  • Ground breaking new EY Tech MBA by Hult International Business School focused on technology, leadership and business skills
  • Entire program to be delivered online, reflecting wider shift to virtual learning during COVID-19 pandemic
  • Available free of charge to all EY people irrespective of prior qualifications or location

EY, in association with Hult International Business School, announces the first-ever fully accredited virtual corporate Master of Business Administration (MBA). In line with the inclusive culture at EY, it will be available free of charge to all 284,000 EY people in more than 150 countries.

The EY Tech MBA by Hult is focused on helping EY people develop the mindset and skillset to navigate new ways of working, with all learning delivered entirely online. This reflects a broader shift toward virtual learning as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, during which EY has seen a 40%+ uplift in the use of its online learning resources.

EY people studying for the MBA will be able to build their own personal curriculum from a broad range of subject areas, from artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and robotic process automation (RPA) to employee wellbeing, diversity and inclusion and sustainable business practices.

The MBA will be awarded by Hult International Business School, which is renowned for its skill-focused approach to education and commitment to practical learning. Hult is the first triple-accredited business school in the US and regularly ranked as one of the top business schools in the world.

The MBA builds on EY Badges, through which EY people earn digital credentials in future-focused skills through learning and applying their learning in practice. To earn the EY Tech MBA by Hult, EY people will need to complete 16 Badges spanning technology, leadership and business topics as well as a final capstone project. The total commitment is more than 300 hours.

David Barker, Country Managing Partner of EY Cyprus and CESA Corporate Finance Leader for Strategy and Transaction Services, says: “The skills of our people and their ability to provide exceptional service to our clients is what differentiates EY in an increasingly competitive environment. The EY Tech MBA by Hult is one more step in our efforts to enable EY people to further develop business mindsets and harness the power of new technologies, so as to help our clients address the challenges of tomorrow. This is an exciting moment for EY and its people.”
