We focus on practice-based learning. With our Multi-Project Suite, you’ll work on several different projects and develop the skills employers are looking for.

- project work

A small and diverse class
We keep our class size smaller than some other top MBA programmes. A more intimate learning environment means more contact time with faculty and other students. Our MBA class typically has around 50 students from across the world.
Our MBA attracts a mix of nationalities and a diverse range of backgrounds. This means you’ll get a global classroom experience.
Employers want MBA graduates with well-developed leadership and management skills. Skills training forms an integral part of the Bath MBA. Our MBA Careers team offers lots of opportunities to help support your career development throughout your year.

Nearly a quarter of the programme is dedicated to optional units so you can tailor your MBA to your career goals. Make the Bath MBA your own by studying the subjects you want to from our range of options.
