Course Description

The One Planet MBA launches in September 2011. Working in partnership with WWF, the global conservation organisation, our vision is a completely new type of MBA producing unique planet-minded business leaders. Our current innovation cohort have worked alongside the Exeter faculty and WWF to develop the full programme. The One Planet MBA from the University of Exeter Business School gives you an opportunity to really stand out in the global marketplace. Available in full-time and executive formats, it?s a first class business programme, delivered by world class faculty ? that?s designed to help you get ahead and get noticed. Why One Planet? ?One Planet? means a very specific kind of education. It refers to the fact that business planning of the future must recognise that we only have one planet?s worth of resources, yet we are currently collectively using over one and a third planets, a figure which increases daily. The combination of very significant and asymmetric population growth over the next thirty years, the inevitable tendency for increased consumption of natural resources, and expected developments in the political economy make it essential that business people be educated in a manner, and with a curriculum, very different from that of the past. The One Planet MBA will address this. The Experience Our vision is that the One Planet MBA will be a traditional MBA with all the expected ingredients but global in outlook, developing leaders and managers capable of running organisations in a culturally diverse, resource-constrained world, influenced by radically different values and concerns from those of the recent past. You, as a graduate, will be capable of the business skills upon which MBAs have traditionally been based but will demonstrate a fully comprehensive grasp of global issues and cultures. The One Planet MBA will be a distinctive and innovative model for management education, transforming paradigms and priorities in the student experience, curriculum, and educational processes. The MBA will be developed at Exeter, in partnership with WWF, an innovation cohort, and other organisations, some of whom will participate in the development phase (2010/11) as well as the long-term delivery and growth. Executive The executive programme is designed for those who wish to remain working while completing their MBA. Delivered over a period of just over two years, the programme also starts in September. You will take 12 or 13 modules (depending on the credit weighting of the modules you choose). Each module will be delivered intensively over a period of 4 ? 5 days. You will take 6/7 modules in the first year and 6/7 in the second year, with a gap of around 6 - 8 weeks between each module. Your MBA project can be started at any time in the second year and can be submitted after the completion of your final taught module. The Exeter MBA How to apply Our central Graduate School Office give priority to all application forms for MBA programmes, and all admissions decisions are made by the Director of the MBA Programme.
