The Bath MBA equips students with both theoretical and practical knowledge as well as the professional and personal skills to manage strategically and successfully in a constantly changing environment.
Are you are a team player seeking an MBA that will challenge you to reflect upon the links between business and society? Are you an aspiring entrepreneur or seeking career transformation? Are you looking to develop your leadership and interpersonal skills?
The ethos of The Bath MBA is to look beyond business processes and techniques to emphasize self-awareness, intuition, cross-cultural sensitivity and entrepreneurship skills as well as a socially responsible and ethical approach to business and management. Designed for mature individuals with several years’ relevant management experience, the full-time Bath MBA is an intensive one-year of study. It is a rigorous, academic programme taught within a high contact environment - a key differentiator is the dynamic exchange and debate that takes place during lectures and associated networking. It is therefore important that candidates have experience of business, the confidence to develop arguments and present business models individually and as part of a team.
Following the part-time route, participants take the equivalent of 70 days to complete the BATH MBA at the Bath Campus. Students have up to 5 months to complete their 'final project or dissertation' during which attendance on campus is not normally required.
