Student Reviews

Lancaster management school lives up to reputation
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The overall study experience was positive with lecturers being very helpful and knowledgeable. The covid situation meant that learning had to be changed to online but i feel that Lancaster adapted well under difficult circumstances and still provided quality teaching.

Review of LUMS, UK.
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The program is exhaustive. It touches the depths of the discipline. However, you need strong resolve because the program is packed in a very short time, so you must learn to keep up as fast as you can't imagine.
