Yes this is possible by creating a new axes which takes up much of the figure. Then a title for this axes. Turning the axes Visible property 'off' will make the axes "disappear", but the title will inherit this property and you will need to turn the Visible property for the title back 'on'.
x = 0:0.001:2*pi;
y1 = cos(x);
y2 = sin(x);
f = figure;
a = axes;
t1 = title('Global Title');
a.Visible = 'off'; % set(a,'Visible','off');
t1.Visible = 'on'; % set(t1,'Visible','on');
Note: In prior versions you may need to use the set command as done in the comments
You may need to tweak the Position property of the axes, a, so the titles do not overlap.

If you have the Bioinformatics Toolbox you can also use suptitle.
suptitle('I''m a Super Title')

Do you need a title for printing/exporting purposes or do you need a title in order to distinguish between multiple figures created by the code you're executing? In the latter case another alternative is to set the Name property of the figure.
f = figure;
f.Name = 'First figure';
