Course content

The Imperial Full-Time MBA is a one-year programme based in London that transforms ambitious, talented individuals into pioneering leaders. In a community where the next generation of innovators are given the support to succeed, you’ll develop an entrepreneurial mind-set to help you create change and tackle global business challenges.

Joining an intimate class of students, your experience is tailored to your own career objectives, combining your aspiration and vision with our unique learning experience. Alongside your core modules and electives, the Imperial MBA includes a variety of practical projects and international elements where you can apply your learning in real world situations. Throughout the programme you will learn from, and alongside, diverse business minds from varied sectors and nationalities.

Located in London, one of the world’s true business capitals, Imperial’s connections attract senior business leaders as speakers and visiting lecturers, giving you a great opportunity to extend your strong international network.

On this one year programme you will study core modules to build your foundation in business, and then shape your own elective and project portfolio to suite your personal academic and career ambitions.

Online pre-study modules:

Pre-study modules ensure that all students have the knowledge and skills required for the start of the programme. You will be expected to complete modules covering mathematics, accounting and career and professional development from three months before the start of the programme.

Leadership team building day:

To kick-start your journey you will attend a leadership and team building day. A fun day away from campus, you will spend time building core relationships with your MBA family – the team you will be working with for the next year – and exploring how individual characteristics affect leadership styles.

Core Modules:

The core modules will build rapidly on your previous experience, while introducing new and challenging disciplines. You will cover the general functions of management, explore essential business topics and acquire the skills to be an effective and inspiring leader.


Electives are your opportunity to truly shape the programme to your own ambitions. Whether your objective is to accelerate your current career by developing your toolkit or explore new interests and embark on a different path - electives allow you to be in the driver’s seat of your learning journey.

You can choose from a range of on-campus or online electives. Approximately 20 different electives are run each year depending on student interest. Students also have the opportunity to undertake study abroad programmes with the IB Glocal Electives.
