The Mountbatten Institute's staff and corporate sponsors, in association with the Graduate School of Management and Social Sciences of St Mary's University College, Twickenham, London, are committed to furthering the international perspective and prospects of the next generation. A pioneer in the field of work and study abroad programmes, the Institute provides recent graduates and young professionals with the choice of two unique opportunities. We facilitate 12- and 16-month programmes to live, work and study in London, New York and Bangkok. Mountbatten alumni advance their careers with:
Mountbatten provides living arrangements in London and New York, work placement, monthly stipend, accommodation, insurance, visa assistance and support throughout, so that participants can focus on getting the most out of London and New York. For those who complete their MBA in Bangkok, Mountbatten provides accommodation and support services.
Our Patron, The Countess Mountbatten of Burma, greets Mountbatten programme participants in London.
Whether candidates choose the MBA or the PGC, the programme begins with a year in London or New York, with a full-time work placement and evening and weekend classes. MBA students complete their degree with an exciting fieldwork experience in Bangkok.
Founded in New York in 1984, the organization was named in honour of the late Earl Mountbatten of Burma, a senior member of the British Royal Family. After a distinguished career in public service Lord Mountbatten became deeply involved in international education, particularly student exchange and international study. His elder daughter, Lady Patricia, the Countess Mountbatten of Burma, is our Patron. Although she is not involved in the day-to-day affairs of the Institute, she does lend considerable support and encouragement to our efforts.
