Viability of Warwick Business School's full time MBA with regards to sustainable management and strategy


Hi all,
I am an aspiring MBA candidate with a desire to go into consulting and strategy with a niche emphasis on susainability and material as well as human resource management. I don't come from a typical pre-business school background but I am currently in a product management role in my organisation and believe that a good MBA program will give me the boost I need to make a successful career change. My research keeps pointing to the Warwick Business School MBA as one of the best choices in the world for the kind of program I want but I have come across conflicting accounts and experiences and am nervous about making such a big leap. I'd really appreciate any advice that you might be able to give me with regards to the benefits of Warwick's program or even direct me towards other institutions that I can consider. I am aware that Exeter also has a very good standing for 'Green MBAs'. Essentially what am I trying to understand is which MBA program actually offers the curriculum, environment and opportunities that is most conducive to the kind of specialisation I am aiming for.

I'm looking to apply for the 2021 intake at which point I would have 3 years of work experience.

If you research using LinkedIn, do people in such roles have MBAs? I am unsure.

Yes, the general pattern seems to be either a MBA with a sustainability focus or 10+ years of work ex which organically grew into a sustainability centric role.
