The Executive MBA at Winchester is ideal for managers who want to develop the strategic knowledge and skills essential for successful careers in organisations with a global outlook. The course balances theoretical knowledge with grounded discussions of key themes including consumer marketing, leadership and power in organisations, innovation and sustainability, financial management, and the new frontiers in technology and data management. This approach provides you with valuable personal and professional frameworks which can be readily applied to your working environment.

Increase your ability to creatively and systematically apply knowledge from multiple data sources, and develop your capability to communicate ideas clearly in order to influence specialist and non-specialist audiences. This management education programme encourages participation from a variety of working backgrounds, and it is taught in an intensive but supportive small-group environment, providing frequent opportunities for discussion and debate.

You are encouraged to engage with academic literature, up-to-date management case studies and with other students, by reflecting on your own managerial experiences and by applying theories and ideas to your own working environment. Classroom sessions are highly interactive and build on the diversity of students’ work experience for the benefit of the whole group.

Core modules include Sustainability, Ethics and Responsibility, Markets and Consumers, Innovation and Change, and Strategy in Organisations. There are also two non-credit bearing modules that you can take as part of your professional development: Reflecting on Personal and Professional Learning and Reflecting on Personal and Professional Practice. Each core module requires one piece of coursework, and the two reflective modules make up a portfolio demonstrating personal reflection on learning and practice.

The Executive MBA at Winchester is designed to enhance the skills and careers of practising managers and professionals.
