FAQs

The LBS MBA is aimed at people who have gained some high-quality work experience, but who are at a relatively early stage in their career. It is suitable for people who want to increase their knowledge of business and management to:

  • enhance their existing career and accelerate their promotion prospects
  • change career by changing function, or industry
  • start their own business.

The highly international nature of our programme will appeal if you are looking for a career with international mobility. Above all, the MBA prepares you for general management with a global outlook rather than US-centric or Euro-centric one

Everyone who joins the MBA has different goals, pressures and learning styles while studying. Our intensely experiential programme balances theory and practice with a structure you can tailor to meet your leadership and development needs.

Year One gives you a rigorous and analytical grounding in the techniques and frameworks of global general management. Our Business Fundamentals core and Tailored core enable you to create a programme to suit your goals and development needs.

In Year Two you continue developing your goals. Diverse elective choice reflects the breadth of our faculty's thought leadership. Deepen expertise in a specific area, or broaden your learning. You extend your global focus, engaging with leading companies around the world on a Global Business Experience, or studying with one of our 30+ academic partners on International Exchange. Many students take more internships and demonstrate their commercial acumen working on a real-world commercial challenges in our Business Project elective.

The MBA programme has 15, 18, and 21-month exit points. These time frames capture the amount of study you are expected to undertake. I.e. if you start in August 2021, you may be permitted to finish your studies in December 2022.

 

In order to graduate from the programme at one of our early exit points, you will need to have met all programme requirements: pass your Business Fundamentals, Tailored Core and a minimum of 10 elective courses, and complete experiential programme elements like Leadership Launch and the Global Business Experience.

 

Please note that, by choosing an early exit, you may limit your choice of available electives. Those going on International Exchange will not be able to exit the programme at 15 months.

Most teaching takes the form of structured lectures and case studies. The style is participatory and classes frequently include case analysis and discussions. There are also many projects and group work, field investigations and visits, as well as individual research and simulations.

As a general management programme, the MBA is good preparation for any job that requires general management competence. The MBA caters to people working across an increasingly wide range of industries – everything from finance, consultancy, manufacturing, to healthcare, tech and the luxury goods industry. Increasingly, some students use our MBA to help establish their own venture or return to help run a family business.
