Corporate Sponsorship

Create a successful workforce of inspiring leaders with a world-class MBA

In a global organisation, the opportunities for internal career growth and organisational success are endless when staff are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to further their careers and, in turn, the organisation as a whole.

An effective global workforce is one that can work together to share knowledge, skills and ideas to achieve organisational goals – and Imperial College Business School facilitates an environment in which professionals around the world can do just that through its Weekend MBA programme.

Why sponsor an employee to enrol in Imperial’s Weekend MBA programme?

They’ll immediately be able to apply the expert knowledge and skills gained through the programme to your workplace as they continue their careers whilst studying.

They’ll be connected to a community of high-calibre professionals from reputable global organisations like yours, gaining exposure to international business practices, perspectives and networks that will help them further succeed in their roles.

They’ll be able to gain a world-class MBA from a leading, triple-accredited institution while maintaining their current work commitments thanks to a programme that allows professionals to study around their busy schedule.

They’ll be armed with the knowledge and skills they need to be able to fill senior roles internally, allowing your organisation to retain and nurture internal knowledge and talent and eliminating the time and costs associated with sourcing staff externally.

Thanks to the range of electives on offer, your sponsored employee’s Weekend MBA can be tailored to the specific needs of your organisation. The final project element of the programme will allow your sponsored employee to tackle a specific problem or address a business opportunity for your organisation, providing research and consultancy which could have a crucial impact on the success of your business.
