Programme content

The Lancaster Full-time MBA combines taught modules with action-based consultancy interventions. These are complemented by four key strands of learning that focus on personal development: the Mindful Manager, Leading Mindfully, Core Capabilities and the MBA Career Advancement Programme, these run throughout the year.

The Lancaster MBA starts on Day 1

There is no soft, slow start to the Lancaster MBA. You have a great deal to accomplish in the year you are with us and will need to make rapid progress. The programme begins on your very first day with an intensive engagement with the Core Capabilities module.

It's crucial that you gain a deep insight into the perspectives of The Mindful Manager before the more conventional taught material in the programme, and that you rapidly develop key practical skills before you proceed further. This module starts on Day 2

During the first week, alongside formal Mindful Manager teaching, you will take part in some intense training courses that focus on your capacity to work in teams, and on your presentational skills. The team working course will take you out into the wilds of the UK’s beautiful Lake District, and on both courses you will benefit from professional personal coaching. You will also have your first engagement with the Careers Advancement team.
