I was looking for ways to upskill and grow my global network without sacrificing my career and income development. As a prestigious institution with world-renowned faculty and alumni, Imperial felt like a good fit for me. Cross-border virtual teams are becoming the norm in large organisations, so studying this programme is a great opportunity to become comfortable working this way.
Your device and internet access are two of the most important components for remote and online learning. We want to make sure that you have all the necessary resources to make the most of your experience.
Study online via our cutting-edge learning platform
Our online programmes are carefully designed and delivered via The Hub, our bespoke learning environment which is crafted by Imperial’s award-winning EdTech Lab. Ensuring students receive a high-quality and supportive experience that is comparable to our on-campus programmes, an online programme can be a great option if you’re looking to study without interrupting your career. We have three online programmes:
Our two-year, part-time MSc Business Analytics (online delivery, part-time) is modelled on our full-time on-campus programme, but with the ability to continue working and apply learnings straight to your role.
Our two-year, part-time MSc Strategic Marketing is designed to be studied online, as you continue your career. It is the online format of our award-winning on-campus offering. You will complete your Master’s alongside a cohort of ambitious professionals from across the world.
The Global Online MBA is a part-time programme that is delivered in an online format, focusing on innovative thinking and new technology to deliver a practical curriculum.
Bringing together our world-renowned faculty and a flexible learning format, we place engagement and academic rigour at the forefront of our teaching and learning. The programme content and modules have gone through a rigorous process to be optimised for online study by our educational learning specialists.
Working full-time and studying part-time is a juggling act – especially when you throw other life commitments into the mix. Our dedicated Programmes team are on hand to support you throughout your studies. Combined with the support of your cohort, nothing will feel impossible.
Online learning can be both challenging and rewarding, but with all the resources right at your fingertips, you will embark on a journey of development, self-awareness and discovery.
Our programmes have intensive periods of study. Contact hours form only part of the activity that you will be asked to undertake. You will be required to devote time preparing for lectures, doing readings, completing weekly tasks, completing graded assessments, revising for exams, as well as working in virtual syndicate groups to undertake group work, which can include assessments, presentations, videos and more.
If you choose to study one of our online programmes, you’ll learn via The Hub, a platform that provides convenient access to all programme materials, connects you to your peers and tutors, and gives you the power to track your progress throughout the programme.
The Hub breaks each module down into 10-week blocks, with each week dedicated to a specific area of learning with individual sessions. This helps you to stay on top of your learning and plan your study time efficiently.
Your online learning experience will include: high-quality interactive videos with world-class faculty and guests, live lectures, online tutorials, interactive exercises, group and individual assignments, programming tasks (for some programmes), drop-in sessions and career support.

Studying remotely has given me a huge amount of flexibility to work at my own pace and in my own time. It allows me to allocate more time to certain areas I am less sure of. The Hub has been a bridge between fellow students, the faculty and myself. It is very intuitive and fosters a sense of community even at a distance.
