Who is the Sloan programme designed for?

Sloan Fellows are successful senior managers, professionals and entrepreneurs with a passion for learning and the drive to set themselves apart.

London Business School's Sloan programme is specifically designed for people with substantial experience who are looking to become truly effective leaders and create value for their organisations.

Sloan Fellows come from a wide range of cultures, industries, job sectors and professional backgrounds. They demonstrate significant levels of achievement in their careers and have experience of decision-making at strategic levels. They typically have more than 12 years of management experience.

In their pre-Sloan role they:

  • are decision makers in their functional area
  • are accountable for results
  • lead mission critical projects
  • influence and take a leadership role in managing change.

The motivations for undertaking the programme are equally varied. The programme has been designed for those who wish to:
