The programme design of the MBA combines taught modules with action-based consultancy interventions. These are complemented by three main strands focusing on personal development: the Mindful Manager, Core Capabilities and the MBA Career Advancement Programme, all running throughout the full year. You will also complete a series of challenges to help you gain practical experience and develop your skills.
Right from your first day, you will be immersed in the Mindful Manager and Core Capabilities modules to give you a deep insight into key perspectives. This is designed to ensure you rapidly develop essential practical skills that you will need throughout the rest of your studies. During the first week, alongside formal Mindful Manager teaching, you will also focus on developing your capacity to work in teams and presentation skills through activities which will take you out into the wilds of the UK’s beautiful Lake District. Throughout the course, you will benefit from professional coaching and start engaging with the career advancement elements of the Lancaster MBA.
