Sloan Masters In Leadership And Strategy

Program Structure

London Business School’s Sloan Masters in Leadership and Strategy program is designed for people with substantial experience who are looking to become truly effective leaders and create value for their organizations.

The program is designed for those who wish to affect change and execute value-driving strategies within their organizations and develop new styles of leadership for a changing world.

This is a full-time 12-month Masters Degree program. The majority of the classes are held between Tuesday and Thursday to give working professionals schedule flexibility. Outside of this, students are required to set aside time for skills sessions, private study, study group meetings, careers events, guest speakers, and club events.

Curriculum

Core courses are completed over the first seven months, and elective options can be taken from the end of the first term. Electives are run in different formats, some in single block weeks and some over 10-week terms up to the end of the program.

The core courses cover concepts in finance, management accounting, strategy, corporate governance, leadership and marketing. Students are also instructed on how these can be harnessed to drive and improve organizational performance.

Students are also required to take between five and eight electives. Electives give students the opportunity to customize their learning in areas of interest and to meet the needs of their organization.

Students can also participate in an independent project, which gives them an opportunity to tailor their learning experience to add value to their particular organization. The independent project can be directly related to an individual’s organization or can be related to an outside organization. This is an opportunity to hone strategic management in order to address critical business issues.

Participants are also required to complete an international assignment. This is a weeklong assignment that gives students a first-hand look at how business operates in other parts of the world. Students travel to destinations such as China, the United States, the Russian Federation, India, South Africa, or Argentina while accompanied by a member of faculty. Students will work in small teams, working closely with an organization on a real business project or visiting companies, NGOs, institutions, and consultancies to gain fresh insight into international business practices.
