Our Executive MBA will enable you to supercharge your career at a triple accredited (AACBS, EQUIS, AMBA) top 10 UK business school with a 40-year track record of developing innovative managers and successful business leaders.

Executive MBA

The Loughborough Executive MBA is designed to help those with a minimum of five years’ professional/managerial experience who wish to transform their career and realise their professional ambitions. The programme typically takes around three years to complete.

Our EMBA equips you with the skills to manage complex business challenges, develop creative solutions for contemporary business issues, lead innovative change programmes to capitalise on new opportunities, and become an effective leader of people.

Through modules such as Business Analytics and Problem Solving for Leaders, the programme focuses heavily on practical problem-solving skills to address real business challenges. Throughout, our work-based assignments give you the opportunity to develop innovative solutions to current business problems, enabling you to improve organisational effectiveness and enhance your leadership skills. Our blended learning approach allows you to balance learning and business pressures.

Learning alongside a cohort of experienced managers will enable you to share fresh perspectives on similar problems and build lasting business networks. You will also have the opportunity to meet and learn alongside our internationally diverse Full-Time MBA cohort on some modules.

Executive MBA Sports Management Pathway

We also offer a specific sports management pathway on our Executive MBA for those who wish to tailor their learning to the sports sector. The proramme is designed to provide you with all the core MBA knowledge, skills and behaviours while allowing you to develop sport management specific knowledge and skills through tailored optional modules and your work-based project. Ranked number one in the world for sports-related subjects (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020), Loughborough is an ideal place to study if you are focused on working in the sports industry.

Degree apprenticeships

Both programme pathways can be taken as a Level 7 Senior Leaders Apprenticeship.
