The GGSB MBA programme is a prestigious business qualification delivered in partnership with Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB) - one of the most highly regarded business schools in the world. The programme offers a unique opportunity to study a top-ranked European degree in the heart of London, surrounded by blue chip companies, major institutions and unrivalled networking opportunities.

GGSB MBA - Career Direction
The GGSB MBA programme is ideal for applicants who would like to strengthen their business knowledge and keep up to date with the latest business trends. The programme demands a commitment from applicants as the GGSB MBA is only offered on a full time basis. However, the opportunities made available upon completion of this programme allow graduates to fully appreciate the comprehensive education they have received.

Class profile
The GGSB MBA welcomes future business leaders from around the world, providing a global experience from the moment you arrive.

From 47 GGSB MBA students (Oct 2010 and Oct 2011 London intakes)

Company-Based Learning
In line with GGSB's objectives of offering students a career-focused innovative education, students on this programme are able to devote up to 1 year to company-based learning, either in the form of a work placement or a full-time paid internship.

Who is the GGSB MBA for?
This programme is specifically designed for high achieving individuals who want to take the next major step along their career path. As a two-year full-time degree it's a major undertaking, but the benefits of graduating from a programme at this level are immeasurable. You'll be focussed on developing a global career at strategic decision making level with a multinational company. It's a challenging but hugely rewarding programme that will set you apart, and raise your profile with a broad range of potential employers.

What will you learn?
The programme examines the most fundamental concepts in international business including marketing, accounting, business law, and strategic management. You'll develop both the academic excellence and practical hands-on skills you need to succeed and you'll also have the opportunity to study specialist modules in year two, with the chance to study some modules in Grenoble. Learn more about the GGSB MBA programme here.

Opportunities made available upon completion of this programme allow graduates to fully appreciate the comprehensive education they have received. Students will benefit from a number of MBA specialisations, each offering a specialised skill set and comprehensive curriculum.
