Imperial College Business School – Imperial College London
Imperial College Full-Time MBA Program Structure
The Imperial College Full-Time MBA takes place over the course of 12 months, and is completely paperless, demonstrating this program’s commitment to the changing dynamics of the business world.
The Imperial College Full-Time MBA begins before students’ arrival to London with pre-study refresher courses, which are offered online via Blackboard. These courses are mainly to bring students up to speed, given the fast-paced and demanding nature of the full-time MBA.
The curriculum is divided into three core modules. These courses are taken alongside six required elective courses, which enable students to specialize into a career pathway, of which many are available.
Outside the lecture hall, students participate in the Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Design Project, as well as the Consulting project, both of which are designed to give hands-on, real-world context to the theoretical lessons that the students are learning. Along a similar vein, students will observe and analyze an international market’s challenges and advantages, its practices and rules – all included within the cost of tuition.
The Imperial College Full-Time MBA student body is comprised of 56 students, 45% of which are female. The average age was 29, with the class represented by 34 total nationalities.
