Key features and benefits of the Bath full-time MBA

A top business school at a world ranked university

By studying at Bath, you will join one of the UK’s leading business schools and a top ten UK university. Find out more about our rankings and reputation.

Get practical business experience with our Multi-Project Suite

A lot of MBA programmes finish with a dissertation. We focus on practice-based learning. With our Multi-Project Suite, you’ll work on four very different projects instead of a dissertation. Immerse yourself in topics like entrepreneurship and change management while developing the skills that employers look for.

Work with our business network

We have connections with over 380 organisations. During your MBA, you’ll have opportunities to meet companies and potential employers through:

  • project work
  • regular business speakers
  • an optional paid internship

Responsible leadership. Sustainable management.

We want our students to develop responsible leadership skills. The University’s core values underpin our teaching, giving you the skills and knowledge as a business leader to drive positive change – socially, ethically and environmentally.

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 average class size is 45 students.

Our MBA attracts a mix of nationalities and a diverse range of backgrounds. This means you’ll get a global classroom experience. Our 2022/23 class has students from 13 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

Almost a quarter 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 25,500 graduates, living in more than 148 countries. Connect with and get advice from former students working in almost every industry you can think of.
