Sponsor an employee through the Bath MBA

Sponsoring a member of staff to do an MBA can benefit them and your business. We’ve designed our programmes so that they can apply their learning to their work from the moment they start studying with us. Your employee will develop their leadership and communication skills and critical thinking. They’ll learn the latest management theory and learn to apply it to real-world situations.

We’ve designed our Executive MBA specifically for senior executives. It lets participants fit study around a busy professional life. Read more about the programme content.

Our Executive MBA takes two years to complete. Participants study one module per month. They are on campus once a month, from Thursday to Saturday. The course requires around ten hours of work a week.

Key benefits

  • A great way to invest in your staff
  • Students can apply what they learn to your organisation from the moment they start
  • Opportunity for students to research solutions for real issues facing your company

Work with our MBA students

Get access to our brightest students by offering an internship at the end of the programme.

You can employ our students for up to six months. Our internship scheme can offer your organisation:

Key benefits

  • Professional, quality consultancy and research at a fraction of the cost of a mainstream provider
  • No fee, although we ask you to cover your student’s basic expenses
  • Work with students with international experience and perspective
  • Results you can use in a short amount of time

Networking and recruitment opportunities

Give a guest talk

We know our MBA students want to be future business leaders. We want them to learn about the opportunities and challenges companies are facing.

By giving a guest talk to MBA students, you can discuss your organisation and the career opportunities available. These informal events are a great way to introduce yourself and your company to our students.

Come to one of our masterclasses

Our faculty are leading researchers in their fields. Our masterclasses let you experience an MBA lecture at the University. You’ll get the opportunity to meet teaching staff and network with our students and alumni.

If you or an employee is thinking of studying with us, our masterclasses are also a great way to get a taste of the course.

You can also watch most of our masterclasses online live.
