In common with most European MBA programs, the full-time offering at Warwick Business School is an intensive 12-month effort. Students come to the University of Warwick’s campus in Coventry, about two hours north of London, in September and graduate in August. The school offers students the option to extend the program to 15 months by taking on an international exchange at a large number of schools all over the world, including the University of Chicago’s Booth School and Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.

The program kicks off with a solid foundation of seven core modules that teach the business basics: accounting and financial management, economics of the business environment, marketing, modelling and analysis for management, operations management, organizational behaviour, and strategic advantage.

Then, you get to pick six elective modules from a menu of 39 different courses, ranging from Advanced Corporate Finance to Supply Chain Management. There are some fairly compelling electives here including “Managing the Digital Workplace,” “Leadership and the Art of Judgement,” and “Cross-Cultural Management.” The latter course dovetails nicely with the fact that 91% of the MBA students at Warwick come from outside the U.K.

The program also features consulting project that requires both a management report and what Warwick calls “an academic dissertation.” Don’t let the word “dissertation” put you off. The school says it needs to be about 15,000 words and its purpose is to show your “understanding and logical application of relevant concepts.” Students have worked on projects with such world-class companies as Accenture, Deloitte, IBM, Pepsico, Rolls-Royce, Siemens and Volvo.

Despite the 12-month schedule, Warwick says that students can take summer internships with companies of up to 12 weeks in length while they are working on their consulting projects.

Ranking Analysis:

Warwick is moving on up in the rankings. Between 2012 and 2013, the school jumped 3 spots in the Poets&Quants ranking of non-U.S. MBA programs: It shot from 16th place to 13th place. Even more impressively, the school went from 33rd place to 16th place between 2011 and 2012.

Warwick’s latest gain is a result of its ranking in Forbes, where the school rose from No. 8 in 2012 to No. 7 in 2013. Its position stayed the same in the Financial Times and the Economist, and it is not ranked by Businessweek.
