MBA Programme details

The London Business School MBA is a full-time programme with exit points at 15, 18 and 21 months. Our curriculum supports your individual development needs through an increased choice of dynamic learning methods.

MBA Pre-programme and orientation

Leadership Launch runs alongside your academic studies and provides the opportunity to establish your own leadership personal development plan. You learn and practice the tools and techniques that will accelerate your leadership career and enhance your effectiveness as a leader.

The Leadership Launch elements of Global Leadership Assessment for Managers (GLAM), the Leadership Away Day and your first London Talk will all form part of your Orientation week, so you will begin to enhance your leadership skills from the outset of the programme.

Year one

Academically rigorous, the first year core courses of the MBA concentrate on three general management themes: Tools and Techniques, Managing the Organisation, and Engaging with the World.  Faculty use a range of learning methods, drawing upon their direct links to industry and commerce.

During year one you will also engage in real-world business perspectives as you participate in the London Business Experiences course.


Most students choose to undertake an internship during their summer break. Others may consider applying to the Entrepreneurship Summer School or the Summer Consulting Team.

Year two

Find your own voice for your future career in the business world as you customise the MBA through a choice of electives and experiential learning techniques.  Many students also study abroad on an International Exchange Programme.

Year Two also provides the unique opportunity to gain a global business perspective by participating in the Global Business Experiences course.


Celebrate the end of the MBA with an opportunity to reflect on what you have learned both inside and outside the classroom.  Capstone brings the whole class back together for a series of key events featuring headline speakers and alumni panels.
