Course content

An update on the Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) programme.

Thank you for your interest in the Executive MBA programme at Lancaster University.

We have a rich, thirty-year, history of delivering our Executive MBA to transform ambitious managers into responsible leaders who have strategic thinking capability.

Our committed EMBA team makes sure that the programme curriculum is constantly evolving to ensure our graduates acquire the skills, knowledge, and experiences they need to excel in contemporary business environments. As part of our development of the EMBA, we are currently redesigning the programme and are excited to launch a new EMBA course in autumn 2024. However, this means that we will not be starting an EMBA programme in 2023.

Our new programme will be designed to fit in with working full-time and studying part-time. We will make use of online teaching options together with intensive teaching blocks where you are able to discuss contemporary organisational challenges with world-class leading Lancaster faculty as well as with students on the course from diverse backgrounds.

Our programme is underpinned by practical, work-focused assignments, where you apply and evaluate some of the theories you have just learnt to create actionable recommendations for your organisation.

If you would like to register your interest in learning more about the new EMBA programme please complete the form below.

In the meantime, you may be interested in some alternative options that are available in 2023, such as our Cyber Security Executive MBA or our Senior Leader Apprenticeship programme with top-up progression to Executive MBA, or our full-time MBA.

Information for international students

We may ask you to provide a recognised English language qualification, dependent upon your nationality and where you have studied previously.

We normally require an IELTS (Academic) Test with an overall score of at least 6.5, and a minimum of 6.0 in each element of the test. We also consider other English language qualifications.
