International Exchange Programme

The London Business School MBA has one of the world's largest international exchange programmes. Each year approximately 40 per cent of second-year MBA students spend a term abroad at one of over 30 partner schools. We also host a similar number of students from our partner schools.

While on the exchange you will build new business networks and experience a new culture. You will also be expected to take courses worth up to four elective credits.

To ensure you get the maximum cultural benefit you will not normally be allowed to visit a country that you have lived in for more than three years as an adult. Please also note that students who wish to complete their studies in 15 months will not be able to go on international exchange. Application for a place on the exchange programme is via a competitive process.
