The Sloan Masters programme began at MIT in 1931. It was the brainchild of Alfred P Sloan Jnr, Chairman of General Motors, who believed that the best kind of leader was one who had a cross-functional understanding of management, and that this was best acquired after some years' real-world experience. Today’s Sloan Fellows share a breadth and depth of expertise gained in senior positions worldwide.
Three world-class business schools offer programmes that share this great heritage: Stanford, London Business School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). LBS Sloan Fellows join a powerful international network. The LBS Sloan Masters in Leadership and Strategy is the only specialist masters of its kind in Europe.
The LBS Sloan Masters challenges and prepares experienced senior managers moving towards leadership positions to realise their global leadership ambitions. It is a 12-month, full-time degree programme leading to an MSc in Leadership and Strategy. The curriculum combines core courses in leadership and strategy with a choice of electives, and includes a Global Business Assignment.
The full-time MBA is a general management degree aimed at people who are at a relatively early stage in their career. The LBS Sloan focuses on leadership and strategy and has been designed for senior executives with significant management and strategic experience, who would like to study with a group of peers with similar depth and breadth of experience.
When you graduate you will receive a Masters in Science (MSc).
You can only apply to one masters programme at LBS or our partner schools at once during the same academic year. You cannot re-apply to the same programme within the same academic year.
From September 2021, the School is adopting a Classroom First approach. For more information on what this means for you, visit our Return to campus page.
