By studying at Bath, you will join one of the UK’s leading business schools and a top ten UK university (THE Table of Tables 2020).

Get practical business experience

We focus on practice-based learning. With our Multi-Project Suite, you’ll work on five very different projects and develop the skills employers are looking for.

Work with our business network

We have connections with over 300 organisations. During your MBA, you’ll have opportunities to meet companies and potential employers through:

  • project work
  • regular business speakers
  • the optional international business programme
  • an optional paid internship

A small and diverse class

We keep our class size smaller than some other top MBA programmes. A more intimate learning environment means more contact time with faculty and other students. Our 2019/20 class has 52 students.

Our MBA attracts a mix of nationalities and a diverse range of backgrounds. This means you’ll get a global classroom experience. Our 2019/20 class has students from 15 different countries.

Skills training

Employers want MBA graduates with well-developed leadership and management skills. Skills training forms an integral part of the Bath MBA. Our MBA Careers team offers lots of opportunities to help support your career development throughout your year.

Customise your MBA

One third of the programme is dedicated to optional units so you can tailor your MBA to your career goals. Make the Bath MBA your own by studying the subjects you want to from our range of options.

Learn from leading faculty

You’ll learn from leading experts in their fields. We incorporate the latest thinking and research into the programme and the classroom, keeping our MBA fresh and relevant.

Join our global network

Our supportive alumni network comprises over 20,000 graduates, living in more than 130 countries. Connect with and get advice from graduates working in every industry you can think of.

Maximise your career potential

We want to help you make the most of your potential and get a great job after your MBA. You’ll get a year full of events and one-to-one coaching, and guidance from the MBA Careers Team.

Whether you want to change or fast-track your career, relocate, or set up your own business, we can help you.

An accredited degree may entitle you to work in a specific profession within the UK, and abroad (where there are reciprocating arrangements with professional bodies in other countries).

The requirements to practise a profession vary from country to country. If you wish to practise your profession outside the United Kingdom, you are advised to confirm that the UK professional qualification you seek is valid in the country in which you are intending to work.
