Executive MBA Overview

This programme is particularly suited to anyone wanting to develop their career and leadership capability with their current employer or make a transition to broaden their skills and connections with a view to starting their own business.

The Executive MBA is studied over 24 months, consisting of 17 residential weekends per year, with each weekend involving intensive study and professional development. These will take place at a specialist conference centre nearby, surrounded by beautiful countryside providing an ideal location to focus on your studies.

Throughout the MBA syllabus Surrey students are given the opportunity to take part in live business projects with partner organisations and extra-curricular activities, for hands-on experience of putting innovative thinking into practice.

Week long workshops are integrated into our programme, dedicated to personal and professional development. These would include confidence building, and the development of practical yet essential business skills. Workshops incorporating mentoring sessions, discussions and debates facilitated by guest speakers and visiting professors.
