Event Details

Give your career a step up at this day of talks with leading academics of MBA programmes at LSE and Imperial College London.

“A wonderful day which I’d highly recommend.”

Have you ever dreamed of studying for an MBA? Building on the consistent success of the Guardian’s annual one-day MBA, we are bringing back this insightful seminar that will introduce you to the core elements of a Master of Business Administration degree.

You’ll have unprecedented access to content normally locked away in the ivory towers of universities at a fraction of the cost: while an accredited MBA can cost up to £50,000, our one-day MBA costs less than £200.

The class is taught by some of the UK’s most experienced business academics, who teach MBA programmes at institutions including Imperial College London and London School of Economics and Political Science.

If you’ve ever considered applying for an MBA, or want to advance your business career, this is a course you won’t regret investing in.

If you want to bring a friend, we are delighted to offer a two-ticket deal, which will save you £50! Not only that, but if you'd like to bring more than five colleagues, you can email for a group discount.


The core elements of a master’s degree in business administration and management:

  • Motivation, goal pursuit and consumer behaviour: Dr Heather Kappes from London School of Economics will share insights into motivation and goal pursuit, giving you the tools to close the "intention-behaviour gap" so that you, your employees, and your customers are more likely to achieve the goals you set.
  • Leadership in a digitally transformed world: Professor Nelson Phillips from Imperial College Business School will explore the key leadership competencies that underpin leadership success in modern organisations, and discuss the new challenges that have arisen in the face of digital transformation.
  • We will soon be unveiling the rest of our hugely exciting sessions.

"I thought this course was fascinating, the topics were so interesting and hugely important and relevant for me, and for others I spoke to" - attendee from last year
