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 The Hub, the school’s online learning system. 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 in 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 class of 2016-2017 student body is comprised of 67 students, 34 percent of which are female. The average age is 28, with the class represented by 29 total nationalities.


At Imperial College Business School, much is done for students – by other students – to ensure that they have the requisite skills and knowledge to find a career. There are various student and alumni networks that students may plug into and light the way to that ideal job. There are also a variety of career services available to students while they are completing their MBA, such as career counseling, CV help, and interview practice. MBA students are assigned a career coach that they must meet with at least once each term. Additionally, 92 percent of students report being employed within three months of graduating, according to the school’s most recent employment report.
