Programme structure

The Exeter MBA equips you with the skills, the mindset and the knowledge to contribute innovative solutions to addressing the global economic, financial, social, environmental and technological challenges facing modern day businesses. It is built around the latest thinking and techniques from a wide range of management disciplines. A solid grounding in core business disciplines is acquired through our core modules while elective specialist modules enable you to specialise in your area of interest and tailor the programme to your career needs.

The programme culminates with The Exeter MBA in-company, consultancy project. Please note that the following programme structure is for academic year 2017/18 only and may be subject to review and change for 2018/19 academic year.
