A degree in management will give you a wide range of skills, helping you to reach senior positions in the workplace.

There are many benefits to studying management, including drastically improving your career prospects – and with LSBF’s specialist pathways, students can design a bespoke course to suit their needs.


LSBF’s postgraduate management portfolio is designed for future entrepreneurs and business leaders, with a variety of programme options for you to choose from. You can study the management degree that most suits you, whether you want to specialise in international business or luxury brands.

No matter which industry you want to enter, you will learn how to become an effective team leader and increase productivity in all of our courses.


Completing a postgraduate course in management will:

Help you develop practical skills for effective management

All of the courses will give you a variety of techniques and tools for excellent performance in the field that you want to work in. For example, if you choose to study a course in luxury management, you will learn vital operational knowledge that will help you successfully run multiple brands. 

Support a new career direction 

If you want to change your field or narrow your focus – for example, moving from working in fashion to fashion retail – taking a management course in the new subject will give you the knowledge you need to confidently apply for new jobs. 

Give you practical experience

At LSBF, we make sure that our students learn skills that they can apply in the real world, equipping them to step straight into the workplace. Our courses are taught with a hands-on approach, using real case studies and work experience at relevant companies.

Build your network of contacts 

As well as meeting your classmates, you will also have many opportunities to speak to our successful alumni and learn how they accomplished their positions. In addition, we host regular talks from business leaders and entrepreneurs, giving you the chance to meet them and hear their advice.
