Sponsor an employee through the Bath MBA

Sponsoring a member of staff to do an MBA can benefit them and your organisation. Your employee will develop their leadership skills, communication skills and critical thinking. They’ll be able to apply their learning to their work from the moment they start studying with us.

Designed for senior executives, our blended learning Executive MBA lets participants fit study around a busy professional life. Read more about the programme content.
