LSE offers the TRIUM Global Executive MBA Programme jointly with NYU Stern School of Business and HEC Paris School of Management. It is divided into six intellectually rigorous modules held in five international business locations over a 17-month period.

The class comprises diverse, experienced senior level executives from around the world. The curriculum is tailor-made to suit the participants, with the required absence from the office only 10 weeks over the 17 month period. You will have access to a distance learning platform which is used for learning activities and project work as well as fostering a continuous educational community, with professors and classmates.

Modules are designed and delivered by all three institutions to build seamlessly upon one another, ensuring that the curriculum, which draws upon the special strengths of each school, is delivered in a unified and complementary way. This is the only Executive MBA programme to integrate an international socio-political, economic dimension into its entire MBA curriculum, playing on LSE’s strength in this area. During the modules, regional academic and industry experts are selectively invited to further enrich the curriculum and to ensure maximum regional breadth and knowledge.

We combine this with a unique environment where you and your peers challenge each other and yourselves, and where diversity brings a variety of experiences, perspectives, and new ways of solving old and new problems.

To enable you to gain a comprehensive, 360° view of business best practice, our curriculum covers all the subjects you would expect from a global EMBA, such as Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Executive Leadership and Strategy.

But to help you broaden your horizons still further, we add to this with content exploring a variety of contemporary topics such as Global Political Economy, Entrepreneurship, Social Media, Negotiation and the TRIUM Capstone Project.
