More info
"Just like kids going back to school, we started crawling our way through the online session[s]...each topic was “ripped apart” by my classmates. Creative ideas and very interesting perspectives were enriched by the great and diverse experiences of my colleagues, which made the learning experience even better than face-to-face at times."
"Unlike face-to-face classroom discussions, online posting is more challenging, yet it gave me an avenue to develop the skill of thinking, composing ideas and responding in a brief and concise manner that can communicate to a global audience."
"The fact that you are part of a global management team while you learn leadership skills across geography, cultures and unimaginable world time-zones is second to none. Statistics confirm that distance learning represents the future because of the way that it perfectly mirrors how multinational corporations are running."
