Course content

This unique two-year programme is run jointly by Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), emlyon business school and Ludwig Maximilian Universität, Munich (LMU). The programme content is designed and delivered collaboratively, providing a triple perspective on management. You have the opportunity to study in multiple locations and graduate with three degrees – one from each partner. International internships are also built into the programme, boosting your employability and preparing you for your future career.

This exciting, integrated approach to developing theory and practical knowledge equips you with the essential tools you will need to apply your knowledge to the real world of business and to adapt to the global challenges you will face in your future career.

Year 1 of this two-year course, which takes place at emlyon business school’s Lyon campus, focuses on the breadth of the management discipline, providing you with knowledge in all key areas of business and management, including marketing, strategy, accounting, finance, operations, human resources, technology, entrepreneurship and economics. All three partners are physically involved in delivering the course material in Lyon. The first year ends with a 21-week internship, which can be undertaken anywhere in the world.

Year 2 allows you to develop specialist knowledge in a chosen area, further supporting your career aspirations. Your choice of specialism determines where you will study: Corporate Development (LUMS), Corporate Finance (emlyon's Lyon or Shanghai campus), Marketing (LUMS and emlyon) or Organisational Change and Strategy (LMU Munich). Note that all courses are taught entirely in English. Year 2 concludes with the dissertation followed by a second internship or full time employment.
