OUR GLOBAL EXECUTIVE MBA, A UNIQUE BLENDED EDUCATIONAL FORMAT

As a high-level professional, your life is a seamless mix of in-person meetings and online collaboration. That’s why we provide an education that works like you do. It’s not just online. It’s not just on campus. It’s blended.

The blended-learning approach combines world-class faculty, top-of-the-line technology and cutting-edge teaching practices to produce a dynamic learning experience in a multi-faceted environment. The virtual campus and WOW Room represent the front line of modern learning, featuring collaborative, faculty-led forums and sessions that are accessible anywhere there’s an internet connection.

In the virtual campus, you collaborate with other global professionals in small, interactive groups, working on real-world, industry-based case studies. In between these workshops, you participate in the weekly faculty-led sessions from Monday to Thursday—at the time that suits you best. These interactive discussions about chosen topics are insightfully guided by our world-class professors to achieve the desired learning objectives.

The WOW Room takes virtual learning to a new level, enhancing the traditional classroom experience with technological ingenuity and unrivaled flexibility. Connect to live sessions with our expert faculty to engage in real-time discussions and debates, allowing you to effectively collaborate with your classmates, no matter where you are in the world.
