At the Reykjavik University MBA we pride ourselves on having an exceptional faculty. Over half of all courses are taught by our international faculty from some of the best European and American business schools. Our resident Icelandic faculty are recognised to be among the best in their respective disciplines.

Additionally, a few courses are taught by leaders active in the business community in Iceland and abroad. A common characteristic of all RU MBA professors is that they have extensive academic, as well as hands-on, experience and have been recognised for their excellent teaching.
