The University of Bath’s online courses are designed especially for working professionals who are strongly motivated to advance their existing career or even pursue a new career pathway through gaining an online MSc in a field of their choice.
Many of the courses have been developed with contributions from employers. Not only do they give students a real-world understanding of their subjects and how to apply their knowledge to their future careers, they provide students with skills that are most in-demand in industries that are rapidly growing around the world.
Not only is course content designed to provide students with the tools they need to succeed, the delivery of the courses also provides students with plenty of opportunities to connect with and learn from fellow learners, many of whom already work — in various business functions — for some of the world’s leading employers. These opportunities can add depth to students’ knowledge and provide connections that could lead to future career enhancing opportunities.
In addition to the strong focus on employability in the course structure and delivery, the university offers specific careers support to help enhance students’ careers. This includes support in writing CVs and cover letters and advice for passing interviews and assessment centres.
Graduates of the university’s online MSc courses have gone on to work for leading employers such as Accenture, BAE Systems, BMW, Electronic Arts, and Nielsen.
