NETWORKING

The combination of face-to-face periods, weekly videoconferences, and constant virtual teamwork ensures a connection between you and your classmates that continues naturally once the program has finished. You will have the opportunity to share experiences with peers who reside in diverse locations, achieving a vibrancy that will further enrich your experience. The Global Immersion Week also allows students to see first-hand how business is done in different regions.

HARD SKILLS

The curriculum covers each of the different areas key for successful management in today’s fast-paced and demanding business climate. The practical cases allow a deeper look into real organizational challenges and the class environments allow for debate and development around a broad range of key concepts, from the diverse professional roles and industry experiences represented in the student body.

SOFT SKILLS

We recognize that employers search for MBA graduates that possess both hard and soft skills. Our curriculum ensures that students not only acquire the necessary skill set to polish their business acumen, but also learn how to cultivate strong professional relationships, navigate conflicts and strengthen key interpersonal skills. We equip our students with the fundamentals of a core MBA curriculum that they will continue to employ long after the academic year has commenced.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Our Career Services Center helps you learn how to profit from your professional capacities. You count on the lifelong, personalized support of a career service that guides you to ultimately achieving your professional goals. Working hand-in-hand with the center, you will have the opportunity to identify long and short-term goals and strategize how you can achieve them.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

This course provides an overview of the entrepreneurial process, from the conception of a business opportunity to its implementation as a new venture. The course focuses on the attributes of entrepreneurs seeking opportunities and the need to gather resources to convert those opportunities into ventures. Students will learn to evaluate entrepreneurs and their business plans and will work in teams to create their own business plan for a new venture.
