University of Bath MBA scholarships

We have funding available to support talented MBA candidates from around the world.

We offer scholarships that could help you to invest in your future and reap the rewards. These can cover all or part of your fees and are available to students from the UK and abroad.

If we award you a scholarship, you’ll be expected to act as a Bath MBA ambassador to help us attract future MBA candidates. This is a fantastic way of using your experiences to support new MBA graduates in their decision to choose Bath.

To be eligible for a scholarship you must have received an offer to study on the full-time MBA or Executive MBA programme.

Applying for a scholarship

We will contact you with details on how to apply for a University of Bath Scholarship once we’ve reviewed your MBA programme application and if you are invited to interview.

Local Corporate Partnerships

We’re committed to our community.

Our MBA corporate partnerships encourage organisations to consider their long-term strategy for growth. They can help you develop talent from within and with attracting the next generation of leaders.

We work with you to help identify future leaders and deliver practical education that meets your operational and strategic needs.

Your organisation may qualify for a substantial University-funded bursary if:

  • your organisation is active in the South West of the UK
  • you enrol two or more MBA students in one academic year

You’ll also benefit from student project work, MBA recruitment opportunities and other engagement.
