EXECUTIVE MBA AT THE SHARD
The Warwick Executive MBA is a well-established programme that has been delivered over many years. By bringing the Warwick Executive MBA to The Shard, we have created an intensive and demanding two year programme enabling you to take full advantage of our prestigious academics and connect with the wider WBS community.
Our impressive rankings and high quality teaching attract the most ambitious and dynamic executives, ensuring you’re learning both from and with the best. Your class size will typically be between 20 – 40 participants allowing you to fully integrate and build strong connections that last a lifetime.
Studying at The Shard maintains your proximity to some of the most prominent companies in the world whose headquarters lie in the City. Combine this with our Professors of Practice and you will receive first-hand, sector-leading knowledge that you can apply immediately in your global organisation when you get back to the office.
There are two formats available for studying your required modules; evening format, with attendance on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings each week, or the 2+2 format with attendance on Fridays and Saturdays of alternating weeks.
Warwick Business School is part of the University of Warwick, one of the UK’s top universities. Our beautifully landscaped campus is located in the centre of England, within an hour of the city of London and twenty minutes from Birmingham Airport. In 2015 we opened our London base at The Shard which is at the heart of the London Bridge Quarter neighbourhood, one of London’s most vibrant districts. WBS London houses a 100-seat lecture theatre and a smaller one at 80 seats, plus eight seminar rooms and an IT lab.
We strive for excellence in research. We employ a panel of Distinguished Research Environment Professors whose appointments are shared with leading overseas universities. These people concentrate on mentoring and promoting research of international significance and deepening ties with partner institutions.
Our world-class researchers are also superb teachers, skilled at using a variety of teaching methods to engage and instruct. We also employ Professors of Practice, people who combine academic expertise with substantial business experience to aid the practical learning in the classroom.
