About Bath School of Management

Set in a leafy campus overlooking a beautiful sandstone City, the University of Bath School of Management is one of the UK's leading business schools, with a strong reputation for research and an MBA programme that the Economist ranks overall 2nd in the UK, 21st in the globe, and 3rd in the world for salary increase.

In term time the postgraduate business community buzzes with 200 MBA students, 370 Master’s students and 210 full- and part-time research students. More than 1,000 undergraduates add to the energetic environment.

The faculty is comprised of 90 teaching and research staff with a support team of around 70. Research, across all areas of management, is structured around issue-based, multi-disciplinary groups, with a number of research centres such as the impressive Centre for Business Organisations & Society (CBOS), which undertakes research that informs decision makers in government, companies and finance houses of the changing nature of business responsibilities and the merits of social responsiveness.

Designed for mature individuals with several years’ relevant management experience, the full-time Bath MBA is an intensive one-year of study. It is a rigorous, academic programme taught within a high contact environment - a key differentiator is the dynamic exchange and debate that takes place during lectures and associated networking. It is therefore important that candidates have experience of business, the confidence to develop arguments and present business models individually and as part of a team.

The Executive Bath MBA has the same course content as the full time programme and is mostly taught via 5-day modules (Monday to Friday) on campus at Bath. Our Executive, part-time route is fast tracked into 2 years of study with the flexibility to extend and complete in up to a maximum of 5 years.

Following the part-time route, candidates take the equivalent of 12 weeks of study on campus at Bath to cover Stages 1 and 2. They then have up to 5 months to complete their 'final project or dissertation' at Stage 3. Attendance on campus is not normally required during the final stage of the programme.
