      As soon as you receive your degree you will be eligible to apply for the Master in International Business Management but as each application is handled individually you might want to contact the admission team whenever you are ready to start.

    I keep on promising to myself that I will apply… but time is passing!
    Realistically speaking, what would be the total expenses I would incur in this one year program, all in, including the residency? Also, how the residency will work, is there any place at the campus or nearby to stay or do I need to book a hotel or something?
    Thank you for your help.
    Best regards,

    • Hello Paulo,
      thanks for your note. Indeed time is passing (sometimes to fast) so now it might be a good time to start. I will get sure that your educational advisor contacts you shortly with the relevant specific information. In the interim all the costs and general information are available in our catalogue that you can download at for the MBA in Leadership & Sustainability or for the general MBA. We do have various accommodation available at a walking distance from our Ambleside campus and are all fairly reasonably priced. All the best wishes in your MBA !
