About Us

…. making the highest quality management learning and education available to everyone and every organization in the world, wherever and whenever they wish to study and at an affordable cost

Get Started

Marshall Gurney Institute is an innovative, challenging and exciting initiative in the field of management and staff development. Marshall Gurney Institute is different by design – this difference rooted in its belief that development of professionalism, performance and potential should be accessible to all. Marshall Gurney Institute challenges the status quo by doing just that.

The team behind the Institute, all successful business and organizational development professionals and academics in their own rights, recognized that for many organizations and individuals good quality learning and development was becoming too expensive, not always available where and when it was needed, too generic and not addressing individual needs.  It was also becoming too difficult to integrate with work demands and work/life balance.

The idea of Marshall Gurney Institute was born.

Today, we are building Marshall Gurney Institute to be a vibrant, high quality learning institution providing individuals and organizations with the diversity in learning which we believe to be so fundamental, and critical to success and effectiveness.

Marshall Gurney Institute has at its heart a group of Schools each focused on its own specialist area but working closely in a collective, collegiate eco-system, which delivers the flexible, adaptable, quality learning we believe everyone wants and should have.
