Our Full-time MBA is the catalyst you need to transform your career. Whether you want to change job function, sector, location or simply increase your earning potential, we will give you the confidence and skills to achieve your potential.
Our 12 month programme is intense, fast-paced and captivating. With international travel, unlimited coaching, in-depth work with leading companies and a peer group from a range of different industry sectors and cultures, you will grow both personally and academically. Alongside lectures, seminars, group exercises, case studies and projects, you will have the opportunity to participate in one of the most innovative learning experiences available.
As part of the University of Warwick, we have a long standing reputation for innovation. Our desire to do things differently lies in our foundations, research and our methods of teaching. This is evidenced by our research in areas such as Big Data and Behavioural Science, in the way leadership is embedded in, rather than added on to the Warwick Full-time MBA and in our teaching which uses scenarios and elements of acting to discover new approaches to the biggest business issues.
Entrepreneurial in spirit and practice, we break new ground with our research. We constantly challenge ourselves to take teaching and learning beyond the classroom by bringing in leading experts as Professors of Practice and visiting lecturers. Our real world knowledge married with our inter-disciplinary, global research enables us to build valuable links with international organisations like Amazon, Gallup and Capco.

We are one of the few institutions to offer an assessed module in leadership.

You will spend a week with one of our international partner institutions, exploring business challenges with a variety of companies in addition to lectures and seminars. You will also have access to unlimited one-to-one coaching with the careers team throughout the year.
Some of our Full-time MBA participants have joined us with the aim of setting up or developing an existing business venture. Many have gone on to do remarkable things, from bringing safe bio-fuel to homes in South Africa to setting up a digital platform for enabling easier tendering processes. We offer students the opportunity to specialise their MBA within entrepreneurship where two elective modules and final consultancy project will focus on this specialist area.
You will have at least three opportunities to work on client-based projects during your year with us, enabling you to gain practical consultancy, stakeholder management and influencing skills through direct experience. These can be used as a route into new sectors and industries. We will also introduce you to companies, such as Microsoft, Ford and HSBC, through recruiter events, student projects and teaching support.
Creativity and innovative thinking, along with traditional analytical skills, are a must in the business world, whether your vision is to establish your own start-up or join a major corporate in a leadership role.
