An MBA built for busy professionals

You’ll study one module at a time. Each module will run for two consecutive months. You will spend three days a month on campus (Thursday to Saturday). This will give you time to engage and network with your tutors and classmates.

The programme will require around ten hours of study each week. It combines:

  • active learning and reflection
  • both theory and practical work
  • group project work
  • individual study

The Bath MBA will build on and develop your leadership and managerial skills.

Consulting project

Taking on the role of a professional consultant at your own organisation, you’ll explore a real business issue that’s of interest to you and your employer. You’ll enhance your learning by applying it to your chosen issue and developing practical solutions.

Worth 33% of your final degree, the project takes place once you have completed the taught modules.
