University of Exeter launches Global Executive MBA in Defence & Space

The University of Exeter, in partnership with the University of South Australia (UniSA) and Carnegie Mellon (Tepper Business School), has launched a new Executive MBA programme aimed at professionals in the Defence and Space sectors.

Stimulated by the AUKUS military alliance, the Global Executive MBA (Defence and Space) is designed for mid-level executives in organisations with a long-term interest in these fields. The 18-month programme provides a master's level education in industry-specific topics including cyber security, space systems, geopolitics and Defence procurement, along with strategic business topics such as leadership, strategy and finance.

The programme aims to create long-lasting international networks around Defence and Space-related projects. Participants will complete the programme part-time, with study in Australia, the UK and the USA building an international cohort with strong representation from all three nations.

For more information on the programme please visit the UniSA website.
