Imperial College Business School embarks on ‘Global MBA’ recruitment drive with Study Group

04 August 2014

Our partnership will help the Business School with its marketing and recruitment drive for its new online Global MBA programme.

This flexible, part-time, online MBA programme will allow students to gain core business knowledge and skills without having to be physically present in the classroom for the majority of the programme.

Study Group’s global network will allow the Business School to recruit the brightest and best from around the world, while our online engagement platform in regional markets will aim to achieve high applicant conversion rates.

David Lefevre, Global MBA Programme Director, Imperial College Business School, says: “This programme represents a significant step forward from the traditional distance learning model. Communication technologies now enable us to provide a full, interactive MBA experience. As per globally based teams in today’s international enterprises, we will use technology to promote a strong sense of group, team and connectedness to our base in London. All our MBA programmes are heavily infused with Imperial’s world-renowned entrepreneurial spirit – we aim to attract already brilliant minds and inspire them to become future business leaders. We are looking forward to working together with Study Group to make our Global MBA project a great success.”

James Pitman, Managing Director, Higher Education UK and Europe, Study Group says: “We’re delighted to be working with Imperial College Business School on this cutting-edge MBA programme”.

“In terms of content and delivery, this course is excellent preparation for a career in global business where geography means you can’t necessarily have face-to-face meetings with colleagues or customers. As well as world-class business training, the skills that are required to build successful working relationships in these circumstances are paralleled during the MBA course. Research also shows that career paths and expected remuneration following online MBA courses are comparable to those taught on campus, so altogether the Global MBA is a very exciting proposition indeed.”

Imperial College Business School’s Global MBA promises to break new ground in online engagement. Central to the programme is peer-to-peer interaction and project group work, delivered through a variety of digital platforms. An initial induction week at the start of the programme and two weeks at the start of year two (for the Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Design course) also gives the Global MBA students the opportunity to build lasting connections with each other. Face-to-face on campus electives are also available.

The Global MBA is a two-year programme, and the first classes will begin in January 2015.

Applications for the Global MBA are considered on their individual merits, with a focus on a combination of academic ability, work experience and professional status. Candidates with non-traditional qualifications and backgrounds are also welcome. Applicants who do not meet the above entry requirements may also still be considered.
