The Exeter MBA

Ranked 4th in Europe in the Corporate Knights' Better World MBA Rankings in 2020

The Exeter MBA seeks to play a pivotal role in the preparation of managers from around the world for the leadership positions that they will go on to occupy. The principles underpinning our programme support the potential of business to profitably solve the problems of people and planet, without doing harm.

The Exeter MBA is a demanding one-year full time programme. We are looking for managers prepared to put in the effort and spend time in our community of academics, business partners and fellow MBAs thinking about the role of business leadership in solving global challenges.

That means building a critical awareness of the interdependencies in our global systems, developing an understanding of complexity and above all asking the tough questions that challenge established thinking. We are committed to creating strong and responsible leaders who can pursue this belief. While some may be strong leaders by nature, no one is born a responsible leader. This, too, is hard work.

The Exeter MBA will give you the credibility, confidence and courage to decide what you want to do and then do it. Many of our students start their own business. Others take up positions in business, government and non-profits. We will work with you to align your personal values to your career goals.

As we look to 2021 so we look forward to playing our part in building a more inclusive, just and responsible business world. Come and join us.

The Exeter MBA is proud to present the ambitious, talented and creative professionals who chose to pursue an MBA focussed on responsible leadership. They have each developed an excellent understanding of the ways in which rapid environmental, technological and social changes have disrupted existing business models and are ready to create and collaborate on leading change.

These MBA professionals have worked closely with our expert faculty, their international peers and a wide range of corporate partners to deepen their knowledge, skills and behaviours – the hyperlink on each image takes you to cohort biographies.
