The Executive Bath MBA is a flexible, part-time programme that offers the same content as the Full-time Bath MBA and is mostly taught in five-day blocks. Our Executive programme can be fast-tracked into two years of study or completed in up to a maximum of five years.

We can provide you with some suggested routes for completing in 2, 2.5 or 3 years.

How often will I come to campus?

As a part time student, you will spend a total of 16 weeks on campus for taught modules. Most modules (both core and options) are taught in five-day blocks, though some are a little shorter and the nature of what is delivered in any given week may vary. Modules are worth between three and nine credits and you will complete 108 credits in order to finish your MBA.

You will be expected to undertake preparatory work prior to modules and will be assessed through a combination of different methods such as business reports, presentations, in-class tests, exams, films and posters.

Is it for me?

We look for highly motivated people with at least three years’ relevant experience at management level. As well as experience of business, you need to have the confidence to offer and question ideas and present business models, and the ability to develop clear and reasoned arguments.
