AMBA-ACCREDITED

Exeter University Business School


Age: The MBA has been running for 23 years.

History: Exeter has long had a reputation for economics, accounting and finance. The MBA is now part of the University of Exeter Business School, which was formed in 1997.

Address: In the south-west of England, on the university's Streatham campus in Exeter.

Ambience: The campus provides a calm study environment. Students can enjoy the resources and facilities of the university.

Vital statistics: Offers a full-time, modular and part-time general MBA with the option to specialise in financial management, marketing management, entrepreneurship and innovation, or leadership. A maximum intake of 70 ensures quality of teaching. Other postgraduate programmes are available in financial analysis and fund management, finance and investment, marketing and financial services, international management, marketing, and tourism.

Added value: The One Planet MBA launches in September 2011. Working in partnership with WWF the school envisages a completely new type of MBA producing unique planet-minded business leaders. An "innovation cohort" is developing the programme alongside the Exeter faculty and WWF.

Easy to get into? For the MBA, you'll need a second-class honours degree or international equivalent from a recognised university. Alternatively, a professional equivalent and/or five years' work experience at managerial level should suffice. A GMAT score of 600 could also be requested. In all cases, a minimum of three years' supervisory or managerial experience is required.

Glittering alumni: Admiral Sir Jonathan Bond, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff; Wol Kolade, managing director, ISIS Equity Partners; Sean Kelly, group chief executive, CSS Stellar; and John Hutson, chief executive, JD Weatherspoons.

International connections: Typically, 40 per cent of full-time MBA students come from overseas.

Student profile: The average age of MBA students is 36 and the ratio of men to women is 60:40.

Cost: The full- and part-time MBA both cost £17,500. The modular option is £18,500. Scholarships and bursaries are available.

Return on investment: Many of Exeter's MBA graduates are in senior management positions throughout the world. The lecturers are highly rated, often with international reputations, and the school has impressive academic and IT resources, including the Thomson Reuters Financial Information Laboratory, which has been installed with the latest software. Access to online electronic journals is provided through the main library website.

Who's the boss? Professor Richard Lamming is the director of the school.
