We recruit c.180 MBA students a year, 95 % of which are international. We attract c.800 applications for the MBA each year. Marketing objectives are tied closely with admissions goals: we want to attract a highly diverse cohort, (typically represents c50 nationalities), representing the widest range of industry sectors, and the highest levels of academic ability and previous professional achievements.
Over 60 % of the students that attend the Executive MBA programme travel from outside the UK, from as far afield as China, Australia, Malaysia, North America and both Eastern and Western European countries. They represent a vast array of industries from traditional MBA backgrounds in finance, consultancy etc. to the more unconventional with doctors, vets and ex-professional sports people. The Executive MBA has some of the most diverse students and also the most senior at the business school. This means that the Executive MBA often has a different approach to marketing (both traditional and through social media) than the other programmes at the school.
The Master of Finance is a post-experience programme. In June 2014 it was ranked second out of five in the Financial Times ranking of post-experience master of finance courses.

Its unique selling proposition is as the only post-experience master’s degree in finance taught at a top University.
