Executive MBA

How we teach

The Warwick Executive MBA is the perfect way to learn face-to-face without the need to step out of full time work. It will provide you with a diverse network of students, industry experts, career specialists, lecturers and alumni to learn from, share ideas with and to support you in your future career.

On campus learning

Required modules are taught in four day blocks, usually Wednesday to Saturday, at our University of Warwick campus, giving you the chance to escape the pressures of your job and truly immerse yourself in the modules.  

Around four weeks before each module, learning materials are provided via our bespoke online learning environment, my.wbs. Modules consist of 30 hours face-to-face teaching, giving you the opportunity to discuss and apply theories within the classroom.

On campus you will participate in lectures, work as part of a syndicate group, and prepare group assignments. You’ll have the chance to carry on the conversations outside of the classroom as you socialise with your fellow MBA students, and feel a real sense of camaraderie through your shared experience. After teaching has finished, you will have four weeks to complete an individual assignment.

Tailored knowledge development

Our elective modules allow you to customise your MBA according to your interests and career needs. Most MBA participants also undertake an internal consulting project which focuses on solving real issues facing their organisation, or an industry/organisation in which they wish to work as the basis for their dissertation. This can be a useful incentive to encourage sponsorship from your employer, demonstrating how you can apply your MBA directly to the running of your organisation.


We take a creative approach to teaching, using film, drama, business simulation software and role play on different modules during the course. This allows you to apply your learning to real life scenarios, try out new leadership techniques and generate creative responses to challenges. By building your leadership and management skills you can increase your confidence and prepare for any scenario.

Online learning

Through my.wbs you will be able to access excellent interactive resources, online study materials and e-books, full-text articles from a wide range of business and management journals and the excellent University of Warwick library including many databases, and over 30,000 full-text electronic journals.

If you choose any online electives you will use our virtual classroom, wbsLive for lectures with Q&As, tutor-led seminars, or focused revision sessions. Sessions are recorded and available to view later.

World leading academics

We believe that business should be used as a power for good. Our faculty of research and teaching academics are constantly striving for excellence in everything they do, from the latest ground breaking research impacting society, to inspiring our students.

All of our academics are research active, producing cutting-edge theories with real-world impact while our Professors of Practice are all successful senior business and industry practitioners, who are experts in facilitating research.
