LBS Sloan Masters core classes balance the theoretical elements that underpin the behaviour of individuals, firms, markets and economies, and many applied and practical aspects of the various business disciplines. They are designed to give you an update on key aspects of business and equip you with the crucial knowledge that all leaders must possess.
You will be assigned to a group of approximately five people at the beginning of the programme for core course study. We aim to make each group as diverse as possible in terms of cultural, educational and professional backgrounds to ensure your learning experience is as rich as possible.
