  • EMBA-Global Graduating class of 2021

  • “The EMBA-Global programme gave me the academic knowledge that I was missing, even after 10 years of experience in international roles as an entrepreneur, a management consultant and a department manager. When walking into the programme, every single hour that we spent in class opened my mind and helped me look at things in a different way.”

    Florent Breton (EMBA-Global Americas & Europe), Senior Manager, North America Business Operations, Tesla

  • The world-leading EMBA-Global programme is designed for experienced professionals who seek to develop the skills, knowledge and networks to operate as successful global leaders anywhere in the world.

    Global reach The EMBA-Global programme has two streams. EMBA-Global Americas & Europe is offered in London and New York by London Business School (LBS) and Columbia Business School (CBS). EMBA- Global Asia extends the programme’s reach to Hong Kong and Shanghai, with the addition of the University of Hong Kong to the partnership.

    Global perspectives The content and delivery of EMBA-Global means that the programme is truly worldwide and significantly different from other top Executive MBA programmes. Taught by internationally renowned faculty, students benefit from unique insights and gain a truly international perspective. Each school takes advantage of its location to draw upon the surrounding business communities, attracting distinguished guest speakers and business leaders.

    Global format The programme format is designed to allow students to balance their academic commitments with demanding careers and busy personal lives. In part one, core classes are taught in four- or five-day concentrated teaching periods, alternating monthly between campuses. This allows students to fully immerse themselves in the learning and networking opportunities of the host city. In part two, EMBA- Global students have access to the electives of all three schools, enabling them to customise their learning to their interests and organisational goals.

    Global network The EMBA-Global programme gives global business leaders a unique opportunity to learn with and from an extraordinarily high-calibre and diverse cohort. Both EMBA-Global streams include a wide range of nationalities, industries and cultures, enabling all participants to develop a broader global perspective and foster professional relationships and networks around the world.
