Lancaster University Management School is delighted to announce a unique partnership with top French business school, EMLYON, and the prestigious Munich School of Management to offer a postgraduate degree with a difference.

Through successfully completing the two-year European Master in Management programme, students will gain three MSc qualifications from LUMS, EMLYON and Ludwig Maximilians Universität in Munich.

The programme features:

  • Study at two leading European business schools (with the option to study at all three)
  • A six-month internship in year one and a six-month internship at the end of year two
  • Subject breadth with year one providing a broad understanding of all key business and management functions
  • In-depth specialisation in year two in corporate development, corporate finance, or organisation, change and strategy
  • One-week teaching blocks, allowing students to maximise focus and consolidate their learning
  • Built-in networking opportunities with fellow students, alumni, staff and employers

The programme is open to strong candidates from all disciplinary backgrounds.

Mark Shackleton, Associate Dean for Postgraduate Studies at LUMS said: “For candidates with high levels of mobility and career aspiration, this programme provides an excellent academic experience – at the same time as boosting employability opportunities through internships and international experience studying and working in two European cities.”

Professor Angus Laing, Dean of LUMS, said: “We all know that the job market is tough for graduates. We’re delighted to launch this programme with our partners in Lyon and Munich, developed specifically to give graduates a head-start in their careers. Aimed at the brightest minds from all academic disciplines, the programme mixes the latest business thinking with great internship opportunities – so students can apply their learning, and learn from, the real world. France and Germany are two of the UK’s most important trade partners and this learning experience will help students develop the global mindset required to work in today’s international business environment.”
