The two types of MBA at Lancaster
The Lancaster Full-time MBA

The programme modules and the allied Career Management Programme develop your skills for all kinds of management career – be it general management, consultancy, or a new business start-up. Tailor your electives to your preferred career route or keep your options open. Through its global mix of students, international exchanges and a series of client-based projects, the programme helps you to improve your international management effectiveness and your understanding of different cultural contexts.
The Lancaster Executive MBA
The Executive MBA at Lancaster is a two-year part-time programme for experienced managers. Its highly practical and action-oriented approach combines intensive modular input in four-day blocks with real business projects and close tutorial support. The programme design, with its work-based assignments in which you apply your learning, ensures that as your abilities grow, your organisation reaps the benefits. EMBA is geared to developing your knowledge of business functions and their interactions, and to building your ability to manage and lead in complex organisational situations. Its emphasis on practical thinking processes to underpin and drive purposeful action will develop your capacity to become an effective agent for change within your organisation, and give you fresh perspectives on challenging issues.
