EMBA Advantage

The Executive MBA Programme is designed for mid-career managers and entrepreneurs who are keen to take on greater challenges and make an impact on the productivity of their organisations. These individuals can leverage their rich work experience through this world-class management programme. The curriculum has been designed to provide both depth and breadth of a rigorous, distinguished management programme. While starting with the fundamentals of each functional area, the courses quickly step up to advanced levels in order to maximise learning of a group of highly experienced managers. This helps participants develop an understanding at the operational and strategic level in each business area.

The EMBA programme has gone through major structural changes in the past year to develop better curriculum for executives. 4 hours’ sessions/day (two courses running at a time) were replaced by teaching 3, 90 min sessions/day (three courses running at a time. The structure is based on 16 sessions of 90 minutes each.

Financial Accounting has been reintroduced in the EMBA curriculum based on its relevance to the programme. A curriculum comparison with 10 top business schools of the world identified the need for the change in curriculum.

  • The executive MBA has been a life-changing experience for me. This degree taught me how professional businesses are run. The case study method exposes students to the challenges faced by larger organisations and how they overcome real time business obstacles. One learns not only from the finest faculty in the country, but while interacting in an elite peer group we enhance each other’s knowledge of our respective industries.

  • At LUMS, I was able to learn and challenge myself and others in an interactive environment. This came through deep analysis, finding solutions, stating my opinions within a limited window of time and then building on it to establish my credibility.

  • You think ‘world class’ and then you see it - LUMS has been exactly that for me. LUMS is what I would like to call family; it’s a friend, a confidant, sometimes my favorite enemy; with the unimaginable challenges it poses and the adrenalin rush it pumps for me to realize that the impossible is in fact possible! The steep learning curve has led me to expose myself to capabilities I never knew I had and to recognize the immense potential that goes to waste if not tapped into. LUMS took me in as an intermediate input in 2017, and with only a year worth of magic I already feel like a new person; not just in my technical knowledge of the business world, but also in my multitasking abilities, my renewed perspective of time and its value, and most importantly, in realizing my true potential. This journey, a one-of-its-kind rollercoaster ride, has truly been my favorite with the best takeaway on offer: It is never too late to follow your true calling! LUMS is not just a university, it is a Center for Excellence. The faculty, teaching approach, first-hand exposure to the industry, learning from peers, and state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities on offer are unmatched. The ‘Think Global, Act Local’ philosophy, a key building block for the institute, is evident in its impressive case-basis teaching methodology. With great emphasis on experiential education and value-addition from a wide array of professionals in every class, LUMS makes an ideal learning platform for you to explore endless possibilities.
