The scope, teaching and intensity of the Masters in Management make it a masterclass in business management. Take advantage of these unique opportunities to broaden your business experience on campus in London and around the world.
Pre-programme and orientation
Before the programme officially begins you will have a chance to prepare comprehensively - finding your feet and bringing your understanding up to speed. Our foundation week and orientation days are the perfect way to meet fellow students and key school figures. You will take part in an exciting range of skills and career activities, including an outdoor activity away day, as you integrate into your study group.
Gain a rigorous and analytical understanding of the fundamentals of business and general management across core subjects. Integrated modules bring these key subjects and your understanding together, as you explore how different areas and business functions intersect and work together to deliver value in real life, where boundaries are blurred. Balancing in-depth theory with practical experience, integrated modules build the adaptive thinking and problem-solving skills that today’s employers want.
Choose three from a range of around 40 elective subjects to deepen specialised knowledge and customise learning to your specific needs and objectives. Electives also expose you to other students from a cross-section of LBS degree programmes; broadening your mind-set and helping you further extend your network.
Live Business Project
The capacity to translate theory into practice to solve problems is a core skill in business. And one that is highly in demand. The Live Business Project sees you sharpen practical management skills and gain acumen as you grapple with real-world ambiguity and volatility, working within a leading London-based organisation. Put theory into practice. And build out your business network and recruitment opportunities.
Global exposure is a key differentiator in world-class leadership development. Faculty-led field trips take you beyond what you know and explore the broader themes of social impact, entrepreneurship and sustainability. Immersive and transformative, trips are your chance not only to approach problems in different cultural and business contexts. They are a chance to apply your learning. Work directly with communities and deliver concrete impact, gain hands-on experience and broaden your perspective. Trips are organised to a diverse range of locations and business sectors.
An enhanced skills portfolio not only helps embed your learning but also equips you to hit the ground running in your next position. Skills development is grouped into three strategic areas that map closely to business needs - interpersonal, numerical and digital literacy – and cover a broad diversity of capabilities, from online branding and professional presentation to modelling, excel and programming. You can tailor your learning via a suite of flexible options.
Language skills are invaluable for building successful relationships and career success in a global business environment. As part of your Personal Development Programme, you gain new perspectives and cultural insights by learning a second language, an exit requirement of the programme.
