London School of Economics

Initially we were enlisted to raise the profile of the flagship management programme (the Executive Global Masters in Management) of the Department of Management in business education and management media globally, over the past three years BlueSky has considerably expanded its remit with LSE, working to create awareness and enhance the reputation of the Department through its programmes, faculty expertise and successful student community in key markets around the world.

Saїd Business School at the University of Oxford

BlueSky Education worked with the Saїd Business School at the University of Oxford to increase the Saїd Business School’s international visibility in its own right, as the University of Oxford is already an established name throughout the world, and drive student recruitment in key international markets such as Western Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.

We have recently been engaged by École Polytechnique to promote the institution globally and raise its international profile to coincide with the launch of a new bachelor’s programme that will be taught in English for the first time in the university’s history.

Devised by world renowned management guru Henry Mintzberg, the program is often cited as the ‘Anti-MBA’ and adheres to Professor Mintzberg’s high-profile views on business education, focusing not on getting a better job, but doing a better job.
