Specifically designed to meet Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship Standard, this programme enables organisations and employees to utilise their Apprenticeship Levy to study towards an AMBA-accredited Executive MBA and develop the management and leadership capabilities required to lead at a senior level.

Our Senior Leader Apprenticeship – The Loughborough Executive MBA pathway is designed for working professionals and is studied part-time over two years in a flexible, blended learning format. This enables you to combine working full-time at your current workplace with studying part-time at one of the UK’s leading business schools.

After successfully completing the two-year Diploma and End Point Assessment you can choose to study for one further year by continuing onto The Loughborough Executive MBA. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme and will spend part of their time at the University and the rest with their employer.

Through modules such as Business Analytics and Decision Making for Leaders, the programme focuses heavily on practical problem-solving skills to address real business challenges. Our work-based assignments give you the opportunity to develop innovative solutions to current business problems, enabling you to improve organisational effectiveness and enhance your leadership skills throughout the programme.
