Our clients

LUMS has experience in developing customised programmes for many private, public and third-sector organisations, including British Airways, BAE Systems, Bass, Royal & SunAlliance, the NHS, the National Housing Federation, Scapa Group, Total and Zetex.

For further examples of recent clients and how we have worked with them on tailored programmes, see our Corporate Clients and Case Studies sections.

Our people

Most customised work of this type is developed and managed by the Management Development Division, but the teaching and delivery draws on the expertise of faculty from across the School's academic departments.

Many smaller businesses are benefitting from initiatives run by our Institute for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development (IEED), which is very active across the whole of North West of England.

Our approach

As you'd expect from a top-ranked business school, a relationship with LUMS gives access to rigorous and innovative thinking. But more than that, our approach to executive education focuses on ensuring that your investment pays off not just now but for the long-term.
