Make bigger plans

The Executive MBA is a transformative programme designed to help you realise your leadership potential. You’ll receive business knowledge, leadership skills and networks to accelerate your career, wherever you decide to take it; in London or Dubai.


The Executive MBA (EMBA) prepares you for your professional transformation into becoming a general manager and leader. Whether accelerating your existing career or developing beyond your technical specialism, let the Executive MBA be your catalyst for advancement into a more senior role, function or geographic location, or the development of your own business venture.


The part-time programme format is designed to help you balance your demanding career and commitments with intensive study and professional, as well as personal, development. The part time Executive MBA marks the start of your journey, which continues beyond your 20 months at LBS. As EMBA alumni you will have the opportunity to continue your development through on-going learning and engagement within the EMBA community and wider London Business School alumni network.
