Imperial College Business School – Imperial College London - Executive MBA

Imperial College Executive MBA Program Structure

The Imperial College Executive MBA runs for 23-months in a part-time format based in London. The structure of the program allows working professionals to earn a degree attuned to their own schedules. The first year of the program will be centered in South Kensington for two days per month, along with two international residencies.

The second year in the program focuses on completing electives, a residency in the United States, and one final project.


Before the program begins, students enter a pre-study module to prep for core courses, which is then followed by a four day induction sequence in February that takes place from a Wednesday through a Saturday. Core modules are taught for the next 10-to-12 months on campus once per month (Friday and Saturday). Exams take place in August and January. Two hours of Leadership Coaching take place during the same weekend.

During the middle of the first year, students will take residency in China, followed by a residency in a top business school in Europe at the end of the year.

Year two requires four total electives, which can be completed on campus or online. The year culminates with another residency, this time to the U.S., and a final project—a lengthy formal report.
