Course Summary

Our part-time Weekend MBA allows you to accelerate and develop your career, balancing studying at Imperial in London one weekend a month with a demanding job. During the 21-month programme you will develop a strong international network of ambitious students and graduates, leading faculty and business practitioners.

Programme content

The Weekend MBA has been designed with interactivity in mind. The programme enables regular interaction with your peers, whilst you continue to excel in your demanding career.

After an initial induction week, you will attend lectures at our campus in South Kensington, London for Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning approximately once a month. In the second year of study, you will then complete your electives, Capstone Consulting Experience and Global Experience Week*.

You’ll work collaboratively and test out new ideas and theories in a supportive environment where you can discuss what you’ve learned. You can then take new ideas back to your organisation where you apply them and then feedback your experiences in your syndicate groups and in the classroom on a regular basis.

During the 21-month programme you will develop a strong international network of ambitious students, leading faculty, and business practitioners. Outside of the classroom our Careers service will ensure that you are equipped with the tools vital to fulfill your aspirations and secure your ideal role as a business leader.

Career Impact

Studying the Weekend MBA will enable you to increase your value and improve your chances of achieving your career goals, whether that means a change of location, function or sector, or even starting your own business.

Employment data is based on employment activity of the Weekend MBA 2018-20 cohort, within four months of graduation.
