Customise your programme

Students arrive at London Business School from a variety of different situations, and with different goals and learning styles. Our curriculum supports your individual development needs by giving you increased choice and flexibility.

Customise your learning experience

You are able to structure your MBA to suit your specific objectives and study needs:

  • Complete your studies in 15, 18 or 21 months
  • Choose from a variety of elective formats, including 5 or 10 week, modular or block week courses
  • Apply for international exchange at one of over 30 partner schools. This opportunity is available to students completing the course in 18 or 21 months
  • Use your summer for a traditional internship, the Summer Consulting Programme, the Entrepreneurship Summer School or a vacation
  • Apply to one of five Global Business Experiences and attend a London Business Experience at one of a range of organisations

Tailor your curriculum

On the London Business School MBA you can tailor your curriculum to help you meet your future career goals:

  • If you have previously studied Economics, Financial Accounting or Management Accounting you can waive out of core courses in these areas. This allows you more time to take an elective, or to focus on the courses that you find more challenging.
  • Select between 10 and 12 elective courses from a choice of over 70, plus a small number of auditing opportunities. During your second you may also undertake a management report as one of your elective choices.
  • Specialise in entrepreneurial management, finance, marketing, strategy, international management, private equity, economics or change management - or take a broad approach and select from across the subject areas.
  • Access a range of elective courses at University College London in life science, computer science, technology, public policy and real estate.
