The Full Time MBA: an Overview
Offering a truly transformational experience, the Lancaster full-time MBA is a one-year programme in the UK, in which students live and study alongside experienced and ambitious professionals from all over the world. Through a mix of learning opportunities – in the classroom and in organisations – students explore what it really means to be a strategic leader, and at the end of the year, they emerge more aware, more confident and more capable, ready for the next step in their career.

The programme team works hard to promote and support this diverse community of learners and to deliver a programme that is sensitive to their differing needs along with a delivery team that is equally diverse.

The programme provides a comprehensive grounding in general management and strategic thinking.
