classes worldwide. While the US dominates the global rankings, the UK is home to a considerable number of the top-ranked MBA programmes in the world as are schools in Europe, although Asian institutions are becoming more prevalent. However, the international market for MBAs has been difficult in recent years with many markets showing declining enrolments. This development parallels global trends, with an expansion of courses leading to over-supply, and subsequent doubts about the number of employers willing to hire MBAs at salaries which would justify the time and money invested by graduates. However, recent data shows a rise international applications across the board in Europe (including the UK) and Asia, as well as Canada. In addition, the diversification in MBA delivery mechanisms due to factors such as cost concerns, visa restrictions or the ability to continue working while studying, has presented students with more choices including shorter and more flexible MBA courses, partnership programmes and online study.

This Subject Spotlight research focuses on international student demand for MBAs and examines global demand and mobility trends. In addition to enrolment trends in the UK by study mode, gender, age, leading source countries, growth and declining markets, and regional trends, the report evaluates the competitive set and government policy. A valuable insight for nations and institutions, this report is a resource which can help support the development of strategies to drive MBA recruitment and provide the understanding to explore partnership opportunities, while encouraging skill and knowledge expansion which can help drive growth across diverse sectors worldwide.
