Executive MBA

Course Details

Over three years we will teach you the foundations of key management areas as well as offer you opportunities to specialise. Study six core modules, your choice of seven electives, and a consultancy project to draw together your learning. To increase your exposure to different international learning opportunities, you will also be required to attend at least one module at a non-UK venue.

Core modules

  • Accounting & Financial Management
  • Economics of the Business Environment
  • Marketing
  • Operations Management
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Strategic Advantage


Elective modules
Every year we offer around 45 elective modules, available through various study routes: delivered here at WBS; or in Germany, India, Ireland, Mexico, Switzerland, and China; by distance learning; delivered online. If you have an energy industry background, you can also choose elective modules from the Global Energy MBA. Please note that availability and delivery modes may vary.

Your dissertation
Your dissertation is the culmination of everything you have learned during your studies. It will demonstrate you can integrate your learning from the individual modules into a cohesive whole, taking multiple perspectives on a business issue and writing around 15,000 words to explore your subject thoroughly.

It might be the incentive you can use to encourage your employer to offer you sponsorship.

Immediate impact
Employers see the benefit really quickly; new ideas often have an immediate and positive impact. You will be more effective, generating new ideas and using proven tools, ideas, and best practice to resolve business issues.

Specific issues
You will address current work issues as part of the study programme. Most sponsored students undertake an internal consulting project focusing on solving real problems facing their organisation.


Let us help you put a case together
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like help preparing a case to put to your employer; we’re here to help. The MBA is a significant investment, both in financial terms and in the time needed to devote to study.

You may need to ask for support from your employer in the following areas.

  • Finance: helping pay your tuition fees, travel, or other expenses
  • Time: giving you enough time away from work to study
  • Development: offering opportunities at work to implement your learning.
