Getting company support 

Every year, we help more than 40% Executive MBA students secure financial support from their employer for their studies. 

To help you make the best possible business case we have created a comprehensive guide to getting company support, drawing on our business expertise and the experiences of past students.  

Download the Executive MBA business case guide (PDF, 492 KB) for detailed information on securing support from your employer.

 

Questions to ask yourself


  • Am I eligible for the programme? 
  • Who will be making the sponsoring decision? 
  • What level of support already exists? 
  • How does the programme fit the needs of the business? 
  • How does the programme fit with my career development? 
  • Why the London Business School Executive MBA? 
  • What will I bring back to my organisation? 
  • What commitment am I asking for from my employer? 
  • What commitment will I be prepared to give my employer? 

Making your case

 

Every business requires different information. But there are specific issues that you must address, regardless of industry, in order to ensure you have the best possible business case.

Identify and demonstrate the value and benefits of the programme to your organisation, your unit, your department, your team and to yourself.  

Make a comprehensive statement of commitment required by your employer

Illustrate your commitment to your employer, both during and after the programme

Salary Sacrifice

 

If your employer agrees to pay your tuition fees, either fully or in part, they may ask you to commit to a salary sacrifice scheme, where you repay the programme fees to your employer from your gross salary over an agreed period of time.

As our Programmes qualify as work related training, the portion of your salary used to reimburse your fees may be exempt from Income Tax and National Insurance.  Your employer may also save on paying their National Insurance contribution on this part of your salary.  

Please find more information on the UK salary sacrifice scheme here.
