The full time Bath MBA takes a customisable, experiential learning approach, looking beyond business processes to emphasise self-awareness, intuition, cross-cultural sensitivity and leadership skills. We also promote a socially responsible and ethical approach to business management.

A broad mix of lectures, projects, workshops, overseas ventures and corporate exposure make the Bath MBA an exciting and highly rewarding year. Our graduates leave Bath feeling more confident and capable and 96% are employed within three months*.

Programme content

The Bath MBA 'spine' runs throughout the year, providing soft skills and leadership training, visiting speakers and business trips, alongside a core curriculum and a wide range of options. And rather than one final project dissertation, you get to work on five different projects over the course of the programme.

There are also opportunities to travel abroad, with our Global Residencies programme, and to take part in an optional 6-month internship when you have finished your studies.
