Notes for Editors

The highly-rated Bath MBA is a post-experience degree designed for people with a minimum of three years’ relevant management work experience. It looks beyond business processes and techniques to emphasise self-awareness, intuition, cross-cultural sensitivity and entrepreneurship skills, as well as a socially responsible and ethical approach to business and management.

Our one-year Master’s degrees combine high academic learning with practical skills, making graduates ‘work ready’. For more information on all these programmes, please visit our programmes page.

As well as prize sponsorship, opportunities for organisations to work with the School exist in the form of undergraduate and MBA student projects and recruitment, tailored executive development programmes and academic consultancy. All these services are available as part of our Corporate Partner Scheme. Please visit our Business Connections pages for further information.
