Your EMBA Network

You will be learning alongside experienced fellow professionals working in various sectors of the economy, from large multinationals to not-for-profit organisations. Their experience and personal contacts can be highly valuable for your work and your career.

Strong, supportive working relationships and high levels of interaction between class members are a key part of the Lancaster EMBA. The fresh perspectives of your fellow students, along with faculty members and tutors, are as valuable as the programme itself. The debate and discussion, both in the classroom and in subsequent online debate, provide a powerful test-bed for ideas and potentially a valuable source of professional advice.

Access to other minds, experiences and professional expertise

The mix will vary each year, but in each cohort members of the class are likely to come from:

  • private, public and non-profit organisations
  • small, medium-sized and multinational companies
  • most organisational functions (sales, marketing, accounts/finance, operations, project management, human resources, logistics)

They are senior or middle management, typically range in age from 28-45 years old and have at least five years of work experience, and often considerably more. Most EMBA cohorts include some members who live and work overseas, and fly in for the residential modules.
