Executive MBA career development

Giving you the tools you need to boost your career.

Our Executive MBAs are a diverse group. Our students often have different career goals, so we offer a really flexible approach to career development. Whatever you have in mind, we can help you unlock your potential.

Our MBA Careers Team will help you during and after your MBA whether you want to:

  • advance within your current organisation
  • change career completely
  • start your own business

We’ve designed the Executive MBA with input from global employers to make sure you get the knowledge and skills you need to achieve what you want to do.

Your career support

Whether you know what path you want to take or not, we know you want to be a leader. We can help you get there. And we’ll be there for you for three years after you graduate.

Support after you graduate

Your MBA doesn’t end when you graduate. Our MBA Careers Team will be available to you for three years after you finish.

Whether you want introductions to other MBA graduates in our network, a review of your CV or a career planning chat, we’ll be happy to help. We want to be there with you as your career grows.

Personal support tailored to you

Your career goal might be very specific, or you might not be sure what you want to do next. That’s why we offer support that’s made individually for you. Depending on what you’re looking for, we can offer support that includes:

  • CV reviews for promotion opportunities or applications with new organisations
  • mock interviews to help you practise and improve your technique
  • introductions to the School’s alumni network of over 23,000 people
  • access to the University’s Innovations Service for help developing your business idea
  • chances to discuss your plans – and how to achieve them – with career development professionals

Executive coaching

Work one-to-one with an executive coach throughout your MBA.  You’ll be able to discuss your professional and personal development with an independent and fully-accredited coaching expert.

Over your two years with us you’ll meet regularly with your coach, set goals and reflect on your progress.

These confidential sessions are a great way to focus your personal and professional development. You’ll also get help with any current work challenges you’re facing.


Our MBA graduates work all over the world in every sector you could imagine. They include successful executives and entrepreneurs from a range of backgrounds. And they love helping our students be their best.

As an Executive MBA, you’ll have access to our pool of mentors. You’ll be able to get advice from people with relevant skills and experience who have been through it all before.

A lot of our mentors are Bath MBA alumni. And once you graduate you might be able to help mentor the next generation of MBA students.

Personal and professional development programme

Develop the skills and confidence you need to achieve your goals with our programme of timetabled lectures and workshops.

You’ll hear from leading academics from the School of Management as well as expert guest speakers.

The programme currently includes:

  • leadership presence
  • networking
  • presenting and communicating
  • working with the Board
  • data visualisation
  • the Leader as a Coach
  • executive storytelling
We've always recruited MBA graduates to get the very best. The Bath MBA gives us the potential to recruit candidates with the skills to manage our organisation’s future talent.
