Distinguishing Features

Leadership journey

We believe that leadership is not something that can be simply contained in one MBA course. The MBA program was designed so that each of the six modules opens up with a different leadership course, helping students explore different perspectives on what it means to lead.

Leadership course with the Luxembourgish Army

Under the supervision of the Luxembourgish Army General Staff, students will complete a two-day workshop in order to improve their team leadership skills in a challenging environment.

Consulting Project

The Weekend MBA concludes with a consulting project whereby groups of students work on solving real-life issues for real companies operating in Luxembourg or abroad. This project requires the students to combine many previously-learned concepts and apply them in practice while working as a team. The Consulting Project is led and overseen by two LSB faculty members.
