    The degree is for senior leaders in education in all phases of provision, from pre-school settings through to those working at the tertiary level, as well as those with a system-wide role. Participants are usually in or aspiring to executive leadership roles, which we define as having responsibility for multi-part or multi-site educational organisations.

    About this degree

    The programme consists of four compulsory modules (120 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). Students with an NPQH qualification awarded no more than five years before the planned start date can claim recognition of prior learning to the value of 30 credits, and complete the compulsory modules (120 credits) and a report (30 credits).

    Study Programme

    There are four on-campus classes per core module and you will be on campus approximately once a month in your first year. Your attendance on campus in the second year depends on the electives you choose.

    Prior to the start of the programme, you take a number of pre-programme modules. These ensure that you have the quantitative and financial skills required for the rest of the course. You must successfully pass the pre-programme modules, but they are not formally assessed.

    Executive MBA at Imperial

    You will complete approximately 16 hours of online material prior to each campus weekend, split into one-hour cells, using our highly interactive online learning tools before each of your in-class sessions.

    In your second year, you begin to specialise in areas of interest and elective modules to study in the spring and summer terms. You can choose to do all of your optional modules online or opt to study with a blend of online and in-class learning. Many optional modules are offered in four formats to fit into your schedule:

    1. Long weekend on campus - Thursday afternoon, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning
    2. Weekday on campus - Monday and Tuesday (week one), Thursday and Friday (week two)
    3. Online electives (10-week blocks) - Perfect if you want to minimise your visits to campus, our highly interactive online modules allow you to study at your convenience
    4. IB Glocal Electives - Intensive study abroad programmes led by the Business School faculty to teach students how to explore contemporary global business problems with a local perspective

    During the autumn term of your second year, you undertake an individual project and analyse a particular industry, management problem or aspect of the economy. You will usually work in close cooperation with a company (typically your employer). The final project is an opportunity to apply the management principles, modules, concepts and techniques you have learnt during the programme and to be recognised for adding value to your organisation.

    International residences*

    At the end of your first year, you will join a three-day international core module to a top business school in Europe called Manufacturing the German Way. In the middle of your second year, a one-week international core module called Doing Business in China will take you to Greater China.
