Our part-time programme is taught via 5-day modules (Monday to Friday) on campus at Bath compressed into 2 years with the flexibility to extend and complete in up to a maximum of 5 years. In total, participants take around 70 days to complete the BATH MBA at the Bath Campus. Students also have up to 5 months to complete their 'final project or dissertation' during which attendance on campus is not normally required.
The Executive Bath MBA has the same course content as the full time programme and is mostly taught via 5-day modules (Monday to Friday) on campus at Bath. Our Executive, part-time route can be fast tracked into 2 years of study with the flexibility to extend and complete in up to a maximum of 5 years.
Following the part-time route, candidates take the equivalent of 12 weeks of study on campus at Bath to cover Stages 1 and 2. They then have up to 5 months to complete their 'final project or dissertation' at Stage 3. In terms of time ‘out of the office’ we normally advise that prospective students should factor 70 days in total; to include all taught modules on campus, syndicated or peer learning groups, project workshops and an allocation for the 4 exams associated with the programme. Attendance on campus is not normally required during the final stage of the programme.
