How we develop our global talent Working in a multinational cohort alongside academic faculty, business leaders and MBA alumni, our participants have access to inspiring conversations, challenging ideas, and innovative thinking. This vibrant learning environment provides the stimulus and support needed to prepare them for the impact that they will make in their future employment. The Exeter MBA places personal transformation at its heart, supporting participants to develop the skills and mind-set needed to lead within an uncertain global environment.

The existing knowledge, skills, professional experience and personal attributes of our participants forms the focus of ongoing personal reflection which results in an enhanced self-awareness. This stronger sense of “self� coupled with new knowledge gained from across their programme equips aspiring leaders with the confidence and tenacity to apply their learning to real-world issues. By working with our leading partners on real business challenges, our participants have developed the essential communication, collaboration, and creative-thinking skills needed to bring value to their Consultancy Projects. Each participant is unique. What they share is a deep sense of purpose in their work, creating positive impact and creating change – for good.

The world has enough people with all the answers. What we develop at Exeter are leaders able to ask the right questions. Jacqueline Bagnall The Exeter MBA Programme Director
