International Master's Programme in Practicing Management No Qual (PGT) - 2019 Entry

Entry Year
2019

Duration
Part time 18 Month(s)

Course Overview

Five leading global business schools. 18 months. Five 10-day modules. The IMPM programme breaks the mould to create leaders who can develop people and shape business in a complex and changing global context.

Today’s senior managers must be negotiators, problem solvers, entrepreneurs, and more. Iconic management thinker Henry Mintzberg co-founded this course 20 years ago to teach these qualities. His ethos is shared by the 75 international faculty members who bring their research and academic concepts to this programme.

You will study organisations, self, relationships, change and context at McGill University, LUMS, Yokohama National University, Brazil's FGV EBAPE, and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore.

Traditional learning approaches are complemented by cultural experiences such as a yoga class in India or a Zen monastery in Japan, which are designed to help you unlearn behaviours, break down silo mentality and develop new mindsets.

You will focus on how to combine your significant functional experience with the ability to pause and reflect, turning that experience into new knowledge. You will also become comfortable with the uncertainty and complexity that accompanies senior positions.

Contributions are made on an equal basis between faculty and students. You are not passive receivers but co-creators. You are also encouraged to share your learning with a project team of up to ten colleagues in your own organisation. After graduation, you can return for two to three days on modules to build another layer of learning.

Participants come from a wide range of industry backgrounds such as media, telecoms, IT and transport. We also have strong links with companies such as LG and Lufthansa, who have been sending teams of managers on the programme since its foundation.

Fees

Fees

The fee for the IMPM is $45,000 (USD) (excluding travel and living expenses).

For those who wish to complete the requirements of the Master's Degree at Lancaster, there will be an additional fee of $9,000 (USD).

The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.

If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.

What are tuition fees for?

Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.

The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.

Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.

How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?

Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.

What support is available towards tuition fees?

Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
