The Lancaster Executive MBA programme is designed to build your functional knowledge and your leadership capability through a combination of taught modules in key management areas interspersed with experiential projects, or challenges, where you apply that knowledge to specific business issues.

These are complemented by action oriented coursework assignments in your organisation. Other than the programme being triple accredited, what makes the Lancaster EMBA truly distinctive, however, are its concept of learning through action, which shapes the entire programme design, and its focus on both personal and organizational development.
 
“Embarking on a part-time MBA, is never easy. You expect and want it to be challenging and to test your abilities in all directions. This is certainly true at Lancaster; unsurprising though, from a management school that has achieved top rankings in the UK for teaching and research for more than a decade. Those qualities are reflected in the lecturers you will meet on the programme – and in the real currency and rigour of the ideas you will be introduced to”. We look forward to welcoming new students for the 2016/2017 academic year that will add to the growing number of alumni across the globe”.   – Prof Cynthia Forson (Deputy Provost, Lancaster University Ghana)
 
The Lancaster Executive MBA inducted its first cohort of students in July 2015. The diverse demographics for the class comes with students from Ghana, Nigeria, Lebanon, Ivory Coast and Canada with varying years of work experience, however a majority of the class have above 7 years of work experience and are above the age of 30. Candidates from the first cohort come from a variety of backgrounds including telecommunications, architecture, construction, insurance, education, and engineering amongst others.
 
Why take our word for it, here’s what students from the first cohort of our Executive MBA programme have to say;
“The Lancaster EMBA Programme has provided me with the perfect balance between work, education and family. I have access to UK education locally, combined with colleagues and their experiences from different industries and cultures together with a 2 year overview of my timetable. Education has never been so carefully planned and painless like my time with Lancaster “- Eric Tetteh (Account Manager (Sales), Ericsson AB Ghana).
 
“My experience as an EMBA student at Lancaster University turned out to be the crucial to my professional and personal development. The Professors are industrially aware.  Networking with other senior executives and CEO’s as course mates is deepening my intellectual abilities.  To me Lancaster EMBA is an academic Suite and living the opportunity is fulfilling” - Jerry Selase Ayeduvor, Vodafone, Ghana
