Field visits and study trips

Engaging with businesses, business leaders and experts worldwide is a fundamental part of our MBA programme.

During your time on the programme all participants will have the opportunity to take part in international study visits that revolve around new business models in constrained environments and leadership development for experienced managers

New Business Models in Context (open to all participants)

This elective module enables MBA participants to develop first hand understanding of the global economic, societal, environmental and technological challenges faced by organisations in a specific context, and an appreciation of the new business models that are being developed in other parts of the world in response to those challenges. The module, which includes field visits to local organisations and start ups is enriching, practical and interactive and will generate thought-provoking debate and plenty of networking opportunities with like-minded organisations and those individuals who are driving change.

Managing Around the World: International Leadership RoundTables for Experienced Managers (EMBA students only)

Every year Exec MBA participants join a group of international practicing managers and engage with real-life management issues by sharing, reflecting and taking action to understand and improve your business performance. Executives at leading international business schools come together to explore how things get done in a cross-cultural world and how to work more efficiently through networks and relationships. Including field visits to local companies, this event is enriching and interactive and will generate thought-provoking debate and networking opportunities.

Previously, MBA participants travelled to Dublin in 2017, Montreal in May 2016, Yokohama in Japan in April 2015, Bogota in Colombia in April 2014, Stellenbosch in South Africa in 2013 and Slovenia in May 2012 to take part in this innovative programme. They were joined by MBA delegates from business schools in South Africa, Mexico, Bled, Japan and other locations worldwide.

The Roundtables session is allied to The Exeter MBA module ‘Managing Around the World’ and will enhance and extend your learning.
