LBS logo London experience. World impact.

Core courses ground you in the fundamentals of business and general management. You gain the in-depth knowledge and understanding, together with a broad business overview, to succeed in all areas of the business world.

 

Bringing core courses together in an integrative framework are three integrated modules. Here you explore how business functions and areas integrate and overlap in a practical context. Balancing theory with hands-on experience, integrated modules help you build the adaptive thinking and problem-solving skills that recruiters prize.

 

Three integrated modules

 

Module one focuses primarily on strategy and marketing and includes a business simulation to fast-track decision-making skills. The second module digs deep into mergers and acquisitions and is an opportunity to translate theory into practice using data from real-world organisations.

 

Your third integrated module is a Live Business Project in a London-based company. You will gain practical management skills and problem-solving capabilities tackling real-life problems in a fast-moving setting with support from faculty and business leaders.
