Finalist at the AMBA Golden Awards

In January 2017, at London’s Savoy Hotel, The Bath MBA was a Finalist at the AMBA Golden Awards, having been shortlisted for the prize alongside just six other leading business schools.

This prestigious award is a celebration of innovation and radical thinking in MBA delivery across all areas of the business school and has been developed to recognise and reward brilliant new practices. It promotes the values of taking risks in pursuit of the new.

Professor Alistair Brandon-Jones, Associate Dean for Post-Experience Education, said:

I am delighted that Bath School of Management has been recognised for its on-going innovation to the Bath MBA. We're very proud of the dynamic nature of the programme and the new innovations we've recently seen such as the Bath Spine, multi-project suite, optional paid internships, and some of the highest levels of customisation on any MBA worldwide. We look forward to seeing the Bath MBA continue its journey over the coming years!

Every year, the AMBA Awards are a celebration of the very highest achievements in leadership, accomplished by the business schools which form the AMBA global network, and their MBA students. Three other awards were presented: MBA student of the Year Awards; MBA Employer Award; MBA Entrepreneurial Venture Award.
