Our world-ranked MBA programmes are built with business in mind, balancing practical experiences, internationally recognised research and teaching with employer-backed knowledge.

We want to help you develop as a responsible leader whose competency and knowledge stretches across multiple management settings from finance to strategy to project management and beyond. We give you the chance to meet and work with businesses from the first week of your degree.  You’ll regularly hear from business speakers and take part in company visits to find out how different businesses operate.

Practical learning is key to the Bath MBA. We focus on the application of academic theory and leading research to real problems to consolidate learning and drive career development.

We are international in our outlook, recruiting faculty from around the world. We have a strong global alumni network, bringing connections from across an international community. We seek to lead the way in innovation, industry partnerships and the strengthening of socially responsible business practices. We have built a strong network of corporate partners, NGOs and government organisations that support our research and influence our teaching. This enables us to deliver forward-looking, practice-relevant education, meaning you can expect a stimulating, varied and demanding experience.

At Bath, we are ambitious. We aim high. It is something we encourage in everyone who is part of the School – both as individuals and in teams. Together, we can do wonderful things.

School Location

The beautiful city of Bath is just a few minutes from campus, surrounded by the rolling green hills of the Somerset countryside. It’s famous for its natural hot springs and Georgian architecture, but it’s also a great place to live, learn and work. The small but busy city offers year-round cultural and social activities from festivals and concerts to museums and galleries. Bath is also a growing centre for innovation, making it an ideal location for creatives and entrepreneurs.

Bath’s location makes it easy for you to visit new places. London is approximately 90 minutes away by train. Our neighbouring city of Bristol is 15 minutes away by train, with Bristol Airport (serving over 100 destinations) less than 20 miles away.
