Everything you need

Continuing to work while you study also means you can apply the theories to your day-to-day work and reflect upon the practicalities of the real world; it makes theory accessible and relevant.

We enable you to study broadly in your own time, in your own way, while offering you some structure as well as tutor support and peer interaction.

We offer you a sociable environment in which to raise problems, clarify ideas, and discuss issues. There are face-to-face group work opportunities during modules, and there are also very valuable group work skills to be gained through using our online classroom, wbsLive, which allows you to meet up with fellow students online and work in real time.

Our part-time study modes are interchangeable to enable you to factor in other responsibilities, like your family and workplace commitments. Switch between distance learning and the Warwick Executive MBA with its block release format.

Study your way

We recommend three years to complete the study programme part-time. Making time for study, work, family, and friends is not easy, but life is for living. People like you want to fit a lot in, and we want your studies with us to be an enjoyable time of your life. So use our flexibility.

Mix study modes
As a DLMBA student you will study one module by 5-day face-to-face format. You can choose from a selection of 5-day modules offered exclusively to DLMBA students or, when it comes to electives and subject to the availability of places, you can choose from a range of 30+ Executive MBA modules.

Speed up
You can complete the programme more swiftly by taking some or all of your elective modules face-to-face in five-day residential blocks.

Slow down
We know that circumstances sometimes change; weddings, babies, or promotion can knock you off-track. Sometimes taking longer to complete your studies might be the best way to get what you want in the long term and we’re here to help you achieve your aims. You’ll find we’re always ready to listen and help you find a way through.
