Coaching as a leader
Executive impact and influence
The Executive MBA is a five-term, 20-month programme. Students on both the London and Dubai streams come together in London to start the Executive MBA experience. You undertake a total of three modules in London, at the start and end of the programme. All shared modules are residential and provide the ideal environment in which to build valuable networks with an extended group of diverse peers.
Following Orientation week in London, you will continue your programme in either London or Dubai and study the majority of core courses in your primary study location. In London, core courses are taught on consecutive Fridays and Saturdays of alternate weeks. In Dubai, core courses are taught in a four or five-day block each month.
In Year 2, you take between six and eight elective courses. Schedules differ depending on which electives you choose. Students embark on a compulsory week-long International Assignment and may choose a second as an elective option. You can also elect an in-company project as part of your elective credits.
The Executive MBA concludes with the London and Dubai streams coming together for two residential modules. These modules consolidate your learning through multi-disciplinary group simulation and feedback to help you prepare for your career transitions ahead.
There are also optional workshops offered throughout the programme, designed to develop your interpersonal skills, and cover topics such as presenting, negotiating, handling conflict and business writing.
Study groups consist of about five or six people who work together for core course work during the first three terms. When putting the study groups together, we look for a balance of educational background, work background, gender and nationality.
