University of Bath School of Management

The MBA at the Bath School of Management comes in two forms: Full-Time and Executive. The Full-Time MBA gives students the chance to gain practical business experience thanks to the school’s connections with over 300 companies. Small class sizes mean more contact time with both faculty and students, whilst one third of the curriculum is customisable, meaning you can develop the skills necessary to thrive in your chosen industry. The Executive MBA, meanwhile, is a part-time course aimed at more experienced professionals. During the program you’ll have the opportunity to become a professional consultant at your current place of work, exploring a business issue of interest to both you and your employer in a mutually beneficial arrangement. It’s a typically unique feature of one of the most distinctive MBA programs you’re likely to find.

The MBA is just one of several highly-ranked programs at the Bath School of Management. It offers courses that are ranked in the top five of all three major national rankings (The Times and Sunday Times, The Complete University Guide and The Guardian), whilst its MBA Class of 2019 can point to an average salary increase of 109% as evidence of the program’s effectiveness. The School of Management is part of The University of Bath, generally considered to be one of the best universities in the UK. Its student population of 18,000 equates to around 20% of the total population of Bath, which emphasises the influence and importance of the university within its city context.

Bath itself is one of England’s most striking cities. Almost four million visitors pass through here annually to enjoy the splendour of its Georgian architecture, the Roman Baths after which the city is named and the centuries-old Bath Abbey church. Yet beyond the historical tourist attractions it is also a prosperous city that houses two world-class universities as well as flourishing creative, IT and publishing industries. Although Bath has a population of less than 90,000 it is a bustling city and lies just 20 minutes away from the larger city of Bristol, which adds to the region’s pool of employment opportunities and cultural offerings.
