The Bath MBA is a general management programme designed for mature, experienced individuals with a minimum three years post-graduation experience. A broad range of industry sectors are represented on the Bath MBA, which is available in full- and part-time formats and which provides a solid foundation in key business disciplines. Applicants benefit from the cross-fertilisation of ideas and learning from their peers. Our culture and ethos encourage critical thinking, teamwork, creativity and personal development through a small-group, high-contact teaching environment that is based upon debate, active enquiry and interaction between academics and students.
Our one-year Full-time programme attracts a culturally diverse cohort of students drawn from around 20 different countries. A key feature of our part-time, Executive programme is the rapid return on investment to sponsoring organisations. Course assignments are set to enable students to reflect on their learning and add value to their organisation. The Bath MBA Scholarship Fund is available to excellent applicants to both the Full-time and Executive Bath MBA programmes, while our non-UK based Bath MBA Chevening top-up Scholarship scheme provides additional funds for British Council Chevening scholars. Through the generous sponsorship of Moog Inc the school also offers an additional partial scholarship for a student on the full time programme. Other bursaries and scholarships are available through the University's International Office.
