Our intensive, one-year Full-Time MBA combines academic rigour and practical relevance.
There is a careful balance between teaching, learning, individual work and group work. Case study methodology and class-based discussions are used to strengthen your conceptual, analytical and problem-solving skills. There are also regular seminars held by expert guest speakers.
Your analytical, innovative and entrepreneurial skills will be challenged and stretched, and the selection of projects available allow you to apply your learning to real-world situations.
You will complete pre-study modules to equip you with the basic knowledge and skills required for the programme. You are required to pass these modules, but they are not formally assessed.
Core modules begin in the autumn term and continue throughout the academic year. All students follow the same programme for these initial months and cover key concepts in business.
During the spring and summer terms, you choose optional modules to study. Optional modules allow you to shape the programme to your own ambitions and specialise in the areas of business that interest you the most or suit your career ambitions.
The programme includes a number of integrative modules that bring learning together, allowing you to develop by putting into practice what you have covered in the core modules. These include the Global Experience Week, Capstone Week, Business Simulation, Imperial Innovation Challenge, Consulting Project or Entrepreneurial Journey, and a final individual project or internship report.
Our optional exchange programme is a great opportunity to network internationally whilst taking advantage of specialised optional modules at one of our partner schools. You can choose to travel to another business school and learn from their expert faculty, or join one of their abroad tours and build your network in another country.
You have access to personalised support from Imperial College Business School Careers throughout the programme.
The combination of your enhanced professional skills, strong understanding of business, and numerous opportunities to network with leading experts from the business world will help you pursue your ideal role in business.

Our pre-study and core modules teach you the fundamentals of management. They also serve as an introduction to each of the specialisms* available in analytics, entrepreneurship and finance, to help you decide on the best path to success.
These online pre-study modules act as a refresher and equip you with the key business skills and knowledge required for success on the programme. To support your progress, an online tutor will work in tandem with the programme faculty providing guidance and monitoring your performance.
The core modules build rapidly on your previous experience, while introducing new and challenging disciplines. You will explore advanced business topics to build a solid toolkit and acquire the skills to be an effective and inspiring leader in your chosen career path.*
