Lancaster University Management School
A Reputation for Action
Since its inception in 1989 the Lancaster MBA has kept action and engagement with real world business and management issues at the heart of its programme. There are three practical elements based on work with organisations varying greatly in length and focus. All three will look great on your cv as evidence of real hands on ability.
New Venture Challenge
Student teams spend the first term working with clients sourced by LUMS’s Department for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development who are preparing for start ups or new business developments. Students help them draw up marketing and business plans.
Each team is dropped into a consultancy situation and learns the capacity to be immediately effective in supporting and leading change. Don’t worry, we prepare you with customised modules which develop your skills.
You will expand your consultancy skills by undertaking a group client project. In addition you will produce an extended individual assignment reflecting on management theories in practice, drawing on your consulting experiences during the programme.
