A challenging and innovative one year management programme for Imperial science students

Run in collaboration with the departments of Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and Chemistry within Imperial College London, students complete their degree with a final year in management at the Business School.

The year in the Joint Honours Programme covers the operating environment of business organisations to prepare students for an eventual career in management roles. With a strong grounding in core subjects, you will gain an understanding of the management and operating environment of business organisations.

Whilst demanding, our balanced programme of formal teaching, case studies and individual and group work will develop your personal, conceptual and analytical skills, and give you an opportunity to broaden your academic experience and mix with students from other disciplines.

Application process and eligibility criteria

Students of Chemistry, Life Sciences or Medical Biosciences who wish to transfer to the joint 'with Management' pathway, should in the first instance contact their home department to request further information about the relevant transfer process and deadlines.

Typically, students who wish to transfer should have completed at least one year of undergraduate study, and achieved a minimum overall combined performance of a 2:1 in year 1 (and year 2, if applicable).

Students who do not meet this requirement may still be considered, if their application is endorsed by their Personal Tutor or Director of Undergraduate Studies. They may also be asked to attend a short interview with the Business School.

Programme structure

Pre-sessional modules: Complete three online primer modules – Accounting, Maths and Plagiarism Awareness – to ready you for your studies in the year ahead.

Induction week: Meet and network with the rest of the cohort.
