See the business world from all angles through our astonishing choice of more than 70 electives. Complete a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 12 and study the subjects that will prepare you for your dream job.
Electives allow you to network with, and learn from, students across our School community and around the world. They are available to students from all London Business School degree programmes and to visiting international exchange students. Imagine sitting next to a successful senior manager or entrepreneur from our Sloan programme, or a finance specialist from our Master in Finance degree. The cross-generational learning is unmatched.
If you have a job offer – or a completion date in mind – electives can be scheduled in intensive block weeks or spread across a term on weekdays, evenings and weekends to fit in with your schedule.
Learning an additional language can play a critical part in your global toolkit, particularly if you need it to work abroad. At LBS you can choose to study up to three languages. The School offers the following language courses: French, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Portuguese, German, Russian, Japanese and Italian.
