Hear what our Global Online students have to say:

“I chose to study with Global Online because the MBA is entirely online. Being in a full-time job means it is difficult to find the time to take up additional learning and I was on the lookout for an MBA which suited my time and needs for years. I found the one offered by Manchester Metropolitan University suited my needs better than that offered by any other university.”
