- The environment – Executive and Flexible Executive MBA
The Executive and Flexible Executive MBA are taught at our Greenlands campus on the banks of the River Thames in Oxfordshire within 30 acres of beautiful conservation parkland. We are less than an hour’s drive from Heathrow Airport, within easy reach of London and close to many major motorway links. It is perfect for quiet reflection as well as stimulating debate with other leading business minds and provides an ideal learning environment for busy executives: you have the space and surroundings required to stretch your mind and think away from the pressures of the office.
Class sizes are deliberately small and delivered in board-room style seminar rooms to facilitate group work and discussion. Resources include the ARC (Academic Resource Centre) that holds books, journals, market research reports, dissertations, working papers and company information. The modern new space provides the perfect place for study, including a 24-hour Quiet Study Space.
Leisure facilities include a fully equipped and professionally staffed fitness centre, outdoor sporting facilities, on-site accommodation and restaurant.
- The environment – Full-time MBA
The Full-time MBA is taught at our Whiteknights site at the beautiful University of Reading
campus. Opened in 2009, the £25 million Business School is one of the newest and most visually impressive buildings on campus. Prominent features include a 250-seat conference standard lecture theatre, seminar rooms equipped with the latest technology, PC labs, dedicated research space, a popular cafe and visitor area and the Academic Resource Centre (ARC).
As a result of our demanding entry requirements and rigorous approach to teaching and learning, we attract only the most ambitious and capable graduates. This provides you with a peer group from whom you can learn and share your knowledge, ideas and experience.
The campus is a short trip to the centre of Reading, a vibrant town on the River Thames that boasts a rich selection of entertainment and leisure activities, from music and bars, to sport and shopping. It is often referred to as the Silicon Valley of the UK, with 13 of the world’s top 30 global brands based in the region, including Vodafone, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle and Intel. Reading is just 25 minutes by train to central London – close enough but not too close!
